From patio doors and French doors to front doors, uPVC represents a strong material option whether you are looking for a front door or a back door. The search for a new front door or back door can be tricky with so many options available. A new uPVC door can provide many of the benefits that Kent homeowners look for.
UPVC doors are renowned for their exceptional longevity and durability, making them an excellent investment for homeowners. These doors are specifically designed to withstand the test of time and remain in top condition even in harsh weather conditions.
UPVC doors offer significant energy-saving benefits by providing effective insulation and reducing heat transfer in the home. This insulation capability helps homeowners save on utility bills and create a more comfortable living environment.
By investing in uPVC doors with excellent thermal performance and energy ratings, Kent homeowners can enjoy long-term energy savings and create a more sustainable living space.
UPVC doors are designed with multiple chambers within the frames, which act as insulating barriers. These chambers create air pockets that help to reduce the transfer of heat between the inside and outside of the house. As a result, uPVC doors provide better thermal insulation compared to traditional materials like wood or aluminium.
By minimising heat loss through the doors, uPVC helps to create a more energy-efficient home. This reduces the reliance on heating systems which can result in lower energy consumption and reduced heating bills.
The U-value measures the rate of heat loss through a material. UPVC doors have low U-values, indicating their high thermal efficiency. These doors effectively restrict the escape of heat during winter and prevent the entry of heat during summer, helping to maintain a consistent indoor temperature throughout the year.
UPVC doors are often assigned energy ratings based on their thermal performance. These ratings range from A+ to G, with A+ being the most energy-efficient. Homeowners can look for uPVC doors with higher energy ratings to ensure optimal energy savings. The energy efficiency offered by uPVC doors aligns with our sustainability goals and environmental consciousness.Get a Quote
UPVC doors are known for their robust high security features, offering homeowners peace of mind and protection against intruders.
UPVC doors are equipped with advanced multi-point locking systems. These systems secure the door at multiple points along the frame, usually at least three locking points. High security locks make it significantly more difficult for intruders to force the door open, providing enhanced security compared to traditional single-point locks.
UPVC doors often feature reinforced frames made from durable materials, such as steel or aluminium. These reinforced frames add strength and rigidity to the door structure, making it highly resistant to forced entry attempts. The sturdy construction of uPVC doors acts as a strong deterrent to potential intruders.
Many uPVC doors come with toughened or laminated glass options. Toughened glass is significantly stronger than regular glass and less prone to shattering. In case of an attempted break-in, toughened glass offers an additional layer of protection, making it difficult for intruders to gain access to the property.
UPVC doors can be fitted with anti-snap cylinder locks, which are designed to prevent a popular method used by burglars known as lock snapping. Anti-snap locks provide added security by ensuring that the lock remains intact even if an intruder attempts to snap or break it.
UPVC doors can be further reinforced with additional security hardware such as hinge protectors, security chains and door viewers. These features provide extra layers of protection and allow homeowners to control access to their property.Get a Quote
UPVC doors are known for their excellent soundproofing qualities, which can significantly reduce external noise and create a quieter, more peaceful indoor environment.
UPVC doors are constructed with multiple chambers within the frames. These chambers act as barriers to sound waves, minimising their transmission into the interior space. The insulation provided by uPVC doors helps to reduce the impact of external noise sources, such as traffic, construction, or neighbourhood disturbances.
Many uPVC doors come with the option of double or triple glazing. Multiple layers of glass with an insulating gas layer in between create an effective sound barrier. These glazing options further enhance the soundproofing qualities of uPVC doors, significantly reducing noise infiltration.
By minimising external noise, uPVC doors contribute to a more comfortable and peaceful indoor environment. They create a retreat from the hustle and bustle of the outside world, allowing Kent homeowners to enjoy a quieter and more relaxing atmosphere. UPVC doors' insulation properties not only save energy but also contribute to enhanced comfort within the home.
These doors help to eliminate drafts and cold spots, ensuring a cosy indoor environment throughout the year. By reducing heat transfer, uPVC doors also prevent the formation of condensation on the interior surfaces, thus maintaining a drier and healthier living space.Get a Quote
UPVC doors offer the advantage of being virtually maintenance-free, requiring minimal upkeep when compared to other materials like wood or aluminium.
Unlike wooden doors that often require regular painting or staining to maintain their appearance, uPVC doors do not need to be painted. The colour of uPVC doors is integrated into the material during the manufacturing process, meaning they retain their colour and finish over time without the need for repainting.
Cleaning uPVC doors is a simple and straightforward task. The smooth surface of uPVC makes it easy to wipe away dirt, dust or grime using a mild soap solution and a soft cloth. There is no need for specialised cleaning agents or rigorous maintenance routines. Regular cleaning helps uPVC doors retain their visual appeal and keeps them looking fresh and well-maintained.
Due to their durability and resistance to wear and tear, uPVC doors have a long lifespan. They do not warp, crack or lose their shape over time, making them a reliable and long-lasting investment for homeowners.Get a Quote
UPVC doors offer a wide range of styles and design options, allowing customers to personalise their doors and create a perfect match for their home's aesthetics using a bespoke design. From colours and finishes to styles and decorative elements, uPVC doors provide versatility and customisation possibilities.
UPVC doors come in an extensive range of colours, ranging from classic white to vibrant shades and wood-effect finishes. Customers can choose a colour that complements their home's exterior and blends seamlessly with the overall design scheme.
For those who desire the natural beauty of wood but prefer the low-maintenance benefits of uPVC, wood-effect finishes are an excellent option. These finishes accurately replicate the texture and appearance of various wood grains, allowing customers to enjoy the aesthetic appeal of wood without the need for regular upkeep.
UPVC doors often feature glass panels, which can be customised with a variety of patterns, designs, or textures. Customers can choose from options such as frosted glass, stained glass or decorative patterns to add a touch of elegance and individuality to their doors.
UPVC doors offer flexibility in terms of hardware and accessories. You can select handles, letterboxes, knockers, hinges and other door fittings in various styles and finishes to further personalise their doors. These small details can make a significant difference in enhancing the overall aesthetic appeal.
UPVC doors can be tailored to specific measurements, ensuring a perfect fit for each customer's requirements. Whether they need a standard-sized door or a custom-sized one, uPVC doors can be manufactured accordingly, accommodating different door openings and architectural specifications.Get a Quote
Composite doors are typically more expensive than uPVC doors due to their multi-material construction and enhanced design options. Composite doors feature a combination of materials such as wood, fibreglass and uPVC, increasing production costs.
The intricate construction and customisation possibilities contribute to the higher price. Additionally, composite doors may offer better energy efficiency and security features. However, uPVC doors are more affordable as they primarily consist of uPVC material.Get a Quote
