Are All Double Glazed Windows uPVC?

Double Glazing

Georgian Bar Double Glazing Windows

Professionally fitted double glazed windows will give your home the finish it deserves.

Installing uPVC double glazing is probably one of the best investments you could make for your home. Whatever style of home you have – modern and contemporary, or an older, period property – professionally fitted double glazed windows will give it the finish it deserves. But are all double glazed windows uPVC and do they need to be?

What is uPVC double glazing?

uPVC double glazing is the standard name for the type of sealed window that uses two panes of glass with a sealed gap filled with argon gas. Two panes of glass are better than one and they work, together with the gap, to keep more heat in and give your home better energy efficiency and sound insulation.

But uPVC only refers to the material used for the frames. The most common type of double glazing frames are white uPVC which is usually the standard colour. But nowadays, technology allows us to create uPVC frames for your double glazed windows in a wide range of colours to suit your taste and the style of your home.

If your home is a period property choosing a heritage colour or woodgrain finish will give you an added layer of classic authenticity.

While the majority of double glazed windows are uPVC, fortunately, the days of being restricted to ‘any colour as long as it’s white’ are long gone. Using the choice of uPVC colourways from Majestic Designs, your double glazing can perfectly complement your home, giving it its own character and personality.

With a choice of 12 colours (including standard white), your home can stand out from the crowd or blend in perfectly. And if your home is a period property, listed, or located in a conservation area, choosing a heritage colour, such as Chartwell Green, or a woodgrain finish will give you an added layer of classic authenticity – as well as a durable and hard wearing surface.

Your double glazing options

So are all double glazed windows uPVC? Not at all. As we mentioned, the majority of double glazed windows are uPVC, whether they’re white or not. But uPVC is only one option. Majestic Designs also offer a range of aluminium frames that use the highest quality materials and technology to give your double glazing another stunning frame option.

Together with our A+14 window energy rated, double glazed windows fitted as standard, whether your frame choice is uPVC or aluminium, they can also be enhanced by a wide range of window accessories and hardware choices to suit.

Majestic Designs for uPVC double glazing

Not all double glazed windows are uPVC, but it’s a cost-effective and energy-efficient way to give you stability and durability with an elegant – and colourful – finish. Whatever colour you choose, the quality will be clear. Plus, as the windows age, the colour won’t fade or peel, and the uPVC won’t rot, meaning they’re almost maintenance free.

Every window is designed and manufactured in our state of the art factories across Somerset using the highest quality materials – and they’re always professionally installed by Majestic Designs experienced installers. So when you need double glazing to keep your home warmer and stylishly finished, contact our customer service team at Majestic Designs or call us on 01934 741 294 today.

And don’t forget, you can always visit our showroom in Cheddar to see the quality of our uPVC double glazed windows in person.
