uPVC windows

uPVC windows have been a popular product for the past few decades. They provide a variety of benefits over more traditional, older window styles whilst maintaining a slick and customizable aesthetic. If you’re interested in what part uPVC has played in the history of UK window installations, along with the advantages they offer, then please see below for a comprehensive outline.

The History Of uPVC Windows

uPVC was first developed by Waldo Semon in 1920. However, it wasn’t until 1935 that they were developed into the window frames we know today. Unfortunately, the birth of uPVC did not correlate with the window boom until the 1980s. This is when production techniques enabled the mass production of high-quality, thermally efficient and durable uPVC windows for the general public.

The Benefits Of uPVC Windows

There’s a wide array of benefits that uPVC windows provide, not only are they highly customisable to suit your home’s design, but they offer utility and functionality.

Please see below for a more detailed insight into these advantages:

Increase Property Value

Prospective buyers will be looking for features within a home that offer longevity. Nobody wants to purchase a property that needs constant repairs and replacements. By installing uPVC windows you can be sure that your potential homeowners will be confident in their reliability and long-lasting qualities. As a result, they will be more likely to fulfil the asking price, and you can adjust this accordingly to meet initial investments.

It’s no secret that uPVC is a resilient product. In fact, it’s far more likely that it will outlive the metal fittings used to secure windows and doors. If you install uPVC windows in your home you can be confident in at least 20 – 30 years of functionality. When maintained appropriately in the right environment, they could even last up to 40 years.
