UPVC windows are well known to be durable and they require a little amount of maintenance compared to many conventional types of windows in the market, such as the ones made of wood or aluminium, thus making it an increasingly popular choice among many homeowners today.
The term uPVC stands for unplasticized polyvinyl chloride and it is also sometimes referred to as vinyl sliding. The advantage of uPVC windows compared to aluminium ones, as mentioned earlier, is that uPVC windows require less maintenance. This is because uPVCs can withstand the exposure to sun better than most types of materials. Aluminium doors or windows will normally fade with time and with prolonged exposure to the sun, so they might need to be refurbished every once a while. That is however, not the case with uPVC furniture. UPVC doors and windows do not fade easily even after excessive exposure to sun and they can be cleaned regularly without losing their aesthetics.
These vinyl sliding windows are extremely weatherproof as well. They are especially resistant to the wind and rain. The special mechanism built in uPVC windows prevents the rain water from coming in and the steel reinforced frame helps them to withstand strong winds.
It does not require much amount of energy to manufacture uPVC furniture, therefore they are much more economical and environment friendly. UPVC windows are great at heat insulation and that helps maintain a cool temperature within the room, which also indirectly help cut down additional costs and electricity that you might use in air conditioners or fans.
There are quite a number of different window frame designs to choose from, depending on your personal preference. Some of the common types that you can find are sliding windows, casement windows, awning windows, and the glasses can be color tinted, single or double glazed.
