Why You Should Consider a uPVC Front Door

Unplasticised Polyvinyl Chloride (uPVC) is basically pure, rigid plastic, and because of the versatility and resilience of uPVC doors, they are a great choice for a front door. While these doors are very efficient and have many benefits, they are still affordable and priced much lower than many doors that also require far more maintenance. Some other benefits of uPVC doors are:

  • They are low maintenance
  • No replacements are needed
  • There are many design choices

While these doors are already affordable and low maintenance, they will also save a household money on utilities in the long run, since they are great insulators. This manufactured material doesn’t contain any BPA so it’s safe to use and is actually good for the environment. This resilience and ability to insulate make uPVC doors a great option for many different homes in all kinds of climates. As with other manufactured materials, the front door made from uPVC will not transfer temperature from outside, so it is much more energy efficient and may even save enough to match the difference in price.

Energy Efficiency

One reason uPVC is a great material for doors is because it is a good insulator. If you use a uPVC front door, then you will notice that, during hot weather, you will not feel heat coming into the home from your door, and in the winter, these doors can also help to keep the warmth in and the cold out. Also, the fit with a uPVC door doesn’t fluctuate with changes in the weather like wooden front doors will.

The material is very well insulated against temperature, and it is even flame retardant and self-extinguishing. uPVC is also known for preventing thermal bridging, which is the reason some metal doors have problems with condensation. Thermal bridging generally is a portion of the door where heat or cold can be much higher in temperature than other portions of the door which causes condensation at that point. uPVC keeps this from happening and prevents the condensation which could have occurred. A uPVC door will help keep you from spending unnecessary money on utilities, and it will minimize the annoyance of your air conditioning or heating unit struggling to keep up with the weather.

Durability

uPVC doors are best known for their durability. These doors are resistant to all of the elements, and they do not need to be retouched or resealed like most doors made from wood or metal. Because they are constructed from a stable material, uPVC doors are resistant to salt water, pollution, and it is chemical proof. These doors are perfect for use in beach communities, inner cities, or even near any manufacturing facility where concerns about air quality exist.

These doors will not swell or buckle like wood and there is no possibility of rotting, and they will not rust and corrode like many metal materials. uPVC only needs light maintenance, like to be washed, have its seals checked periodically, and a little oil on the hinges and graphite in the locking mechanism. uPVC doors will likely not ever need to be replaced because it won’t deteriorate.

Versatility

Because of this durability and ease of maintenance, uPVC doors are versatile and should be considered for many different types of homes in many different locations. The material makes it possible for them to withstand all types of weather, from cooler locations to more temperate or flood prone areas. No more worry about rotting wood or rusting steel because the material isn’t porous, so water just slides off. Even snow and ice doesn’t damage them.

As mentioned, they are very resilient against weather and pollution, but they also come in many different styles and designs depending on your preference. These doors also come in a variety of colors but can be primed and painted a color you would like too. You could even get a custom door for your home if you choose. Personalized front doors are unique and the minimal difference in cost for a customized door might be exactly what you want for your home. However, if you do happen to live in an area where safety is a concern, be aware that, while being durable, uPVC doors are more lightweight than many other doors, but they are resilient.
