UPVC Double Glazed Windows
Double glazing & uPVC replacement windows get their name from the twin pane sealed glass units used in the window frame. The gap within these panes is filled with a vacuum or inert gas for better thermal insulation, helping to keep the heat (or cooling) inside the home.
Double glazing windows also have a wide range of styles from which to choose and can be fitted to a variety of window openings. Popular style choices are casement windows, sash windows and tilt / turn windows, although there are a lot more designs out there.
There is also a choice of material to use when it comes to installing double glazed windows, as they can be made of wood, UPVC or aluminium. These windows are cost efficient, not only because of their ability to save energy, but also because it is not difficult to keep them in a good condition. For example, there is no need to repaint uPVC windows every year.
