There are a number of ways in which uPVC windows can benefit you and your home. Firstly, uPVC windows are low maintenance. The window frames don’t need painting or sealing, significantly reducing the maintenance required over their lifetime – uPVC windows are easily cleaned with soapy water. A key benefit of uPVC windows is that they don’t rot and are resistant to corrosion; this makes uPVC windows extremely long lasting. Unlike metals, uPVC is non-conductive, so your window frames will not transfer heat and contribute to a more consistent internal temperature for your home. Combining uPVC window frames and double glazing makes for highly energy efficient windows, as well as providing excellent acoustic insulation. Double glazed uPVC windows can cut down noise by as much as 70%. Thanks to their integrated locking systems, uPVC windows provide a high level of security for your home. Most uPVC window locking systems lock at multiple points all around the sash and frame. Compared to aluminium and timber alternatives, uPVC windows are low cost. Prices can vary depending on the quality and features of the windows, but you can expect a much more affordable price by choosing a uPVC window.
