UPVC over wood

UPVC material is fast replacing the traditional materials to make window frames in households. These windows are made from extruded polyester sections. The polyester sections, after a window is carved out of them, are then screwed, welded or bolted together to form a shape of a window. UPVC windows are available in abundance in the UK markets.

They come in various styles, colours and prices so that there is something for every household budget. If you are planning to remodel your house or purchase a new one, you can go for UPVC windows in different styles, such as casement windows, sash windows, or tilt and turn windows. These provide different amounts of sunlight and air to enter into the house, when open.

Earlier UPVC windows had just one simple white-finish look but, with changing times, UPVC doors and window frames come in different textures and finishing styles. The most popular are the wood-like finishing on the UPVC window frames. With appearance of old wood but qualities of UPVC, these windows are excellent replacement windows for your homes.
