What is uPVC?

uPVC is one of the most popular material choices for doors and window frames in the UK. Its main advantages include excellent sound and temperature insulation, longevity, and low maintenance. On top of all that, uPVC is actually one of the cheapest window frame materials out there, which makes it a very convenient choice for any budget.

uPVC, also known as unplasticised polyvinyl chloride, is actually a special type of PVC that is rigid and highly resistant to temperature and weather damage. It is usually used for window and door frames grace to its weather and sound insulating qualities, but also for pipes, connectors, and other plumbing fixtures, grace to its longevity. If you’re thinking of getting new windows and are considering uPVC ones, here are some of their main advantages:

uPVC windows are one of the least expensive window options available on the market. However, in this case, cheap does not equal low quality – quite the contrary. uPVC window frames have significantly more advantages than drawbacks while retailing for half the price of, say, wooden frames.

They are great sound insulators. Various studies conducted in big cities have shown that uPVC windows are the best choice for keeping the noise out of your house or office, reducing it by over 70%. Not only that, but they are also excellent temperature insulators. Getting uPVC windows means that the summer heat and the winter cold will stay where they’re meant to stay – outside. Grace to this, you will also be saving up energy you’d otherwise waste on continuously warming or cooling your house. Which brings us to the next point…
Not only are uPVC windows cheap to begin with, but they are also savvy in the long run. As the material is a great temperature insulator, you will not need as much energy for heating or cooling the house. In addition, uPVC is virtually indestructible, being immune to humidity and weather damage.

Unlike solid wood or aluminum, uPVC is 100% resistant to humidity and does not require any specific maintenance to keep the rust or rot away. Moreover, uPVC is not prone to cracking due to temperature fluctuations, which is another common issue with timber windows. It will also not change color from excessive exposure to the sun, which is, again, the case of some types of wooden frames. Grace to this, and the fact that it doesn’t heat up easily, uPVC is the best choice for houses that get a lot of direct sunlight. However, it’s also a great choice for humid climates, as it is not affected by constant humidity, and does a great job keeping the moisture out of your house.

Lastly, uPVC windows will last you forever. With little to no maintenance needed, your new uPVC windows can make it through decades of burning sunlight, heavy rain, and snow. They are also one of the best choices when it comes to home security, especially if we’re talking about steel-reinforced uPVC windows – but the regular ones are pretty sturdy as well.
Bottom line is that uPVC is probably the best window frame material on the market right now, both in terms of quality and price. If you’re looking for new windows that will last you a lifetime, require little to no maintenance, and help you save money, look no further than uPVC ones.
