Wood is a beautiful material (smell, look and feel), but it is complex and high maintenance. Wood is a natural product and it will shrink and swell according to humidity and solid wood is expensive. Engineered doors are by far the most commonly sold type of door so they are more prolific in availability and they are generally cheaper than solid doors.

And are pvc skins not grp,

This makes me smile. grp was used for car bodies, and lorry cabs. Many 4x4 have grp roofs, and in the construction industry grp has been around for 30+ years as a roof valley. Nobody would construct any of these items from pvcu because it would be useless. However in the home improvement market common sense goes out the window and using pvcu for a door skin is claimed to be advantageous.
Buyer beware comes to mind here.

you really do write some rubbish with little thought for what you say grp is a glass layering system which gives it the strength to use in the examples you give upvc does not have this strength in flat sheet hence why it is not used in these applications

Many upvc doors split as they age. So grp skins became the answer to overcome this. Most manufacturers followed this route. Some did not.
