Why Choose Timber Sliding Patio Doors Over PVU-u?
If you’re unsure of what material to choose when it comes to patio doors, the below pointers may well help you in your decision making, but it stands to reason that there’s a clear environmental benefit of choosing timber sliding patio doors over other material types:
- All timber-based patio frames are more environmentally-friendly than PVC-U
- Timber products actually have a negative global warming potential (GWP) meaning that over their 60+ year service
- life they actually reduce the amount of C02e in the atmosphere
- Timber doors have a service life of at least twice that of PVC-u
- All timber patio doors offer better long-term value than PVC-u
- Our timber is sourced from FSC-approved forests and is, therefore, a sustainable and environmentally-friendly choice of wood product
Benefits of Made to Measure Wooden Patio Doors
Here are some great reasons to choose hardwood patio doors…
By fitting a large amount of glass in your home, you’ll increase the amount of natural light that’s let in. The result? A lighter, brighter, airier room that’ll benefit everyone’s health and well-being. The flood of light coming into a once dark room will encourage you to spend more time in there.
Access to Your Garden
Fitting a timber folding sliding patio door will literally open up another world, bringing the outside in. You’ll bask in the glory of enjoying the outdoors from the indoors and love a different way of admiring your patio, lawn or garden. You’ll no doubt spend more time outside!
Improves the Look of Your Property
Instead of seeing dull, drab, un-interesting brick/stone when you look at the back of your property, you’ll feast your eyes to a taste of luxury. As for the inside, that’ll look good, too. The overall appearance of your home will be improved drastically, giving it a true air of elegance.
One of the real benefits of installing timber patio doors is the fact there’s such a large range of sizes available, from really small to ultra large. So, it doesn’t matter how small or big your home is – you’re sure to find the perfect size.
Don’t be fooled by the amount of glass on the door because patio doors certainly don’t skimp on locks. Unlike your old back door that probably had just one lock on it, you have far more locking points on a patio door.
