So the first difference you must have noticed is in the name. PVC stands for poly-vinyl chloride whereas uPVC stands for unplasticised polyvinyl chloride. So basically, PVC is a kind of plastic used for construction purposes whereas uPVC is without any plasticizers. Though PVC is known for the acclaimed benefits of vinyl in it and a great product in terms of durability and affordability, still PVC is not a very favoured material these days.
As per the latest studies and researchers, PVC has lost its lustre in the construction industry. PVC is considered to be one of the most health-hazardous material across. PVC has several issues which include disposal, occupational exposures etc. Burning and exposure to PVC lead to the release of dangerous quantities of dioxin and several cancer-promoting factors. These might result in high health hazards inhuman. Apart from this, it is very difficult to install new locks and other kinds of customisation to these PVC doors as they tend to be very brittle and might crack or get damaged. Also in case of the already existing cracks, it becomes very difficult to repair them. The PVC doors and windows also are not too good with their performance when they are exposed to extreme sunlight for a longer period. These doors tend to fade away and become more brittle and damage easily. The PVC doors and windows are known for their light weights, but this feature affects the strength of the doors and windows highly. When it comes to building external doors for houses, PVC is not safe at all due to its lack of strength.
