Durability and low maintenance of front doors
uPVC as a working material for producing doors has a number of advantages and disadvantages which are quite different to those of other front door materials such as wood, steel and aluminium.
In direct comparison it soon becomes clear that uPVC front doors require considerably less maintenance than one of timber. Even over a period of years they suffer only little from the effects of moist and wet conditions, so that they are both long lasting and require no extra protective coating.
At the same time when the door is equipped with a high quality filling material provides the perfect requirements for very good thermal insulation. As uPVC expands on heating, a steel core is recommended as this gives the door a more stable form and prevents distortion caused by warmth. With a uPVC front door from windows24.com you will have a door that will provide a sagfe and attractive gateway over decades to come.
The low price front door
A further point which differentiates the uPVC front door from its cousins of wood or aluminium is the considerably lower costs in manufacture and installation which are generally possible. PVC is easy to work and is a material that can be manufactured relatively cheaplyr.

For these reasons uPVC front doors lend themselves especially for the houses or for apartments where there is already a common main door. But just as suitable are garden houses (e.g. allotments), sheds or toolsheds and, of course, uPVC is a quality, low-price alternative door material for normal households.
uPVC front doors are versatile and can, at minimal cost, be upgraded and improved so that even a humble uPVC door can achieve good values when it comes to soundproofing, thermal isulation and security against brea-ins.
