4 reasons why uPVC doors are the most cost-efficient
uPVC is one of the most popular types of materials used in modern doors. In comparison to other materials like timber and aluminium, uPVC is generally lower in cost and offers some great benefits including easy maintenance, durability and versatility.
What is uPVC?
uPVC stands for Unplasticised Polyvinyl Chloride. It’s a form of plastic characterised by its hard and inflexible form. Unplasticised simply means that no additives have been inserted during the manufacturing process. Although typically white, our uPVC doors are available in a wide range of colours and smooth or woodgrain finishes, allowing you to adapt their appearance to match new and older properties alike. Plus, if you’d like a different finish for the interior and exterior framing, which is known as a dual colour option, we have this available too.
uPVC doors are easy and cheap to maintain
uPVC doors are remarkably easy to maintain and do not require expensive varnishes or timely polishing, unlike timber doors. There is no flaking, no fading, no rusting and no rotting. All that is needed to keep them looking brand new, and performing efficiently, is the occasional wipe down with a damp cloth; it is that easy and cost efficient!
uPVC doors are durable
uPVC doors durability makes them a cost-effective choice in the long run. Unlike, wooden doors that can be prone to termite-infestation, rusting, fading and warping— uPVC profiles retain their shape, size and colour for years to come. This means you can expect your uPVC door to last for many years to come looking as good as the day it was installed.
uPVC doors are energy efficient
Once installed, uPVC doors can help you save money on your energy bills. uPVC doors are known for their energy efficiency and come with multi-chambered sections within the frame and multiple glazing options which helps in thermal insulation, keeping the cold in out and your warm air in.
