    Why choose uPVC wood effect windows over real timber windows?

    It’s no wonder uPVC is the nation’s favoured window material. It tends to be the most cost-effective choice, yet still provides the excellent performances you’d expect of a modern replacement window. Our high-performance uPVC is thermally efficient, with Residence 9 windows featuring 9 insulating chambers and Residence 7 windows incorporating 7 chambers. They can even achieve A++ energy ratings, the very best available on the market!

    Many homeowners prefer uPVC wood effect windows due to the low maintenance requirements, only needing an occasional wipe to remove any dirt. There’s no need for the window to be varnished or for wood protection, uPVC is finished in an anti-fade protective coating, so it won’t fade, split or crack over time. Our high-quality uPVC windows will last for at least 35 years, continuing to perform and look like new.

    uPVC is highly robust and has shown its ability to withstand strong forces and harsh weathers. As well as secure internal beading, durable stays and handles, and heavy-duty Kenrick shoot-bolt hinges, we fit our heritage uPVC windows with multipoint locking systems as standard, so they pass strict industry standards and they’re proven to secure your home from common burglary techniques.

    Upgrade to insulating wood effect uPVC windows

    uPVC benefits from a multi-chambered window frame profile, meaning the warmth is preserved through several energy-efficient layers. In the same way, this design keeps the cold outdoor elements from entering the room. Our innovative ECOMax double glazing incorporates two layers of modern glass that surround an argon-gas filled chamber. Along with an industry-leading warm edge spacer bar, these pioneering features work to achieve an optimum indoor temperature.

    An upgrade to your heritage uPVC windows will reduce your energy bills and minimise your home’s carbon footprint. You can even opt for advanced Comfort Glass which combines two highly efficient glazing panels with a built-in laminate layer and a special transparent Low-E coating that stops 56% more internal heat from escaping. A much more effective insulator than triple glazing.
