This blog will give you a deeper insight into the benefits and disadvantages of PVCu, aluminium and composite doors and you can outweigh the factors to help you decide what is best for you. Investing in a new door is a worthwhile project to consider, this is because most homes are built with standard wooden or PVCu doors, which do not have the reinforced, or energy efficient properties you need. PVCu doors from Elite Windows however have been newly manufactured to provide the best security and energy conservation. With PVCu being presently engineered to preserve heat and exclude draughts, these doors are the cheapest alternative to invest in. Cheap yet beneficial, if you’re looking for a basic, standardised door, which provides great functionality with keeping your temperatures maintained, then you have found the best option for you. PVCu is a popular choice of door and many homeowners choose this option above all others – mostly due to it’s affordable price tag. However, although benefitting in certain ways, PVCu doors do not have a durable structure and will loose colour and shape pretty easily – especially if exposed to constant wear and tear or harsh weather.

Next to discuss are the attributes that come with aluminium doors, these doors are not as commonly seen or chosen, however they have many potential benefits. Aluminium options are cheap door alternatives and are available in a range of colours and styles to allow people to find something to complement their home. Aluminium has sturdy properties and last for long-term periods, however when exposed to harsh weather and constant usage everyday – you can expect the aluminium to begin deteriorating in quality. Aluminium is prone to corroding and weathering plays a big part in speeding up this process.

In terms of aesthetics, aluminium door are available in an array of finishes and you can be guaranteed to find the perfect model to complement your home’s appearance, but as mentioned previously such doors only retain standard benefits and they excel only in terms of price.
