Aluminium vs uPVC Doors
Aluminium is a more expensive building material than uPVC. But while uPVC does offer plenty of benefits for your home, aluminium is in a different league.
For a start, aluminium has better performance, and for longer too. Aluminium’s inherent strength makes it more durable against bad weather, meaning wind and rain doesn’t affect it whatsoever. It’ll also last for more than 40 years without losing its performance, a decade longer than uPVC.
When it comes to bi-fold doors, aluminium is also a marked improvement. Aluminium is slimmer while also maintaining its shape, making it perfect for gorgeous views of your garden and securing your home.
Aluminium Or uPVC Doors?
In particular, security is where aluminium genuinely makes a difference. Aluminium is an impact-resistant material that is far harder to break. Additionally, an aluminium finish better conceals the internal hardware of your doors, meaning they'll be free from prying hands. Finally, aluminium offers better insulation than uPVC. Because of aluminium's secure design, it constricts the space draughts can get through. As well as this, you'll lose less warmth from your home through the door, meaning you can save even more money on your energy bills.
