UPVC, otherwise known as Unplasticized Polyvinyl Chloride, is a low-maintenance building material used as a substitute for painted wood, mostly for window frames and sills when installing double glazing in new buildings, or to replace old single glazed windows that might have seen better days.
uPVC windows are a form of window made from this uPVC material. Their modern and thermally efficient credentials have led to them becoming a popular material for windows – attractive to homeowners because it’s affordable, low-maintenance and a fantastic insulator.
Developments to uPVC mean that windows can look just as warm as wood and come in a range of colours and finishes so they can perfectly match whatever kind of home you have.
