Benefits of UPVC Front Doors
Composite doors and UPVC doors have similar benefits in style but differ in security benefits. When looking at the benefits of UPVC front doors, it’s important to compare them to a common alternative material – timber. Timber or wooden doors were typically used across many houses as this material appears to be rustic and natural. Wooden front doors with single glazed glass panels are a common design feature, especially on older buildings from certain time periods. Unfortunately, wood isn’t the most ideal material as it has structural weaknesses and requires heavy maintenance. Excessive force such as an axe or hammer will make short work of a wooden door which puts you at risk to intruders should they be fully committed to getting in. Wood also has a tendency to rot and will require a lot of maintenance to stop this from happening. Rotten wood snaps off and makes it even more of a risk should an intruder try to get in. Single glazed windows similarly will be weak to weapons. They are also less energy efficient than double or triple glazing alternatives. UPVC on the other hand requires little maintenance, can’t rot and axes and hammers will glance off the material until someone notices the break in and alerts the authorities.
Benefits of Composite Front Doors
Composite front doors are similar to UPVC front doors in that they require little to no maintenance and are much stronger than their timber counterparts. Composite doors really add to the security of your front door as they are highly resistant to a wide range of weapons that are used to break into properties. Similarly to UPVC front doors, composite doors can be matched to the style of your property to ensure that the period style of the building stays preserved. The difference is that you have a highly secure composite or UPVC front door instead of a weaker timber door that could be compromised. You also are able to install a new front door that has more secure glass and you can be sure that this glass is more energy efficient than a single glazed glass attachment. The fact that the glass is more energy efficient can also see a return on your investment over a long time frame as you save money on energy bills.
