What Makes uPVC Windows So Great?

uPVC windows offer many benefits which are often overlooked. We’ve compared them to windows made from timber and aluminium. Although all of these windows offer their own unique benefits, uPVC comes out on top across the board.


uPVC windows are the most affordable option. Compared to timber and aluminium, uPVC comes out much cheaper. They also require very little maintenance, so in the long-run, they’re also quite cost efficient. Unlike timber, uPVC is not going to rot and doesn’t need to be treated to withstand wet conditions.


Their frames are made from unplasticized polyvinyl chloride. This material is heated and then moulded to achieve the desired shape. Because it’s so easy to mould, there are a huge range of styles and shapes available. uPVC windows can be designed to mimic the look of timber and aluminium frames, and even come in a range of colours and finishes. This makes them a great choice for properties where you want the look and feel of heritage windows, with the modern comforts that come with double glazing and robust security.

uPVC windows are considered as being very secure. Modern locks keep intruders out and allow you to secure your home from the inside. uPVC is a sturdy material that isn’t easy to penetrate. This serves as a good deterrent to criminals. To ensure your windows remain secure throughout their lifetime, the hardware features like the hinges, locks and seals should be inspected from time to time. Be sure to replace these features when necessary.

Low Maintenance

While not completely ‘fit and forget’, uPVC windows will require very little intervention once they’re installed. It’s a good idea to give them a wipe down every so often to get rid of any dirt particles, but the uPVC itself shouldn’t require any more care than that. The non-uPVC components may need replacing every so often, but this is the case for all types of windows. In extremely hot temperatures, uPVC can warp. If this happens and your windows become difficult to shut, you may need to seek a replacement.
