What are uPVC windows?
uPVC or un-plasticised Polyvinyl Chloride is the material now most commonly used in double glazing windows. It is an extremely durable material, lasting 20 -30 years and often longer with the added benefit of being thoroughly insulating and secure. It is a very low maintenance material, requiring only an occasional wipe and is cleverly weather resistant. uPVC is non-porous so unlike traditionally painted wooden frames, they will not rot, rust, peel or flake. uPVC windows will ultimately save you money on your energy bills as they efficiently keep the cold and draft out and your warm heat inside your home.
Frames have come a long way since their arrival in the 1960s and mass popularity in the 80s and early 90s with a far greater choice of look and finish. You can even replicate the look of wood if that’s your preference. There are now a vast number of frame options to choose from to suit the style of your home including traditional looking sash windows.
What about uPVC Doors?
uPVC doors are much stronger than traditional wooden doors. They are hard wearing, retaining their shape regardless of heat and wet weather unlike wooden doors which may warp. They are also made to be extremely secure having a core of galvanised steel alongside secure modern locking mechanisms. Like the windows, they provide a high level of insulation, which means your warm heat stays in and cold air and noise pollution stays out.
Types of uPVC Windows
Nowadays you can choose the uPVC window that best suits your home. Whether you are in a Victorian home or country cottage, there is a uPVC window frame to suit you.
uPVC Tilt and Turn Windows
Tilt and Turn windows can be opened in a variety of ways. A tilt restrictor means you can have the window securely open for ventilation with complete peace of mind. These windows can be easily cleaned from the inside by opening and swinging the window inwards.
uPVC Casement Windows
Casement windows are traditionally hinged at the side but can also be fitted to open at the top, known as an awning window or at the bottom known as hoppers.
uPVC Sash Windows
Sash windows keep the look traditional and elegant while being modern, efficient and practical.
uPVC Reversible Windows
Reversible windows are a contemporary, easy maintenance window designed to invite maximum light into your room. They tilt 180 degrees leaving them easy to clean from the inside. Child safety catches are added to restrict the aperture while still allowing room for ventilation.
Colour & finish
No longer are we restricted to a simple white plastic looking frame. uPVC windows are now available in a wide choice of colours and finishes including silver greys for a subtle metallic finish or woodgrain in a variety of shades such as oak or rosewood. Frames can be treated both internally and out or left with a clean white finish internally.
