It is not surprising that uPVC windows are so popular in the UK. There are several reasons why homeowners choose them so frequently.
These are the three main reasons people choose this type of window:
- They are very low maintenance
- They are extremely good insulators
- They are versatile and offer a wide range of choice
Windows made from uPVC are almost maintenance free, as they won’t rot, flake or rust. They are also extremely durable and will not fade, so will keep looking like new for many years. Even in a wet climate like our Essex one, usually all that is needed is an occasional wipe down with a damp cloth.
They are extremely good insulators
UPVC windows retain heat much more effectively than wooden or aluminum frames, making them very good insulators. In addition to helping keep your home warmer, this can also mean lower energy bills as less heat is lost and therefore wasted. With gas and electricity costs increasing, this is good news in our chilly Essex winters. Replacing your existing windows with double glazed ones can cut your energy bills by between ten and fifteen percent, which is not to be sniffed at.
They are versatile and offer a wide range of choice
They are suitable for just about any home as they come in such a wide range of styles and colours, making them just as appropriate for traditional homes as for modern ones. UPVC windows can also easily incorporate safety and security features that are invaluable for peace of mind.
