What Are uPVC Windows?

Traditionally, window frames were made from timber or steel. While these materials have many benefits, window manufacturing has evolved over the years, and uPVC is one of the most frequently used materials today. 

uPVC -  Unplasticized Polyvinyl Chloride - is a low maintenance and durable plastic. Easy to shape without compromising its strength, uPVC is malleable enough to create window frames in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Unlike traditional timber and steel window frames, uPVC profiles will not succumb to weather damage over time. 

High quality uPVC is weather resistant and built to last. While timber windows can rot and warp and steel frames are prone to rust, uPVC will keep its flawless finish for several years. By replacing damaged and underperforming windows with uPVC frames, homeowners will experience the following benefits: 

Improved Energy Efficiency - uPVC is an energy efficient material. This means it keeps natural heat locked inside and prevents cold draughts from entering a property. Homes with uPVC windows will stay warmer for longer, are cheaper to heat and have a reduced carbon footprint.

Additional Security - While it may be a plastic based material, uPVC is strong and can improve your home’s security. Many modern uPVC windows are fitted with locking systems that provide high levels of property protection.

Long Lasting Performance - uPVC window frames are durable and weather resistant. Their robust structure means they will not need to be replaced for at least a decade, usually longer. Unlike windows made from other materials, uPVC frames will not rust, discolour, distort or require regular maintenance to stay in good condition. 

uPVC Window Prices - Influencing Cost Factors

uPVC windows are one of the most cost-effective ways to upgrade your home. With so many different profiles available on the market today, there are uPVC windows to suit every property and budget. 

uPVC windows may all be made from the same long lasting material, but all the uPVC window styles available on the market today are not identical. There are many factors that will influence the final price of a uPVC window, including: 

Window Style - As uPVC is a malleable material, it is frequently used to create various window styles. Popular types of uPVC windows include bay windows, casement windows, sash windows and tilt & turn windows. The type of window style you choose will determine the cost of your installation. 

Standard casement windows are the most budget-friendly option, with sash windows often being 50% more and bay windows being the most expensive. Homeowners can expect a bill over 100% higher than casement windows when opting for a bay window installation.

Frame Size - It goes without saying that larger windows are more expensive than smaller windows. With larger panes of glazing and more material needed to manufacture the profile, it is no surprise that bigger windows come with a bigger cost. 

Glazing - The glazing you choose for your windows will impact how much money you need to spend. Contemporary double glazing has many benefits, but it is important to be aware that not all double glazed uPVC windows are the same. Home improvement companies often offer glazing upgrades, making it possible for homeowners to enhance their windows with privacy glass, triple glazing, extra secure glazing and more. 

Custom Design Choices - With bespoke uPVC windows readily available on the market, it has never been easier for homeowners to design the perfect frames for their property. Custom uPVC windows are available with frames available in a wide range of colours and finishes, with several hardware options to choose from. Adding decorative features such as astragal bars to your windows can boost their visual appeal, but these additions will also push up the price. 

Installation Company - The home improvement business is a competitive market, and all companies are trying to offer customers the most attractive price. Before embarking on an uPVC window installation, it is important to do your research and find the best company for your needs and budget. Here at Jewel Windows, we are proud to offer cost effective and high quality uPVC window installations across Surrey.
