A lot of thought and careful consideration goes behind building a modern house. Especially when it is your home. To build the home of your dreams, you need things that capture your sense of charm. Your home should communicate your sense of style just by being built. An oasis of you. But it will only be livable when you bake functionality into your design. The elements that define your decor should be durable, functional, safe and long-lasting while their style should be customizable and modular.
Windows and doors are such unique elements that not only bring out the aesthetic of your house but also deliver a lot of functionality to it. They can be used to soundproof your house, make sure to have proper ventilation, enhance your privacy, step-up your decor and add to the overall theme of the house. All of this also depends on the material that is used to build these windows. UPVC windows are preferred by most window manufacturers to create some beautiful pieces that look good and work great! It is also one of the standard materials used to build windows.
There are multiple reasons why UPVC windows are preferred over ordinary window constructions. Let’s take a few moments to explore the benefits of uPVC windows.
Benefits Of uPVC Windows
With increasing innovation in the manufacturing process, you can customise everything according to your preferences. Therefore, technicians can customise your uPVC products according to your preferences.
The first thing that comes to mind before installing a window is whether it is going to be secure or not. uPVC windows have up to ten different locking points that can be added to the frame. This firmly secures the windows and keeps intruders away from your home, keeping you and your family safe.
uPVC windows are natural insulators, which means it keeps the air within your house sealed without letting it get too hot inside. This will reduce your reliance on room heaters to regulate the temperature within your property.
This also helps to save money and conserve energy.
uPVC windows can be opened in two directions, we call this a ‘tilt and turn’ configuration, allowing optimal draft-free ventilation. The windows can tilt inwards and channel the air from outside to get inside the house or it can be opened completely as well.
uPVC windows are also very easy to keep clean. A simple soapy wash keeps the frames looking as new as ever for decades. There is no necessity of sanding or repainting it in the long run. UPVC is a tough material, therefore it doesn’t get damaged easily while scrubbing off the most stubborn stains.
uPVC windows almost never rot, rust, blister or flake as they are naturally resistant towards moisture, atmospheric pollution and moulds. They are also resistant to salt corrosion. This key difference from ordinary windows makes uPVC windows long-lasting and highly durable and much more preferable to aluminium frames.
If uPVC is used in conjunction with double-glazed windows, it can reduce the noises from outside by 80%, creating a peaceful environment for you inside your home.
uPVC requires fewer materials to build in comparison to other frames. It can also be recycled into commercial floor tiles, pipes and much more. the average lifespan of a uPVC is somewhere between 40 to 80 years. This prevents the material from going to waste even if it gets damaged.
uPVC material is quite tough, which means it doesn’t get damaged that easily. The frames can cope with the strongest impacts and are resistant to rust and corrosion. This is especially beneficial in areas with high humidity and heat.
uPVC is a fire-rated material which prevents external fire from spreading and almost all the building regulations state that frames or units of windows and doors should be made out of fire-rated materials.

Tinted glass can come in different colours as per your preference. It is a fantastic insulator as it helps keep the heat outside by preventing it from coming in and keeps your house pleasant. Therefore it is best suited for places that have high temperatures and extreme heat.
This type of glass has a mirror-like reflective coating that reflects heat. This prevents the heat from outside to get in and the heat from inside to radiate out, creating a pleasant zone indoors that remains unaffected by outside temperature to a certain degree.
This type of glass is usually preferred in areas with cold temperatures where it is necessary to preserve the heat inside your house, preventing it from getting out and keeping your house warm.
Low-emission glass is a type of glass that is installed in your windows to block UV rays from entering your house. This helps prevent any type of possible damage that can be caused due to the rays, therefore, keeping you safe.
