Everyday new and improved technology is entering the market in a number of different spheres. For decades we used wooden window frames. These usually gave way due to deterioration that was a result of moisture and weather conditions in general. In humid areas especially wooden window frames needed to be replaced more often as the wood absorbed moisture. The introduction of metal window frames didn’t have much aesthetic appeal and somehow did not last long. Besides that metal is a corrosive material and was not very suitable to many weather conditions. The latest in window frames is uPVC, a very durable material that is weather proof and fire retardant. The frames are strong and light in weight.
There are a number of benefits of uPVC windows and using them in your home. Some of these benefits can be summed up in the fact that UPVC is a thermal material. It does not let heat or cool escape. It also has the additional benefit of being sound proof. UPVC windows are very low maintenance and the frames do not require painting or any kind of upkeep. This makes the windows a very cost effective option besides the various other benefits.
When one selects a window for a home you obviously would like to choose something that is durable and long lasting. UPVC is a material that does not rust or rot and it is noncorrosive. Areas that are close to the sea are very prone to salt erosion and this is especially a problem with metal window frames. With uPVC windows there are no such issues as the uPVC material is not affected by salt in the air or water in the atmosphere. Another area of major concern in all homes is security. UPVC windows are designed with high security and have multi point locking facilities.
