What the experts say about uPVC windows

10th August 2015 |

uPVC Windows


There’s no denying that uPVC windows have come a long way since their adoption in the 1980s. If the last time you had new windows installed was before the millennium
, you’ll be surprised as to how far they’ve come.

uPVC windows: the nation’s most popular type of window

Improved manufacturing methods, better quality materials and intricate precision-engineering techniques mean that modern uPVC windows are capable of achieving exceptional levels of performance and aesthetics. Much more so than they ever were in the 1980s. It shouldn’t come as a surprise then, that thanks to their all-round versatility and excellent performance uPVC windows are now one of the most frequently installed types of windows in Somerset and across the UK.

As double glazing manufacturers and installers, Majestic Designs create a range of high quality A+14 uPVC windows from our Cheddar-based factories. We’re incredibly proud of the standard of our uPVC windows, and are convinced of the excellent thermal, acoustic and aesthetic benefits that they can provide a home.

What modern uPVC windows offer

Don’t just take our word for it though. Experts in the double glazing industry are also singing the praises of the humble uPVC window. Here are a few of the main benefits that modern uPVC windows can provide:

1. Better energy efficiency

The secret to the enhanced thermal and acoustic insulation that a modern uPVC window provides lies in its profile: the strips of hollow uPVC that create the window and frame. In modern uPVC windows, these utilise a intricate series of thermal breaks that help to trap heat and slow its escape from a building. The development of better precision-cutting technology has enabled increasingly thermoretentive breaks to be designed, which can keep your home warmer for longer and even save you money on your heating bills as a result.

All of the windows that Majestic offer are A+14 rated, meaning that they offer truly exceptional thermal and acoustic performance.

2. Increased durability and lifespan

Better extrusion techniques (the process of forming the plastic into profile strips) mean that modern uPVC windows are much stronger than older uPVC units and have an increased lifespan. Many uPVC windows now have working lifespans of decades rather than a few years.

In addition, older uPVC can suffer from fading caused by exposure to prolonged sunlight and UV. This results in the uPVC turning an unsightly shade of yellow. Modern uPVC is designed with fade-resistance in mind and won’t suffer from this problem.

3. Better choice of colours and finishes

In the 1980s and early 1990s there used to be a joke in the double glazing industry that said you could have any colour of uPVC window- as long as it was white.

Nowadays this couldn’t be further from the truth. There are literally thousands of different colour and finish combinations to choose from when it comes to customising a uPVC window. Here at Majestic for instance, we offer a large variety of different hues, including popular heritage colours such as Chartwell Green, Cream and French Grey. We can also offer timber effect foils so that you can make your uPVC windows look like wood!

4. Reduced maintenance

Modern uPVC windows are also much easier to maintain, making them perfect for busy homeowners or those with restricted mobility. Unlike timber windows which require new coats of paint every few years, modern uPVC should only require the occasional clean to be kept working well.
