They’re available in a wide variety of styles and can be painted to match any building. Best of all, uPVC windows are reasonably priced. You can save money on your heating bill by making the switch today.

What Is uPVC?

uPVC is unplasticized, which in this context means it’s more rigid and durable than regular PVC. This makes it an excellent material for use in window frames. uPVC keeps the cold out and the heat in. It’s weatherproof and lasts for decades with no maintenance requirements. Other than occasionally washing it off, you don’t need to do anything at all. Despite this, uPVC is cheaper than most other materials that are used in window frames.

But I Can’t Paint uPVC!

You actually can! While uPVC window frames are too slick for regular paint to stick, you can sand them or brush them with a mild solvent and then use a special uPVC primer. Once they’re treated, you’ll have no problems getting paint to stick. Once painted, your favorite uPVC window frames will add a special touch to your Bury St Edmunds home or workplace.

Can Windows Save Me Money?

It’s important to insulate the outside of your home to limit the spread of thermal energy. Windows are no exception — in fact, you lose about a quarter of the heat from your house out of the windows. uPVC is already an excellent insulator, but there are some other things you should look for in your energy-efficient windows. Look for windows with double glazed glass that reflects heat. Make sure that all reinforcing and spacing bars are made out of materials that don’t conduct heat. Finally, make sure that your windows are filled with a gas like Argon or Krypton. All of these factors reduce the amount of heat that your uPVC windows will let out of your Bury St Edmunds home.
