7 Reasons to Choose Aluminium Doors for Your Property
If you are wanting to replace a door or multiple doors in your home because of general wear and tear or because you want to update the look of your property, you may be weighing up the pros and cons of each type of door material.
As you are probably aware, you have three choices when it comes to a new door: timber, uPVC or aluminium.
Real wood is popular due to its rustic charm and distinctive look; however, this option can be expensive.
uPVC also has its advantages, including being affordable and easy to maintain, but it is less flexible in design and shape.
Now, let’s take a look at aluminium doors and their benefits.
1. Aluminium is a stable material
As a material, aluminium is incredibly stable and will remain constant during temperature changes. Aluminium doors, for example, will not become warped or twisted over time, unlike uPVC or timber doors that may become hard to open and close.
In fact, aluminium is the best material for any patio doors, whether you want sliding or folding ones.
2. Aluminium doors are strong
Aluminium is an inherently durable material meaning that you will not need unsightly bulky frames and will be able to maximise the amount of glass you can add to your door.
3. Aluminium doors are low maintenance
If you want a door that can be installed and then left alone, then this is the door type for you. Aluminium doors are resistant to scratches and marks as they are powder-coated with an extra tough finish.
4. Aluminium doors are great thermal performers
As a metal, aluminium is amazing at transmitting heat which may put you off if you want to reduce your energy bills. However, aluminium door manufacturers have reacted to this issue and added a layer of insulating material into the frame.
Plus, because the frames are so slim, you can have double or even triple glazing which will keep out the cold weather during winter.
5. Aluminium doors are reusable
If you like to take into consideration your environmental impact when buying products for your home, you will be happy to know that aluminium is 100% recyclable. This means that when you no longer need or want your door, it will not end up in a landfill because will be reused.
6. Aluminium doors offer great value
Although this type of door is not the cheapest option (that would be uPVC), you need to take into consideration the fact that not only will aluminium doors last a lot longer, up to 45 years compared to 25 years for uPVC, they also require very little upkeep so you will have minimal costs further down the road.
7. Aluminium doors offer a choice
Aluminium doors come in a wide range of colours and finishes – there are literally hundreds of options – meaning you will be able to find the perfect style and design to complement your home. You can even have a different colour on each side of your new door!
