A: I’m not an expert, but it’s my opinion that the composite product is stronger. One thing to consider is that this product won’t weather like wood, and won’t be attacked by ants, termites, etc. so it should retain its initial strength longer. It also won’t splinter if it does get attacked during a break-in. Not an expert as I said, but these are my thoughts about your concern. Hope this helps!
A: It is about the same as wood. It has been tested for wind. However, I would still invest in a security plate that installs on the backside of the jambe and wraps around. There are some parts of the country that it is code that you have a security plate on both the door and the jamb. I would search the WEB for door jamb reinforcement plate.
A: It is a mixture of wood flour PVC. The expansion and contraction is minimal because of the wood flour.
A: Yes, you do have to bore the latch and mortise for the hinges.
