5 reasons to choose a wood effect uPVC front door over timber

Wood effect uPVC entrance doors offer the look of real timber, with the added benefits of modern precision engineering. This is helpful when it comes to making a good first impression, which is always an important consideration when looking for a new entrance door for your Lincolnshire home.

There are several reasons why you should consider choosing a wood effect uPVC front door; we’ve collected 5 of these:

1. Minimal front door maintenance

It’s recommended that timber doors, much like other wood products, are treated to maintain their looks. This maintenance generally involves frequent cleaning and bi-annual treatment. The uPVC equivalent timber effect front doors only require an occasional wipe with a non-abrasive cloth and soapy water to maintain their contemporary appearance.

2. A modern front door with an authentic timber look

Timber doors are often renowned for their appearance and lifespan. The range of uPVC entrance doors from Cliffside Windows is available in a variety of wood effect colours, including Rosewood and Light Oak, that look like the real deal. The lifespan of timber doors can drop considerably without regular maintenance, leaving them vulnerable to rot and attack from insects. This isn’t a problem with the durable uPVC option.

3. Countless customisable door choices

There is a myriad of customisable options when upgrading to a uPVC entrance door. Make the door your own by selecting from our wide variety of handles, letterboxes, knockers, hinges and decorative glass panels.

4. Suitable for homes in any setting

5. Budget-friendly uPVC front doors

The initial expense and maintenance costs of timber doors can see you paying considerably more.
