Why have uPVC windows fitted at your home
Looking for replacement windows?
Whether it be to improve your home’s look, increase its value, or save money on your energy bills, ArcOframe has the perfect solution.
Short for Unplasticised Polyvinylchloride, uPVC is one of the longest-lasting building materials used to manufacture windows.
uPVC windows offer a multitude of benefits, including (but not limited to) brilliant durability and little maintenance. Unlike other materials, it won’t rot or warp, meaning it’ll look as good as the day it was fitted for many years to come!
Below, we look at some of the reasons why you should consider having UPVC windows fitted.
6 advantages of uPVC windows for your home
1. uPVC windows are excellent value for money
If you’re looking to replace your windows with new ones but can’t afford to spend big, uPVC is a fabulous choice.
Although they look expensive, uPVC windows are actually much more affordable than their timber and aluminium counterparts – allowing you to update your home’s exterior without breaking the bank.
2. uPVC windows are customisable
Available in an assortment of colours and styles, uPVC windows are far from boring!
Whether you’d like something ultra-modern and sophisticated or quirky and rustic, there’s something to suit all tastes and properties.
A great way to add kerb appeal to your home would be to opt for round windows or arched uPVC window frames. These are guaranteed to break up the monotony of straight lines and make your property more visually appealing from the outside!
3. uPVC is a safe choice
Whilst most people choose them because they look great, uPVC window frames provide increased safety and security.
With their tight seals, robust frames, and in-built security features, they make it almost impossible for intruders to break into your home via the windows, protecting your possessions against theft and damage.
And they have special locking mechanisms which prevent little fingers from getting trapped.
4. uPVC doesn’t require much upkeep
uPVC windows and frames are virtually maintenance-free.
To keep them looking their best, all you need to do is give them a quick wipe-over with a soft cloth and warm soapy water every so often.
As uPVC comes in a range of colours, you don’t need to worry about painting them. This means they won’t flake or chip.
5. uPVC windows are extremely energy-efficient
Your choice of window materials can have a drastic impact on the warmth and energy rating of your home.
uPVC can prevent cold air and dampness from entering your home and it retains heat better than other materials.
Having uPVC windows fitted will not only save you money on your monthly energy bills but it’ll also help to reduce your carbon footprint, which is great for the environment!
6. uPVC is weather-resistant
Many window materials suffer from weathering – resulting in premature wear and tear. But this isn’t the case with uPVC.
uPVC is incredibly durable and can withstand extreme elements without buckling, warping or rotting.
Though uPVC windows and frames tend to have a longer lifespan than other materials, taking good care of your soffits and facets will ensure maximum longevity.
