uPVC, otherwise known as PVCu, windows and doors are made from a form of plastic called unplasticised polyvinyl chloride. Commonly referred to as rigid PVC, it is a hard plastic that has limited flexibility, making it ideal for window and door frames. uPVC windows and doors are very resistant to heat and light, performing well and providing durability and security for your property. Both strong and long-lasting, uPVC products are often a more economical choice for homeowners.
uPVC is also a great choice due to ease of maintenance and energy efficiency.
uPVC windows and doors are simple to clean with little more than a damp cloth, making them a property owner’s dream. Not only that but they act as a good insulator meaning you have no cold bridge effect, which is a term used to refer to weak spots in the insulation of a property. Correctly designed and fitted uPVC windows and doors are reinforced with steel bars to increase their strength and prevent warping, making them an excellent and durable choice.

When deciding between new aluminium or uPVC frames for your windows and doors, there are a number of factors to consider.
Aluminium frames tend to have a more modern look, being slimmer than uPVC therefore allowing maximum light into a room. They are more durable than uPVC frames with a lifespan of around 50 years however they do come with an increased cost.
uPVC window and door frames are made from less expensive materials and therefore tend to be cheaper than frames made from aluminium. uPVC frames have a lifespan of around 30 years and offer excellent value for money.
Both products come with great energy efficiency ratings and both provide high levels of security.
