What Are The Benefits Of UPVC Windows And Doors?

Over the decades, the technology and materials used to make windows and doors has changed dramatically. Aluminium or timber windows and doors were commonly used then. Today, we see many windows and doors being replaced with UPVC (unplasticised polyvinyl chloride) ones. 

In this article, we will list the main benefits of UPVC windows and doors from Salop Glass. Keep on reading to find out how they can benefit and add light to your home or business premises.


1) Low-Maintenance

You’ll be glad to hear that windows and doors made from UPVC require very little maintenance. Unlike timber windows, they aren’t prone to warping or rotting. In terms of cleaning windows and doors, it only takes an occasional wipe when needed to keep them looking sparkling clean and attractive all year round. No need to worry about repainting them every year as they are available in a range of bespoke colours. 

2) Durable

Due to the nature of UPVC, the material is long-lasting and hard-wearing in all weather conditions. As we mentioned already, it is resistant to warping and rotting. This means it will hold its original shape and condition for years and years to come. You can look forward to saving money in the long run as you will not have to replace your windows and doors as often as timber or aluminium ones.

3) Energy Efficient

Windows and doors made from UPVC are energy efficient, meaning they will keep your home or business premises nice and warm by preventing heat from escaping, helping you save money on your energy bills and, in time, reducing your carbon footprint.

4) Extra Secure

The security of your home or business premises is crucial. Not only is the main purpose of installing windows and doors to allow access and bring in air and light but also for security reasons. Due to their durability, they can give you all-round peace of mind that entry to your premises is extra secure from intruders.
