As a homeowner, you have more options for every aspect of your home than people ever did in the past. Thanks to innovation and technology, everything from home hardware to home decor has undergone a massive upgrade, giving you a wide range to choose from, based on both, functionality and design.
The same holds true for uPVC doors. Unplasticized polyvinyl chloride (uPVC) is a highly versatile and sustainable material that is used for making doors and windows. Because it is unplasticized, uPVC is more durable and rigid, thus bringing a range of benefits that traditional materials like wood cannot match. uPVC is the ideal choice for doors and windows because, unlike wood, steel, iron and others, it retains its shape in all weather conditions.
Here are the points you should consider while buying uPVC doors for your home:
Different spaces, different frames
Not every home is the same, and similarly, not every space within a home is the same. For common areas like the living room, you might prefer a door that lets in a lot of light and gives you a seamless view of the outdoors, especially if you are facing a garden or a similarly attractive landscape. For more private spaces like bedrooms, you should opt for doors that are more basic and functional. The frame that you choose depends on factors such as the design aesthetic of your space, your personal style preferences, functionality, and the convenience of the people living in your home.
uPVC Casement doors are the most basic design of doors with a single open system. They are ideal for spaces where doors serve a purely functional role. They are extremely secure and provide excellent insulation when closed.
uPVC Sliding doors consist of two or more frames that slide horizontally, to the left or right on tracks. These doors are very smooth and easy to operate since they are slightly raised above the tracks. uPVC Sliding doors are a perfect fit for spaces that need to look well-lit and spacious, like living rooms and drawing rooms.
The unique uPVC Slide and Fold doors are designed to provide maximum flexibility while lending a smart and attractive look. uPVC Slide and Fold doors come with a sash which lets you move them in either direction or allows you to stack them to one end. They are also highly durable, making them ideal for all temperatures and weather conditions. They have the option of being opened completely or partially, letting you regulate the amount of ventilation you need.
Low maintenance for hassle-free living
One of the most attractive features of uPVC doors is that they are extremely easy and cost-effective to maintain compared to traditional materials like wood. Wooden doors are susceptible to problems like termite-infestation, warping, fading and cracking. Just simple cleaning with a regular detergent will keep uPVC doors looking great for years to come. These doors do not require the use of expensive varnishes or regular polishing to keep them looking like new even after years of heavy use. They are also ideally suited for every climate – hot, humid, dry, or cold. Also, uPVC is a self-extinguishing material, which means it will immediately curb the spread of fire.
Durability & functionality should be at the top of your list
While choosing the right uPVC doors, performance and durability should always be on the top of your mind. uPVC doors and windows come with a lot of functional features that make them ideal for different spaces in your home, and also suited for any weather condition. They provide excellent heat insulation, which is at least 2.2 times better than aluminium. They can be up to 3 times more effective at maintaining cool temperatures within a building, thereby helping you save on electricity costs. They are also totally water-proof and immune to saline water, which makes them the best suited material for coastal areas and other areas that experience heavy rainfall. Also, they are designed with a unique double-seal system that greatly reduces noise pollution by 30 – 40 decibels.
