Just 20 years ago, window and door material choices were limited to wood, steel and aluminium. Today, there are a wealth of alternative materials available to fit a variety of project needs and requirements. Two of the most beneficial choices for windows and doors are composites and PVCu.
Wooden doors can really suffer at the hands of the weather we have here in the UK. Rain and wet conditions can cause wooden doors to swell, which can leave a gap in the frame of your door. When we’re lucky enough to have some sunshine, the wood can warp and paint may peel off in the heat.
A composite door remains in excellent condition all year round. Its reinforced glass polymer overlay means that the door’s exterior stays looking as good as new, while resisting any moisture.
Composite doors can also be designed in a variety of finishes and colours meaning they can offer both traditional and modern aesthetics and are normally installed as standard into new build houses.

Polyvinyl chloride is a flexible plastic used in a range of applications such as clothing, pipes and electric cables. It is also a key ingredient in PVCu windows and doors.
PVCu windows and doors are sturdy, weather resistant and low maintenance, making them a strong and durable addition to any home. The material is frequently hailed as a high-performance option, with insulating properties that help homes retain heat in the winter and cool air during the summer months.
