Why aluminium doors will overtake uPVC doors

Home Renovation Trend Study from Houzz
recently revealed how new homebuyers in Britain are investing an average of £42,219 into renovations. Coupled with the upsurge in homebuyers focusing on the energy efficiency of their renovation, it’s of no surprise that the popularity of aluminium doors has increased over the past decade.

Here are 8 reasons why we think aluminium doors, like Origin Doors, are on course to overtake sales of uPVC:

  1. Performance

High grade aluminium provides a much better alternative to those looking to reinvent their home, as it cannot flex or twist. Aluminium can be specified for corner doors too, whereas uPVC can warp and weaken over time. Aluminium does not require re-painting, won’t corrode, discolour, rot, warp or fade. Precision construction and design mean all that’s required is a yearly clean with soapy water. This will keep them at their best for years to come.

  1. Security

According to latest local statistics, crime across Hertfordshire soared over the past 12 months – where reported burglaries rose by 21%. Therefore, guarding against crime is almost certainly at the forefront of every homeowners’ mind. Origins unique 8-point locking system, secure hinges and locking cylinders offer a proven defence that is second to none.

  1. Eco-Friendly

Over one third of homeowners consider improving energy efficiency very important to their projects (38%). Aluminium is the most thermally efficient material available – maximising light and minimising energy bills! We are proud to say that Origin recycles 100% of all its scrap aluminium produced.

  1. Universal

Origin Doors can be designed to open inwards or outwards. Featuring strong magnets that hold doors in place, it makes them easily accessible for customers with disabilities. Origins finger safe gasket technology coupled with the smooth running free glide system also ensures a child-friendly operation that can be seen, felt and admired by all.

  1. Welcome the outside in

Aluminium weighs 67% less than steel, allowing for thinner frames and more glass. Origins ultra-slim, lightweight and durable aluminium doors enable you to live life with no boundaries whatsoever.

  1. Weather resistant

Origin Doors are completely weather repellent, withstanding the test of time with their weather-tight seals and scratch resistant qualities. uPVC is at the lowest end of the scale of thermal efficiency. Prone to gaps, this results in draughts or leaks. Britain’s weather is so unpredictable, peace of mind comes as standard with Origin Doors.

  1. Bespoke & Timeless

Aluminium compliments any property, whether it be a new or existing build, extension or even a period styled cottage. Offering extensive colour and finish palettes, available in 150 RAL colours – the only limit is your imagination.

  1. Investment

Aluminium doors from Origin make an excellent selling point and have real potential to increase the value of the property. Those following a strict budget may question the difference in pricing of aluminium and uPVC products, so lifespan and overall product quality must be taken into consideration here. Origin doors are proven to last at least 3 times as long as uPVC doors, making them real value for money in the long run.
