What is a uPVC front door?

A uPVC front door is a type of front door made from uPVC (unplasticized polyvinyl chloride), which is a durable, low-maintenance material that is often used in window frames and doors. uPVC front doors have become increasingly popular in recent years due to their many benefits.
uPVC front doors are highly energy-efficient, as they have a good insulation value and can help to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. They are also highly durable and resistant to weathering, warping, and rotting, making them a low-maintenance option that can last for many years.

How long should a uPVC front door last?

A uPVC front door is a durable, long-lasting option for your home, and it can last for many years if properly maintained. The lifespan of a uPVC front door can vary depending on several factors, such as the quality of the materials used, the installation method, and the level of maintenance it receives.

Generally, a well-maintained uPVC front door can last for 20-30 years or more. However, some uPVC front doors may last longer than others, depending on the quality of the materials and the level of wear and tear they experience

Energy Efficient Doors

Better for you, your home and the environment

As a material, uPVC is a poor conductor of heat. For this reason, it’s more difficult for heat to travel through it. This means it’s ideal for use as an entrance door as it keeps more heat inside the home. Energy ratings of 'A+' can be achieved, some of the best you'll find on any entrance door. The main benefit of such excellent thermal performance is that you can enjoy a cosier home for less, as you won’t have to spend so much on your heating bills. Also, consuming less energy comes with the added bonus of being more eco-friendly. Help yourself and the environment with one of our exceptional uPVC exterior doors!

Highly Secure Doors

Keep your property safe from potential intrusions

Security wise, our uPVC exterior doors will not let you down. As standard, we fit them with advanced multi-point locking systems, which lock the doors in place at multiple points in the frame. This leaves would-be intruders without a weak area they can exploit in order to breach your home. If you require additional proof that they’re up to the task of securing your home, it’s worth knowing they’ve been manufactured to Secured by Design standards. Secured by the Design is the official flagship scheme of the UK Police that recognises high standards of security.

Whether it’s heavy snow, gale-force winds or extreme heat, the incredible durability of our modern uPVC doors means that it’s able to withstand them all. As uPVC is resistant to discolouration and it will not crack, not only will it keep your home protected from the elements but it will retain a quality finish whilst doing so.
