UPVC Door Panels – Choosing the right panel type

April 25, 2023

Why is choosing the right type of door panel so important?

Doors can make a big difference to buildings.

We know they provide security and warmth, but more so these days, they can also create a real style statement. 

A front door is almost always the first thing a person sees as they approach a property.

So, homeowners are going to take their time when perusing the vast array of designs and materials on the market. 

For traders, it’s vital you know as much as possible about all these different types, so you’re ready to answer any questions a person may have. 

In terms of material, UPVC is low-maintenance, high-quality. Doors made from UPVC are extremely energy efficient and should last for decades, able to withstand the harshest of elements, and only requiring a quick wipe down when removing dirt or grime.

UPVC doors also come in a wide range of styles and colours, meaning they have the distinct advantage of looking at home whether on traditional or modern properties. 

When talking about style, a door’s panels are one of the most important aspects to consider. 

Their layout can add significant architectural interest, and yet it’s an area that is sometimes overlooked.
