uPVC Doors: A Buyer’s Guide

White uPVC Front Door

If it’s time to replace your front door, you need to make sure it fulfils a few basic requirements. Not only should it look good, it should be able to withstand the British weather and keep your home secure. Let’s take a look at a few of the features that uPVC doors have, so you can make an informed decision.

A Door That Will Last For 50 Years

uPVC doors can last for up to – and even beyond – 50 years. Therefore, it’s worth taking your time to choose the style you want. Trends come and go. Some styles will quickly go out of fashion, and some colours will too. If you’re going for a door that’s only going to satisfy the taste of the time, you may find yourself wanting to replace it sooner than its expected lifespan. This is fine, so long as you’re prepared for the extra expense. An added benefit is that uPVC can be recycled. Therefore, when you come to remove your door, it won’t be going to landfill.

To get the best value for money, we recommend choosing a door in a neutral shade which complements your home. Simple styles are timeless, as are heritage styles which marry together similar features on the exterior of your home. Because uPVC can be moulded in so many ways, there are a huge range of styles available.

Choose uPVC Doors With Secure Hardware

To ensure that your uPVC door is able to keep your home secure, make sure that you get the appropriate hardware. Everything from the handles to the hinges needs to suit your requirements. If there’s glazing, consider how obscured you need the glass to be. Your door serves as the first port of call in protecting your home, so it’s important that it keeps intruders well away.
