uPVC windows are made from a rigid and durable plastic material known as unplasticized polyvinyl chloride. These windows offer several advantages, including excellent energy efficiency, low maintenance requirements, cost-effectiveness, sound insulation, and customizability. The insulating properties of uPVC windows help to reduce heat loss, making them energy-efficient and potentially lowering your energy bills. Additionally, they are resistant to rot, corrosion, and pests, requiring minimal upkeep. Furthermore, uPVC windows come in various styles and sizes, allowing for customization to suit your preferences.
However, uPVC windows do have some limitations. They offer a more limited range of color options compared to aluminium windows. Additionally, while uPVC is a durable material, it is not as structurally strong as aluminium, which may limit the window’s size or design options. Moreover, prolonged exposure to UV radiation can cause uPVC windows to fade over time.
