I've been having a Google but nothing is jumping out at me. I assume I need better than a diy superstore but my windows guy doesn't do them so I don't know where to look.

I want a nice grey one with frosted panels either side

Google composite doors - lots of online places.

I have. I'm looking for recommendations..

Sorry - I thought from your OP you hadn't seen any you like.

Have you got a local double glazing supplier? Ours does a nice range and they come to you with a brochure to give you a quote.

how old is the house?

is the door protected by a porch or canopy?

We used either Solidoor or Rockdoor, I can't remember but I'm glad we did

I love wooden doors and felt a heathen using composite but for the lack of draughts alone (our house is old and cold!) I'm glad we did

My DH was completely against composite but when he saw/felt it he was swayed and has no regrets

A friend replaced her new build front door with upvc and the difference in quality with ours is very noticeable

Think it's Solidoor that has an image builder so you can try out the different choices

We have just ordered a rock door. I can't comment on it yet as it has not been fitted but after years of living with an insecure draughty ill fitting original late 1900's wooden door and frame, I am thrilled!

1988 no porch. Will be a canopy.
East facing.

I'll have a look at the solidour builder.

We have a solid wood door - looks beautiful. Had a good joinery company make it.

We have palladio door and it's great.

We've just had a composite door installed. In my professional life I'm totally against them but once I looked closely and found a good supplier, I think they are good quality. Best on a 1950s (or similar) semi though.......Solidor are good.
