uPVC Windows – The benefits of investing in uPVC windows for your home

Posted on: September 29, 2021

uPVC is a popular low-maintenance building material, used in recent years as a substitute for traditional materials when manufacturing windows. uPVC has become one of the most produced synthetic plastic polymers and is fast becoming the top choice material for individuals looking to invest in new windows for their homes. 

Let’s delve into the benefits of investing in uPVC windows for homes!

Energy Efficiency

As a material, uPVC is an effective insulating material. As uPVC windows are effective insulators, fitting them into a home allows for an effective layer of insulation to be installed. As experienced manufacturers of uPVC windows, we have developed advanced manufacturing techniques which allow us to transform windows into a standout feature. Our double glazed units use 24 & 28mm low emissivity (Low-E) glass along with a warm edge spacer bar to improve the thermal efficiency.

Low Maintenance

Another benefit? uPVC windows are extremely low maintenance. uPVC windows do not require the same maintenance levels of traditional wooden windows. With decades of lifespan in them, the worry about needing to replace frequently disappears. Where traditional wooden windows may need to be repainted or resealed from time to time, this does not apply to uPVC windows. The occasional wipe down with warm, soapy water is all that is needed.

Security

Security is one of the most important factors to consider when investing in any windows. But what makes uPVC windows so secure? uPVC windows are manufactured with a solid structure, making them extremely difficult to break into. In addition to this, most uPVC windows feature secure locking systems with most holding the ability to lock at several different points around the frame. 

Durability

With uPVC windows, there is no need to worry about their durability. uPVC windows are renowned for their ability to withstand rotting, rusting, and warping. At Euramax, we use advanced production techniques to ensure each product is produced to our consistently high standards.
