Why choose a uPVC front door?

Before we jump into the different colour options for our uPVC front doors, it’s worth noting some of the benefits of uPVC and why it remains the most popular front door material for UK homeowners today.

  • Cost: the outlay for a uPVC front door is low, meaning it will put less of a strain on your budget at the outset.
  • Low Maintenance: uPVC is naturally low maintenance. A simple wipe down with a damp cloth every once in a while is enough to keep your door looking as good as new.
  • Secure: We have sourced uPVC front doors with the highest security credentials. The door frame can be reinforced with steel for extra security and the locking system, backed by a 10-year hardware guarantee.
  • Energy-efficient: uPVC is a naturally thermally efficient material and a replacement uPVC door will improve your property’s insulation and could even save you money on your winter fuel bills.

uPVC front door colours are scratch and fade resistant

The quality of uPVC paint has improved so much that modern colours are scratch proof and fade resistant. Thanks to the advanced colour bond technology used in its formula, which changes the molecular makeup of the uPVC frame, uPVC paint is resistant to the UV damage that causes fading.

Woodgrain finishes, like the ones we offer here at Albany, help to emulate the traditional, heritage aesthetics of timber. This makes it the perfect, maintenance-free alternative to real wooden windows.

With stunning architecture, it’s race-set glamour, farmer’s markets and enviable proximity to the beautiful Cotswolds, it’s not hard to understand why Cheltenham is such popular location. Most homes in this area showcase Regency or period styling. Regency architecture encompasses classical buildings built in the UK during the Regency era in the early 19th century.

Like Cheltenham and other Cotswolds towns, Gloucester has its fair share of stunning Regency and Victorian homes in the city centre. A host of modern apartments with great views across the city have also been built in more recent years, while a traditional Cotswold stone cottage can be found by look to places like Bibury or Stow-on-the-Wold.

If you’re wanting a uPVC front door colour that reflects and enhances the period style of your Cheltenham or Gloucestershire home, try incorporating rich deep blue hues, such as our Steel Blue. Characteristic cool grey tones such as Hazy Grey also work beautifully on Regency-style properties, whilst airy Willow or Chartwell Green shades look glorious against Cotswold stone.
