If you are looking to install french doors in your home you may quickly realize that you have many options to choose from. You can buy wood, aluminum or UPVC french doors. More and more people are choosing to go with UPVC over your other choices. So why use UPVC french doors? Well lets look at what makes UPVC so great.
One reason why people like to choose french doors made of UPVC over any other types is that they are easy to maintain. Wood requires a lot of maintenance since they need to be repainted or polished every so many years. Even aluminum needs to be repainted, although not as often as wood. UPVC never needs to be painted, only periodic cleaning with a cloth.
Another major reason why more people have turned to buying UPVC french doors is their durability and resistance to weather. No matter what the weather can throw at you UPVC can withstand it. For instance, in areas where you have a lot of exposure to sun, like California or Arizona, wood and aluminum can easily fade requiring repainting or polishing. UPVC doors are UV resistant so they are negatively effected by extreme exposure to the sun.
Maybe you live in a part of the country that sees a lot of heavy rain like Washington. Wood can begin to rot when overly exposed to water and both wood an aluminum have a tendency to allow water to seep in due to poor insulation. These UPVC french doors have a special built in track to divert water elsewhere. They also can stand up against heavy winds better.
You may also be surprised to hear that french doors made with white UPVC are also more environmentally friendly. In order to make wood framed doors, trees must be cut down which is not environmentally friendly. Aluminum frames require a lot of energy usage when in production, whereas UVPC frames use much less energy making it a more environmentally friendly choice. They are also a poor conductor of heat which helps you to be more energy efficient in heating costs. Wood and aluminum are much better conductors of heat which leads to increased heat loss.
Using white UPVC for your exterior doors and windows also makes sense from a security point of view. These units come with double glazed panels, in many cases manufactured from intruder resistant laminated glass, and with multi-point locking systems making them particularly suitable for exterior doors to the deck, garden, yard or patio.
Since UPVC french doors seem to be a better choice in french doors you may want to check into some of these great brands:
* Fenesta comes in many different configurations. One of their most popular styles is the CD3A which is a twin sash side hung door.
* Magnus doors are another great choice of french doors. Again they are sold in different designs and make a great addition to any home.
So the next time you are considering adding french doors to your home, look into UPVC french doors to add beauty and increase your homes value.
