by | May 23, 2021 | Doors

Buying a new front door is an exciting time. It’s often the first impression guests get of your home, and you want to make the right choice. Picking the material of your new door is a decision that you will need to make and there are a few to choose from. One of the most popular choices for front and back doors in Scotland is uPVC.

To help you decide if a uPVC door is right for you, read on for some of the benefits.

First, what is upvc?

uPVC, or Unplasticised Polyvinyl Chloride, is a robust type of plastic. It’s a popular building material due to it’s durability, long-life span and low-maintenance upkeep. In the home improvements industry we use it for many things, including windows, cladding, roofline and of course, doors.

So, What are the benefits of a upvc door?

One of the major benefits of a uPVC door is that they are cost-effective. uPVC is one of the most affordable materials on the market. Plus it doesn’t require costly maintenance. Therefore, a uPVC door is a great choice if you are creating a new entrance on a budget.


Gone are the days where uPVC door meant limited style and colour choice. Advances in the industry have resulted in more style and colour choice than ever before. At EasyGLAZE, we have a huge range of styles, colours and finishes available. You can create your own bespoke design and we’ll make it to order.


uPVC doors are extremely hard-wearing. They are made from uPVC skins bonded to a reinforced core which makes them difficult to break and a great deterrent to intruders. uPVC also offers protection from water ingress and can withstand everyday knocks and scratches – keeping your home warm and safe for a very long time.


Insulation is another massive benefit of uPVC doors, they are extremely energy-efficient. Not only will they block outdoor elements from your home, they will help prevent any heat from escaping – leading to lower energy bills and more pennies in your pocket.


uPVC doors are very easy to keep looking pristine. Unlike other materials, like timber, uPVC won’t rot or warp. All it takes is a damp, soft cloth and some warm soapy water to keep it looking as good as new. Always avoid abrasive cleaners as it can damage your door and void your guarantee.


Another great perk of uPVC doors is their low impact on the environment. Our doors, for example, are crafted using non-toxic materials and are fully-recyclable. This, combined with their long-life span, means that their long-term impact on the environment is minimal. Plus their excellent insulation and energy-efficiency helps shrink the home’s carbon footprint and makes them a sustainable choice.
