Maintenance

One of the main reasons we love the Solidor composite door here at Ilkley Windows, is that the doors are manufactured in the most environmentally friendly way possible. Produced using 100% fully recycled door frame reinforcing; the doors are some of the most environment friendly doors available on the market.
The doors are designed and manufactured using the most premium materials, hardware and accessories ensuring that the doors will benefit from having a substantial lifespan.


To ensure that your door is kept in the best possible condition, we recommend wiping it down with a soft, damp, lint free cloth using mild soapy water. To maintain the appearance of your door handles we suggest polishing the handle and letter plate with a standard furniture polish every month. Lubricating the working parts of the locks and hinges once a year will also help to maintain and increase the longevity of your Solidor composite door.
