uPVC Patio Doors
Patio doors made from uPVC are generally more cost effective than timber and aluminium doors. This is due to the fact that uPVC is a synthetic material and production costs are lower. However, this offers some benefits for homeowners who are looking to add some contemporary features to their modern, or even period home.
uPVC as a door frame construction material offers inherent benefits such as its durability and ability to withstand the elements, as well as ease of cleaning. Specific benefits you can enjoy by choosing uPVC doors for your patio include the following:
- A warmer home: the combination of uPVC, an effective insulator and A-rated double glazing ensures all the heat is retained within your home. Heat retention helps reduce heating costs.
- Security: most uPVC patio doors are equipped with multi-point locking systems which are impenetrable from outside, ensuring your home is protected.
- Quite: soft close mechanism, a single continuous rubber seal and inert gas filled cavity all help to keep external noise outside. The continuous seal also makes your door weatherproof for longer.
- Decorative: uPVC can come in the standard white trim, or you can choose timber effect uPVC (hardwood or Rosewood) and create the natural timber look without the huge price tag.
When it comes to choosing the perfect patio doors, the construction material is key. Each material suits different scenarios and design ideas but uPVC is versatile and customisable to blend in with a host of style and design choices.
