Aluminium Doors

Aluminium doors are something that everyone needs to consider when the time comes for their door replacement and you should trust the experts at Colchester glazing to be able to help you with it. 

Colchester Glazing and Frames began with its founder, Brian Garrity. He started in the industry as an apprentice at the age of 16. He worked his way through the company that he had been working for to eventually become manager of several of the branches throughout the UK. He moved into domestic and commercial glazing with High Way Glass as a manager. Soon after he decided to begin his own company. He began Colchester Glazing in 1999 as a sole trader, becoming quite successful. In 2001 Colchester glazing became an Ltd company with a much larger workforce, but it has still remained as a family company. 

Aluminium doors have numerous benefits compared to other materials that are used to make doors such as UPVC or Wood. All materials do have their benefits, it often depends on what you are looking for in a door as to which material you use. 

Aluminium doors are incredibly strong because Aluminium is incredibly strong. This can mean that you will now be able to reduce your need for a bulky door frame and can result in maximising the space for how much glass can be put into the door. This alone will make your home look and feel that much brighter. A definite advantage.

 They are also very easy to maintain, though occasionally may need refinishing. Aluminium is a material that can stand up against most damages. It is unlikely to be damaged by force, which makes it a very good deterrent against break-ins. 

Aluminium is 100% recyclable. In an ever more eco-friendly world, this is something to carefully consider. They are doors that do not often have to be replaced, which reduced the number of pollutants that are produced in their manufacture. Aluminium is also able to be recycled once the door needs to be replaced, reducing waste and the emissions produced when the time comes for them to be replaced.
