10 reasons why uPVC windows are still a great choice

18th February 2021 |

uPVC Windows

uPVC is a brilliant material for a number of home renovation solutions. As windows go, there is no other material that offers high quality for such an affordable price. There are lots of misconceptions about uPVC windows, including the fact that the frames can only be fitted in white. In this blog, we’ll bust the common myths about uPVC and prove why they are one of the best materials on the market for replacing your windows.

What are uPVC windows?

Flush fit Windows

Unplasticised Polyvinyl Chloride is more commonly known as uPVC. It makes a great substitute for painted wood in window frames as it is easy to clean and durable. Unlike wooden frames, uPVC requires little maintenance and is suitable for the majority of properties.

At Majestic Designs we offer both uPVC and aluminium window frames. We believe that both materials make brilliant windows, but uPVC remains a popular choice among our customers. Here are 10 reasons why uPVC windows are still the unbeatable choice for any home.

1.Energy Efficiency

It is no secret that we are proud of our energy efficiency ratings at Majestic Designs. All of our windows are energy efficiency rated A+14 as standard. In other words, they are 14 grades above an A rated window. On the Window Energy Rating (WER) Scale, this would be the difference between an A grade and an N rated window.

When this is combined with installation from our expert team of MTC registered in house installers, who are trained to the highest standard with FENSA approval, Majestic Designs uPVC windows can offer superior energy efficiency for your home.

2. Cost Effectiveness

Due to the long lasting nature of uPVC and the need for little maintenance, they remain one of the most cost effective and affordable options on the market. When you are considering replacing every window or glazed unit in your home, you will want to consider the cost.

uPVC makes an incredibly affordable option and can continue to save you money once they are installed, with their thermal efficiency proven to save customers hundreds of pounds on heating bills.

3. Soundproofing

A uPVC window is constructed using multi-chambered insulating profiles and argon gas sealed units, this makes uPVC an excellent option for those who would like to create a peaceful home and is especially useful for those who live by busy roads.

All of our windows are British made and manufactured at our state-of-the-art factories in Cheddar.  This ensures the high quality of our windows and allows us to deliver some of the best technologies in modern window manufacturing.

4. Low Maintenance

Unlike wooden frames, uPVC does not need regular treatment or repainting. The occasional wipe down with warm soapy water will keep them looking fresh and new for years to come. Not only will this save money, but it will give you more time to do the things you really enjoy.

Should you need any help with understanding how to care for your new uPVC windows, the Majestic Designs team are always on hand to answer any questions.

5. Durability

Advancements in modern technology have ensured that uPVC windows have become more they were only a few years ago. uPVC is weather resistant and will continue to provide excellent levels of performance for many years. uPVC windows can last 20-30 years with the correct maintenance. Here at Majestic Designs, we are so confident in our product we offer a 10-year warranty on all of our uPVC windows.

6. Colour Choice

It is a common misconception that your uPVC windows must be white. At Majestic Designs, we offer a full roster of coloured frames to suit modern and traditional homes. Whether you are looking for a heritage coloured Chartwell Green or a fashionable Anthracite Grey, your coloured uPVC windows will remain as low maintenance as a classic white uPVC window.

7. Higher Property Value

When considering updating your property, it is always worth considering the property value. Thankfully uPVC windows only enhance the value of your property and can add upwards of 5% to the value of your home. This figure could be even bigger if you are replacing single glazed windows with double glazed uPVC next to a busy road.

8. Security Credentials

All Majestic Designs uPVC windows feature British made security hardware to give you peace of mind in the security of your home. uPVC windows are internally beaded which adds an extra layer of security as they cannot be accessed from the outside.

uPVC windows also benefit from a multi-point locking system which will add an extra layer of security for any window. When you need to ventilate your home but have concerns over security, putting the window lock into the night vent position allows you to leave the window slightly
open whilst remaining locked.

9. Customising your windows

At Majestic Designs all our uPVC windows are made to measure. Whatever your requirements, we can create the perfect window for you. Our uPVC windows are available in a range of styles from casement windows for a modern home and sash windows for a more traditional look.

As well as offering a range of colours and styles, we also offer a range of traditional window fittings to suit period properties and add an extra touch of authenticity.

Once you have contacted us, our friendly sales advisors will visit your home to measure your windows and provide swatches of different styles and colours.

10. uPVC is Recyclable

uPVC is a 100% recyclable material. At Majestic Designs, we recycle all the old uPVC frames we remove. They can then be melted down and re-formed to make a range of products including gutters, pipes and bins.
