What are uPVC windows?

What a great question. People often wonder what are upVC windows and how they are different to normal single glazing. In short, they have more in common with the space age than they do with the ancient artisan trade of single glazing.

uPVC is a plastic building material called unplasticised PolyVinyl Chloride which is hard wearing and provides a clean, crisp finish to your window frames. It also has the added benefit of making the manufacturing process easy to deliver perfectly made to measure window frames for your home.

uPVC windows tends to be the default term used to describe “double glazing ” these days, which is a highly insulated form of glazing designed to reduce heat loss and lower carbon footprints and fuel bills.
