We can see a lot of homes now installing UPVC doors and windows instead of those with conventional materials such as wood or aluminum. This is very likely because of its great quality and energy efficiency. Unplasticized Poly Vinyl Chloride doors and windows are much safer to use, less expensive and require less amount of maintenance.
The durability and strength of the UPVC compound are comparable to that of aluminum and steel in terms of security. Keep in mind however, that a tough door or window is not always enough to protect your house from potential break-ins. Your door must also be installed with a high quality door lock system in order to be completely safe and protected.
Repair costs don't come cheap when issues such as fading, rotting and rusting occur, which may lead to projects like applying new paint, sanding or reinstalling. Doors made from UPVC are less likely to face those issues and the chance of being damage is very low due to its heavy weather resistance. Only a regular cleaning is required. Any dirty stains can be simply removed by wiping them with a damp cloth.
Since UPVC is a great heat insulator, heat will not flow too much in the house during a hot weather hence it'll keep the room temperature low. UPVC doors and windows are an ideal choice for both long term and short term use. They are not only economical, but also require less energy to produce and are recyclable as well.
