West Country Windows Invites Customers to Explore Its Range of uPVC Front Doors

Yeovil-based windows company West Country Windows says it wants to address out-of-date public perceptions around modern uPVC doors and the quality and features they offer. The construction industry first embraced the polymer because of its strong resistance to corrosion and its longevity. It quickly emerged as a go-to material for pipes and also insulating electrical wiring. Today, it’s thought that half of the world’s PVC is used for water and sewer pipes. It wasn’t until the 1970s and 1980s that uPVC was firmly established as an alternative to popular materials in both doors and windows, and consequently its image has become stuck in that era.

uPVC windows were massive by the 1990s. By 2000, internally glazed windows with softer shaped frames were widely available. uPVC gained a positive reputation for its durability and impressive thermal resistance. The evolution of uPVC also led to the invention of the composite door (where uPVC was combined with a range of other materials including foam, wood and glass reinforced plastic). Today it suffers unfairly from a cheap and tacky image, when in reality the doors offer considerably more variety (white, rosewood and golden oak are popular choices today). 10-year installation guarantees are commonplace, so consumers are not risking anything by opting for uPVC.In addition, many uPVC front and back doors feature advanced Low-E toughened safety glass technology that is extremely secure and designed to reflect heat back into the room. At West Country Windows we consider our uPVC front doors to be a visually striking, smart, modern and cost-effective solution that will ensure your home is warmer, quieter and more secure – as well as demanding very little maintenance effort. Other options include high security multipoint locks, barrel, keys and cills. uPVC doors can be sent pre-hung and positioned in a steel reinforced uPVC frame, including 3D adjustable hinges for simplified installation.

uPVC is often mistakenly viewed as unsustainable as it’s not organic like timber. However, the modern windows last for up to 35 years and can be recycled 10 times! If you’re unconvinced, it might be worth considering uPVC’s successor (of sorts) and going for a composite front door. Unlike uPVC which is totally plastic, composite front doors involve a number of different materials pressed and glued together in high pressure conditions. These are selected carefully for their unique properties, and are designed to counteract common flaws found in single-material doors. Composite doors are thicker than their uPVC counterparts at 44mm, compared to uPVC’s 28mm.
