Why is uPVC an Ideal Material for Windows?

When you’re looking for replacement windows you’re met with all sorts of different ideas, styles and materials. Materials, in particular, can be difficult to navigate, especially as a quick internet search will only tell you that all the materials are great and way better than the other materials available, leaving you unsure and confused. But it doesn’t have to be this way, especially as which material you choose is really up to your lifestyle and aesthetic preferences.


Here at Premier Windows, we can offer you advice on finding the right window materials for you, helping you to pick the right one for your aesthetic. Not only do we offer advice but we can also provide you with high-quality windows, perfect for almost any home. So if you’re looking into uPVC windows, then you’ve come to the right place. We’re here to help you to understand why uPVC is such an effective material to use for windows.



  • An Affordable Material



Windows aren’t something that you want to skimp on, but that doesn’t mean that you need to have an unlimited budget and uPVC windows are a great, cost-saving option. uPVC is a form of plastic that will still look great, without costing anywhere near as much as timber or aluminium. It’s important to note that they probably won’t last as long as other window materials but if you’re looking for a fast and affordable window, then you should consider uPVC. As a result, they’re particularly an effective choice for those renovating a whole house, leaving a small budget for your windows, or if you’re unexpectedly needing to replace your windows. 



  • Simple to Look After



When it comes to choosing the right materials for your windows one of the key things that you have to consider is your own lifestyle. While timber is a long-lasting material, it does require a lot of effort and maintenance. Not only does it need to be cleaned, but it also needs to be regularly maintained and repainted to ensure that it doesn’t fall apart over time. uPVC, on the other hand, doesn’t require maintenance. 


The non-corrosive material only needs you to wipe it down a little bit every now and then to make sure that it looks as good as new. As a result, if you live a very busy life, you’ll want to make sure that you choose uPVC. Not only will that free up your maintenance time, but you can also remove a lot of the pressure that you’ll feel to upkeep your windows.



  • An Effective Insulator



Your windows need to be a good insulator, to keep your heat in and the noise out. If you have a young family, then you’ll want to make sure that your home is properly insulated and uPVC is the best choice for that. Other materials are good for insulation, but uPVC is one of the best, especially as it’s one of the best materials for double and triple glazing. Not only will this make your home a more enjoyable place to be, but it will also make sure that your heating bill is as low as possible, which is important for all of our customers.
