Get Superior Thermal Performance With Your Bay Area Home’s New Vinyl Replacement Door.
Vinyl has arguably the most value of any door material for its cost. Made primarily from a plastic material called polyvinyl chloride (PVC), vinyl doors are the cheapest option that also offer unmatched durability and energy efficiency. If you choose the right manufacturer, virtually no maintenance is required to maintain your vinyl doors and keep them looking like new. That’s why we rely on a few very trusted companies to provide a vinyl door material that will add value to your home for many years to come.
Main Advantages of Vinyl Doors
Vinyl doors are inexpensive and gain even more value with their durability and energy efficiency.
Vinyl is plastic-based so, while it isn’t the most eco-friendly material to produce, it makes up for this in its thermal performance. Generally, vinyl doors have welded corners which reduce airflow. These doors also often come with Low-E (low emissivity) insulated glass.
Because vinyl doors are so lightweight, they are very easy to install and burn less fossil fuels during transport.
Your vinyl door will never need to be painted, they are easy to clean and are scratch-resistant.
The Science Behind Vinyl
The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) provides accurate information to measure and compare energy efficiency – often called “thermal performance” – of windows and doors. Vinyl is usually constructed of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) with ultraviolet light (UV) stabilizers. PVC construction has a high R-value. An R-value is the metric measuring a material’s resistance to heat flowing through it. With a higher R-value, vinyl has more resistance to the flow of heat than many other materials. We are proud to carry Anlin products, products that lead the industry in thermal performance with their vinyl windows and doors.
