In recent years, the Un-plasticized Polyvinyl Chloride (uPVC) windows have gained much popularity and today it is the most preferred material by the double-glazing companies and the consumers. Following are the advantages of uPVC material that have made it more popular than its contemporaries including wood, aluminum, and timber.
The cost factor
Cost is one factor that influences the customer behavior largely, and the uPVC windows score great on the scale of cost-effectiveness. Their installation requires much less monetary resources as compared to the aluminum and timber windows.
One other feature is the low maintenance that makes uPVC windows so popular. This feature of uPVC is in sheer contrast to the timber and woods that require filling, painting, and patchwork in every five years or so, otherwise they do not take much time to rot away. For that matter aluminum is more elastic but not as much as uPVC because it never rots, fades, flakes, or rusts. All it requires a quick wipe with a damp cloth that too occasionally.
uPVC scores good on the durability scale as well, as it never rots, is resilient, and never rusts. It stays as it is for several years, and the consumers get guarantees from the manufacturers’ up to a minimum of ten years. In other words, uPVC windows are a true worth for the money spent.
The uPVC material has a commendable anti-burglary property. It is so tough that it is next to impossible for burglars to damage it and break in. Although aluminum also has this burglarproof quality but uPVC stands a bit ahead of aluminum for this factor.
uPVC window frames are good from the environmental point of view as well. First, they are excellent insulators. They conserve energy, save your money, and reduce the greenhouse gas emissions. uPVC is a recyclable material, the window frames after so many years of usage can be recycled and again used. This way, uPVC is a green product, as it has no harmful effect on the environment.

uPVC window frames are cost-effective, durable, require low maintenance, are secure, and eco friendly. Therefore, it is certainly a better choice to make.
