When time comes to upgrade or remodel your entrance way, take a look at the Australian Glass and Glazing uPVC doors.
Many older homes have been built using the old tried wooden door. Now there are other choices available for homeowners these days and one very popular choice is the uPVC door. uPVC has many of the better characteristics of the wood style door and additionally uPVC door skin presents a water proof barrier that will outperform a regular wood door for many years to come.
In the past doors were made out of wood which needed constant maintenance and painting or aluminum which held up better to the elements but has problems with thermal performance and condensation on the frames causing corrosion over time. uPVC doors do not suffer from any of those problems and they are just about as thermally efficient as wood and do not require that much in the way of maintenance just occasional cleaning and some lubrication on the locking mechanism.
Australian Glass and Glazing doors and windows have fusion welded seamless corners throughout the frame and sash. The fusion welding itself is a major improvement in the construction. Welding process eliminates the weakest part of the door which is the seams at the corners or joints which can weaken over time allowing air and water to penetrate the joint. A fusion welded joint never weakens or allows any air or water infiltration like aluminium or wooden doors. uPVC frame material is pretty much the industry standard in residential and commercial applications today.
