uPVC, short for Unplasticised Polyvinyl Chloride, is one of the most popular and commonly used materials in construction. 

Used primarily for windows and doors, as well as cladding and soffits, recently  has grown in popularity among homeowners. 

But what are the benefits of using uPVC and why should you choose it for your windows and doors?

Let’s take a closer look. 

Benefits of uPVC Windows and Doors

  1. Durability 

A key benefit  of uPVC is that it is an extremely tough and durable material, not susceptible to rot. Therefore, whatever is thrown at it, your windows and doors will stand strong. 

  1. Low maintenance 

Unlike natural material that often needs repainting, varnishing or sanding to look its best, uPVC is practically maintenance free. All that is needed is the occasional wipe down to keep it clean and in optimum condition. 

  1. Affordability 

We all want to get the best value for our money and by opting for uPVC windows or doors you can save a considerable amount, in comparison with timber or aluminium. Whilst prices vary depending on features and quality, generally, uPVC is considerably more affordable than its timber and aluminium counterparts. 

  1. Weather-resistant 

The role of your windows and doors is to protect your home against the elements, which leaves them exposed and vulnerable to weathering. 

uPVC doesn’t react with water and air and, therefore, will  last-longer without ageing than natural materials. 

  1. Attractive appearance 

Another reason why more and more homeowners are opting for uPVC windows and doors is  their customisable and sleek design. 

Available in an array of colours and timber-effect finishes, uPVC windows and doors make a perfect addition and compliment most homes.
