What are UPVC windows?
UPVC windows are similar in design to traditional wooden windows, however, the material used to construct them is much more low-maintenance and also more cost-effective. The strength and versatility that UPVC offers make it a perfect choice for a new window, especially when a homeowner is refitting their entire home.
What is the difference between PVC and UPVC windows?
The difference between PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and UPVC (unplasticised polyvinyl chloride) lies in their chemical composition. Whilst both materials are ideally suited for construction, PVC’s chemical makeup leads it to be more porous, leading to require more maintenance over time compared to UPVC. UPVC, in comparison, is much more rigid, enjoys a longer lifespan and better maintains its colour over time.
What is better UPVC windows or aluminium?
Both aluminium and UPVC are commonly used to build windows, which material you choose will depend on your requirements. uPVC tends to be more affordable however both materials, if looked after, can last up to 20 years. Those seeking a sleeker design may choose aluminium for its flexibility, however, there are many imitation wood effects which aren’t possible with this material.
How long do UPVC windows last?
uPVC windows can last up to 20 years if properly built, fitted and maintained. Manufacture and design processes behind uPVC windows has changed significantly in the last 20 years, so new windows could feasibly last even longer.
Are wooden windows better than uPVC?
Wooden windows have different properties to uPVC and may be more suitable for homeowners willing to pay more money and spend more time maintaining them over the years. Whilst the argument could be made for wooden windows lasting much longer than uPVC, this longevity is not guaranteed and can only be achieved with frequent maintenance and care. In comparison, uPVC is more affordable and can be maintained quickly and easily.
What are the benefits of uPVC windows?
uPVC windows have a number of benefits that make them an ideal choice when choosing to replace old windows. uPVC is highly customisable, giving the customer a wide range of choice of styles and colours. This material also doesn’t compromise on security, in combination with industry-standard locking mechanisms, these windows provide excellent protection from intruders. Both soundproofing and heat insulation is provided with these windows, with all windows also being fire-resistant.
How often should uPVC windows be replaced?
Generally speaking, uPVC windows should only be replaced when they are showing physical signs of wear. Over the course of 20 or 30 years, uPVC windows may lose their integrity leading to draught or small leaks. Cracks, chips or broken panes obviously require fixing straight away. Some homeowners will consider replacing their uPVC windows when they feel that they’re no longer receiving the sound and heat insulation benefits of the material.
