Rockdoor is the leading name in composite doors, often asked for by name by thousands of homeowners across the country year after year. As such, our hard-earned reputation is only as good as the installers you choose to install your front door, back door stable door or french doors.

We’re pretty sure that you’ve chosen your Rockdoor composite front doors to combine the wood-grained style with the practicality and security benefits offered by modern technology.

Thanks to the years of research and innovation which has gone into selecting each component material of Rockdoor’s composite doors, your new front door will be durable, low maintenance, heat proofed, soundproofed and incredibly secure, as it will feature Rockdoor’s state of the art, multipoint locking system.

After investing so much time selecting the perfect front door to compliment the age and style of your home, imagine your frustration if the incredible functionality of your composite door was compromised by the poor fitting. The majority of aftercare problems following the installation of a composite door are caused by the fitting.

In view of Rockdoor’s reputation as the composite door market leader for innovation and quality, your complete satisfaction is of major importance to us. It is therefore important that your Rockdoor front door is fitted by a professional fitter of which there are many. Purchasing your composite door from a FENSA registered specialist supplier where possible and checking the company’s credentials and track record is strongly recommended.

Due to the weight of your Rockdoor composite door being similar to that of a wooden door, two fitters may be required. A cheaper, unqualified fitter is a false economy, putting your composite door at risk of damage during the installation, which could invalidate your guarantee.

As you’ll be opening and closing your front door countless times each day, eradicating the potential for irritations is vital. Only an expert fitter will have the knowledge and experience to make the all-important minor adjustments when installing your composite door that can make a major difference in avoiding problems further down the line.

Your composite front door, back door or stable door will only be low maintenance, reliable and hassle-free if it is fitted to the same high standards that were required in its manufacture by Rockdoor.

Keeping in mind the following checklist with regards to your composite door fitting will help you to avoid disappointment. Prior to your composite door installation, check that your front door, back door or stable door is the style, colour and exact size you ordered.

Unlike a UPVC door, your Rockdoor composite door will have been individually crafted from scratch with millimetre precision to your exact specifications. Upon completion of your composite door installation, test that all the handles, locks and hinges function perfectly before the fitter leaves. Your professional composite door fitter should also dispose of your old front door, back door or stable door.

The Rockdoor name is synonymous with quality and reliability and all our composite doors are stringently tested to exceed industry standards for strength, security and durability for your total peace of mind. Invest the same diligence in choosing a fitter as you did when selecting your Rockdoor front door, back door or stable door and your composite door is likely to far outlive it’s ten-year Rockdoor guarantee, lasting up to an impressive thirty years!
