Are white uPVC windows still popular?

23rd October 2017 |

Double Glazing

white uPVC windows

The simple answer is YES! Of course they are! White uPVC windows are used in over 80% of window installations across the UK including replacement windows and residential new builds. This is a huge portion of a highly competitive market. So, what are the reasons for their continuing popularity? Let’s take a closer look.

The lasting popularity of white uPVC windows

White uPVC windows first became popular in the early 1980s. As people sought to better insulate their homes, they became the ubiquitous sight on homes across the country. By the turn of the century, over three quarters of all UK properties had had their original windows replaced with white uPVC windows. In the 21st century, their popularity continues to rise even in the face of stiff competition from coloured windows and aluminium alternatives.

At Majestic Designs, white uPVC windows are still our best selling product. They provide a fresh and clean look to any home and are available in almost any size, shape, and style. uPVC is a low maintenance and extremely durable material making it popular with today’s hectic lifestyles. White remains the popular colour choice as it will suit almost any property. It goes with anything and can be neutral while creating a modern and striking look to your home’s exterior.

The rise of coloured windows

Even though white uPVC windows remain the most popular choice for UK homeowners, coloured windows have seen a steady rise in popularity in recent years. With modern technology creating durable coloured foils, you can now colour your windows without increasing maintenance costs. Homeowners can now enjoy uPVC windows finished in authentic woodgrain effects or a range of bold and vivid colours.

Another popular choice are dual coloured windows. Dual coloured windows give the homeowner the ability to create a coloured window exterior with a neutral white interior or vice versa. Dual coloured windows offer the best of both worlds, increasing the options of customisation.

At Majestic Designs, we are experts in uPVC. We manufacture all our uPVC windows, doors, and conservatories at our Cheddar factories. Our installation teams have years of industry experience and are all MTC registered and TrustMark and FENSA accredited. If you live in Somerset and you want to replace your windows and doors contact Majestic Designs today. Call us on 01934 741 294 or send us a message online.
