The most common exterior doors materials
When planning the best solution for patio doors, homeowners generally choose between bifold doors and sliding doors. Surely, both bifold and sliding doors can add functionality and style to any home in an instant. Besides, thanks to modern materials and innovative technology, they offer functionality and ease of use. Nevertheless, there are some differences between these two types of modern glazed doors.
External bifold doors, as well as the internal ones, are probably mostly valued for ease of access between the indoors and outdoors and neat fold back action. The major advantage of smart aluminium bifold doors ( as well as the uPVC) is also the ability to open up an entire opening and provide panoramic views, completely removing any obstruction from inside to outside. Bifold doors may fold inwards or outwards, depending on the amount of space which you have when you slide all doors on the side.
Aluminium is strong and durable so aluminium exterior doors are tough and robust. They are incredibly resilient to the effects of weather so they do not rust and don’t require repainting. Aluminium has unlimited processing potential and can be used to make custom-sized doors.
Steel is stronger than other materials and steel exterior doors provide your home with maximum security from the outside elements or intruders. They are energy-efficient, weather resistant and they require little maintenance.
uPVC (Unplasticised Polyvinylchloride) is a highly resilient material. It is naturally resistant to moisture, atmospheric pollutions and rust. uPVC is a low maintenance material and uPVC front doors will retain their shape and strength for years to come.
What type of front doors is the best?
There is no definite answer to the above question, but we have some pointers for you that will help you make the right choice. As we already mentioned above, your house front doors should match and complement the style of your home, but that’s not all you have to take into consideration. Choosing the optimal material for your front doors is also crucial, determining not only the security level, but also energy efficiency. Good external doors will contribute significantly to making your home warm in winter and cool in summer. And last, but definitely not least, important matter is the available hardware and glazing options for a given model.
