When it comes to Unplasticised Poly Vinyl Chloride or UPVC to you and me, as with many things in life, you get what you pay for.
Not to blind you with science or perhaps bore you to tears, when seen under a microscope the higher quality grades of UPVC, are far smoother than lower quality, more porous compounds. The benefits of this include a greater resistance to fading and damage from UV rays.
In commercial terms this means that that the quality of the UPVC used on double glazed windows and doors has a direct impact on life span and interestingly, your frames colour retention.
Renown for its easy maintenance, requiring little more than a quick wipe over with a damp cloth and some washing up liquid, new UPVC can also be colour matched with existing double glazing so that it blends seamlessly in with the style and keeping of your property.
When making any decisions about new UPVC windows and doors, keep in mind that if you want your investment in UPVC to last, it?s worth investing in higher grade materials at the installation stage.
