Types of external PVC French Windows and Doors

It may come as no surprise to learn that PVC French windows and doors can vary greatly in terms of style and design. The type of product you ultimately choose will influence how much your installation costs.

Homeowners also have the option to buy products made from timber or aluminium, but neither of these materials have the same combination of strength, durability, adaptability and competitive pricing structure of modern PVC, particularly for external use.

With external PVC French windows and doors, homeowners also have the option of a versatile sliding-French door style installation, which provides a distinctive alternative to traditional, somewhat plain full glass sliding patio doors, with the added benefits of unrestricted access, superior light optimisation and improved airflow.

They also create the perfect opening from the home into the garden so, when they open onto a patio, they increase the internal and external living space.

Decorative Georgian, Square Lead and Diamond Lead designs add their own unique style to a choice of double or triple glazing.
