What is the best material for patio doors?
uPVC patio doors have thick sightlines which impact on the appearance of the window, cutting down natural light and reducing acoustic insulation. uPVC patio doors can also discolour in sunlight, and although ongoing maintenance is limited, the expected lifetime of a uPVC patio door can be relatively short.
Aluminium patio doors are hard wearing, but can look ‘cold and commercial’ in a domestic environment. Insulation also is an issue – good performance can be achieved, but at a cost.
Composite patio doors like VELFAC feature a slim frame profile and combine the best of two worlds: the warmth of wood on the inside and durability of aluminium on the outside.
