uPVC Doors Pros and Cons

uPVC Doors are one of our most popular services and it’s not hard to see why. Gone are the days of bulky plastic uPVC, now our designs are sleek and stylish, perfect for the busy home!

Take a look at the pros and cons of uPVC doors, to find the perfect entrance door for you and your home.

Pros of uPVC Doors 

  • Low Maintenance
  • Weather Resistant
  • Security and Safety
  • Noise Reducing

Low Maintenance: One of the main pros of uPVC doors is that they’re very low maintenance, which is great for the busy family home. With no chipping or painting needed, all you need to maintain your doors is a soapy liquid mixture for regular cleaning.

Weather Resistant: uPVC doors are weather resistant, meaning they won’t swell in the rain which can result in a damaged door.

Security: Our doors feature a multi-point locking system so you can rest assured that you and your family are safe. With anti-bump technology and snap door cylinders, our doors are reinforced with MDF for a strong exterior. Helping keep burglars at bay and your mind at ease. If the strength wasn’t enough, our doors are also fire retardant!

Noise Reducing: Our doors are perfect for those living in busy or heavy traffic areas. When combined with double glazing, you can enjoy 50% more noise reduction in comparison to other doors. 

Cons of uPVC Doors 

  • Colour Range
  • Appearance
  • Discolouration

Colour: Whilst our doors are available in a variety of designs, most doors are white meaning there is a lack of colour ranges with uPVC. If you live in a particularly sandy area or can’t guarantee regular maintenance you may want to consider another door as white shows dirt easily.

Appearance: uPVC doors are great for the contemporary home but may look out of place in an older home. Installing this type of door on an old home can take away the authentic character that comes with period homes. You may want to enhance these features with a composite door. 

Discolouration: Over time your uPVC door can discolour and become yellow in appearance. Unfortunately nothing can stop this as it is a feature of your door ageing and is a sign that your door may be at the end of its lifespan. Not to worry, uPVC lasts a very long time so this won’t happen for many years!
