Transform your Home with UPVC DoorsuPVC doors are not only beautiful but also durable and environmentally friendly – they’re a great way to update your home and make it more secure and energy efficient. For a handy guide to UPVC doors, read on and find out whether they are right for your home.
Which Doors to Choose
Of course, you don’t have to limit yourself to your main front and back door when it comes to installing UPVC doors – you could fit French doors or patio doors too in a range of styles. But your front door should be the focal point to your home – it is the first thing visitors to your home see and should make a lasting (positive) impression.
When choosing a UPVC door supplier and manufacturer, make sure they hold the necessary safety and other accreditations – an outer frame depth of 60mm – 70mm is recommended for external doors, and any UPVC door supplied should be impact resistant and fitted with multi-point locks for security.
A Range of Colours
It’s possible to buy UPVC doors in a range of colours and finishes to suit your home – many suppliers offer a custom spray paint service where you can have the doors made to match existing architecture perfectly. It’s also possible to choose from patterned glass options, leading and Georgian bars for your new door.
The Benefits of UPVC
UPVC is not only durable and versatile, it is also energy efficient and UPVC doors are far more secure than traditional wooden doors. Because most UPCS doors have a galvanised steel inner core, they are very hard to break down and it’s almost impossible to crowbar them open. They reduce outside noise thanks to their insulating qualities, and because they are designed to fit more snugly than wooden doors, they will trap heat inside and prevent heat loss from your property, so you’ll notice savings on your energy bills. Compared to installing wooden doors, UPVC doors require little in the way of maintenance, so once they have been installed they will remain looking beautiful throughout their lifespan.
The average price of a front or back UPVC door ranges from £200 to £500. Prices can however change subject to installing, location and choice.
