If you look up your street, there’s a good chance that many of the houses will have UPVC doors on them. And there is a good reason for this – in fact, there are a number of good reasons. Here’s a look at the benefits of UPVC doors if you are considering changing yours.
Top of the list for these doors are the security features they have. Many have metal cores that make them much tougher than the average wooden door. Glazing in them will be double glazing so this also makes it tougher than single pane glass. And most of the doors will come with multiple points locking systems which are the British Standard – this can even get you a discount on your home insurance if you have the same locks on your windows.
Another big benefit of these doors is that they help improve the energy efficiency of your home. By creating a strong, well-insulated and draft proofed entrance to your home, you will lose less heat in the winter. This means it can cost less to heat your home. They also help reduce condensation in the property when the right ventilation is used.
UPVC doors are durable and need very little maintenance – there’s no need to regularly paint or stain them. Simple washing with a cloth and warm soapy water will return them to top condition. And they come in a wide variety of colours and styles to pair with any type of window.
