Choosing the right doors and windows for your home can really enhance the look and feel of your property. Making your home look at its best gives us a sense of pride.
Often patio doors are overlooked however, as bold statements, they are often seen the most from all of the doors around your home. No matter the weather, they either give us access to our outside spaces or give us a window to them. This is why choosing the right patio doors is so important, they’re versatile and can really enhance your home. So which are better uPVC or aluminium patio doors?
Are uPVC Patio Doors Good?
When considering uPVC patio doors there are some factors that may help you to decide. Firstly, uPVC doors come in a choice of colours to suit the style of your home.
They are highly efficient and can be purchased from us either double glazed or triple glazed for extra warmth. Despite being the go to choice for new homes and being very popular across the country, they do have downsides, as does anything.
uPVC doors can be difficult to replace if they ever go faulty. This is due to the whole unit needing replacing once there is something wrong. Notably, they do tend to be bulkier than aluminium doors and can consume some of that window space we all desire. This can affect the aesthetic of your home so it’s something to be aware of.
Why Choose Aluminium Patio Doors?
Aluminum is a highly versatile material that when used properly, has many benefits. Firstly, it is widely recycled, so when aluminum products reach the end of their life they are recycled again and again.
It is also a very energy efficient material both for you home and during the manufacturing process. It actually only requires half of the energy to produce when compared to other metals and materials.
Aluminum patio doors are known for their strength which means only a thin frame is needed when compared to uPVC doors. Giving you a much larger window and view of the scenery outside. The larger windows also open out your home much more, giving you a sense of a much larger space.
Matching uPV doors for energy efficiency, aluminum doors create a great seal to your home. Not to mention, when it comes to style, aluminium doors are available in a wide range of colours that can be created to fit in with the period of your home.
