UPVC v/s Aluminium Windows

A sturdy and durable door frame goes well with a beautiful home. The door and window frames made out of aluminium are popular but they’re not as strong and long-lasting as UPVC doors can be.

For instance, did you know that Fenesta’s UPVC doors:

  • Last for the length of the building’s life?
  • Or that they’re made with extremely stringent processes and undergo rigorous quality testing before they’re sent out to customers?

These are benefits that aluminium and wooden doors don’t have; and the poor quality with aluminium doors is even more noticeable when they warp out of shape with changes in the weather.

Although having aluminium doors installed at home might be an easier option in the beginning, these  doors and windows tend to pale when they’re compared to UPVC. They don’t provide the sound insulation, structural strength, energy savings or the durability and resistance to weather that comes with UPVC.

Still considering your options? Well, you shouldn’t be.
