Top 5 Reasons To Go With uPVC
Selecting the right windows for your home can be a challenging task, especially with the countless options available in New Zealand. However, if you want a modern, innovative, affordable and high-performing option, uPVC windows and doors could be an excellent choice for you. Eco Doors and Windows highlights some of the benefits that these types of windows can give your home!
- uPVC Thermal performance
Most people choose uPVC double glazed windows due to their thermal performance. Much warmer than single glazed or even aluminium and wooden windows, they naturally trap the warm air in and the cold air out during the winter months. Wherever you live in New Zealand, they will withstand all the environmental conditions, be it rain, wind or snow. You won’t feel any gusts of wind when sitting next to your windows and doors ever again. They are also energy-efficient and will reduce your power bills due to their tight sealing.
- Double glazed
All of our uPVC windows and doors come double glazed. The high-performance glass further improves the thermal and sound insulation performance of these types of windows. Double glazed windows not only add value to your property but also create a comfortable home for your whole family. With our uPVC joinery coupled with this type of glass, you will never feel cold or hear the noise from the outside.
- Sound insulation
uPVC is also a natural insulator for noise and has excellent soundproofing qualities. So, whether you live close to the motorway or are tired of listening to your neighbour’s dog barking, uPVC double glazed windows can be a great choice for you. They can reduce noise levels by up to 38dB and will give you the quietness you have always been looking for. If you have got children in your home or love listening to loud music, these windows will also stop you from disturbing your neighbours.
- Low maintenance and built for NZ conditions
If you are tired of constantly repainting your timber window and cleaning your aluminium frames, uPVC windows will give you the low maintenance option that you might have been looking for. You only need to clean your uPVC windows every few months with warm soapy water to remove any dirt and dust that could have gotten onto the surfaces. They are expected to last at least 40 years from installation, and unlike other options, they never rot or warp, even in the New Zealand environment. If you want long-lasting and low maintenance windows and doors in your home, these can be an excellent option for you.
- Great look
With all of their benefits, uPVC windows also offer a great look for your home with their modern and innovative design. So, if you want to improve the outside of your home, they can offer a renewed look with their clean lines. However, if you’re going to keep the character of your house at Eco Doors and Windows, we also have different colour options that look similar to timber and aluminium windows.
