In addition, these doors have noise canceling properties so they are an ideal choice if you live on a crowded street or closer to the marketplace.
What are uPVC doors?
Although, uPVC doors have a slimmer framework than composite doors, they are also strong and enduring as they are made by an insulated steel frame in uPVC, also known as unplasticized polyvinyl chloride. They are also low maintenance and long lasting, so you do not have to spend hundreds on them. However, they have less variety in designs and colors available and also have a plasticky finish rather than the fine wooden finish that composite doors have.
