uPVC doors are very popular to date and can still be found in millions of houses throughout the UK.  They are made of unplasticised Polyvinyl Chloride, which is the full name of uPVC. It is a type of plastic that’s tough and hasn’t had any additives inserted when manufactured. These doors are made of plastic, that is the reason they have a low-price tag.
