uPVC windows are making a comeback, and there are a number of very good reasons why. Long stigmatised as looking cheap compared to timber frames, and other myths surrounding the reliability of the frames have, in the past, pushed uPVC windows aside. However, homeowners up and down the country are returning to uPVC as a stylish, effective and attractive home improvement.
Here are some of the key reasons homeowners are choosing uPVC windows.
A great look for longer
Nowadays there is a lot more choice when it comes to the style and finish of your uPVC windows. If, for instance, you like the classic look of timber frames but prefer the durability and weather resistance of uPVC, you can choose from a natural wood-effect finish for your frames. uPVC offers homeowners flexibility, giving you control over the final look of your home.
uPVC windows are much easier to maintain than timber frames. Where moisture and dampness can cause timber frames to bow, uPVC frames are weather-proof and resistant to the effects of prolonged exposure to the elements. Just make sure you clean them regularly and they will look fabulous for years.
Greater energy efficiency
As well as looking stunning, modern uPVC frames now offer even greater energy efficiency. New technology and advancements in manufacturing have led to unrivalled insulation and reduced heat loss. Not only does this mean you can enjoy a warmer home in the winter months, but greater energy efficiency means reduced heating bills and lower carbon emissions.
uPVC offers your home greater intruder security. The frames are more robust and offer a range of different locking mechanisms. This could also have a knock-on effect on your insurance premiums, leading to further reduced expense.
