UPVC windows are quickly growing up to be a favoured choice when selecting windows and for good reason. UPVC windows come with many useful benefits like better insulation which make it a superior choice in the eyes of buyers. Also, these windows are easy to live with because of a much-reduced maintenance routine. UPVC windows are the next step forward and deserve every bit of buyer consideration.
UPVC windows are durable
UPVC windows tend to be stronger and react less to the environment and the elements. The window frames can withstand physical damages up to and sometimes even beyond other frames made from wood or aluminium. And because this is a synthetic material, it has much greater resistance to substances when compared to woods and metals. UPVC frames are barely effected by water and salt. In contrast, both water and salt can ravage through a wooden or a metal frame.
Low maintenance- easy to live with
As a biproduct of the incredible weather resistance, UPVC windows require very little maintenance. The frame itself does not require any sanding or polishing in order to remove wears and blemishes that are caused over the course of a year by rains and other factors. UPVC windows can last for decades as still not require any major work. All you need to do is use some brushes and a bit of soapy water to clean the windows- but then again, this is common work, and any window needs this treatment regardless in order to maintain hygiene.
UPVC windows are more secure
UPVC windows have an overall security advantage over its competition. UPVC windows are light and easy to install but are also impressively strong. This strength combined with double paned glass and the fact that these windows are highly customisable and allow for many types of locks in many different places make these extra secure and more immune to break-ins.
Customisability and choice
Talking about customisability, UPVC windows are some of the most customisable options available on the market. UPVC windows at the beginning were basic windows that came primarily with a white frame. This however has changed as the industry has moved forwards. Nowadays, not only do buyers have a large selection of colours and finishes, they also get to choose from many unique shapes and form factors. In fact, depending on availability in their area, buyers can custom order completely bespoke designs some of which can be really complex and are only made possible thanks to the flexibility of the material.
Also, UPVC windows can be built to adhere to fire safety standards which by regulation require the material to operation for at least an initial 30 minutes in severe situations. This tiny time window can be the difference between a saved life and a casualty.
Sound and heat insulation
UPVC windows can be fitted with double paned glass which aids sound and heat insulation massively. The double paned glass can restrict a larger amount sound waves from entering a room and thus make the decibel reader happy. Double paned glass is also good at keeping the heat inside the room. The windows frame itself also helps with insulation. Aluminium is a good conductor of heat and can draw heat away from the room whilst wood can also be detrimental and suck in some of the heat inside the room. UPVC has none of these heat removing characteristics. The lowered loss of heat can also help decrease electricity bill as you will have to turn the heater on less, meaning that UPVC is a better economical decision in the long run.
UPVC windows allow the best airflow configuration
Thanks to the customisability and the heat insulating properties, UPVC windows allow for the best ventilation. Windows can be custom made with different configurations depending on the area and the house and the airflow requirements. This ensures the best ventilation. UPVC windows are commonly configured in ‘tilt and turn’ form which allows greater usability as the windows can either be turned inwards for quick heat removable in summer or the window can be opened fully allowing great amounts of airflow.
Good for the eco-conscious
UPVC windows are made from recycled materials and can last for decades. Because it is made from recycled materials, UPVC windows are already more eco-friendly than wood or metal windows which require trees to be cut down and earth to be dug up, respectively. The long lifetime also means that UPVC windows contribute to less waste. UPVC windows need to be replaced infrequently allowing lesser production. Lower amounts of production can directly contribute to lower emissions from factories and the delivery process of these windows.
UPVC windows are the best choice for buyers. These windows are customisable, allowing buyers to get exactly what they want. UPVC windows have great security and are easily to live with thanks to their good insulation properties and low maintenance.
