Can I fit a new door to an existing uPVC porch?
There is no reason why not but it depends on the frame thickness’. Speak to your local installer for further advice.
What are sash windows?
A FlushSash casement window fits true to its frame to give a beautiful flush appearance. The sash closes level into the outer frame, so it sits in line, rather than protruding from the exterior brickwork of your home like traditional Sash Windows. The result is a clean, modern and stylish appearance.
What are the Benefits of uPVC Windows?
There are a number of ways in which uPVC windows can benefit you and your home. Firstly, uPVC windows are low maintenance. The window frames don’t need painting or sealing which significantly reduces the maintenance required over their lifetime, uPVC windows are easily cleaned with soapy water. A key benefit of uPVC windows is that they don’t rot and are resistant to corrosion, this makes uPVC windows extremely long lasting. Unlike metals, uPVC is non-conductive, so your window frames will not transfer heat and contribute to a more consistent internal temperature for your home. Combining uPVC window frames and double glazing makes for highly energy efficient windows. uPVC windows provide excellent acoustic insulation. Double glazed uPVC windows can cut down noise by as much as 70%. Thanks to their integrated locking systems, uPVC windows provide a high level of security for your home. Most uPVC window locking systems lock at multiple points all around the sash and frame. Compared to aluminium and timber alternatives, uPVC windows are low cost. Prices can vary depending on the quality and features of the windows, but you can expect a much more affordable price by choosing a uPVC window.
Can I use a conservatory all year round?
Yes, a modern conservatory with a UPVC frame offers excellent insulation against cold winter days, meaning that you can use it as a complement to your living space all year round.
How secure is a conservatory?
Even without any added security measures, a quality modern conservatory, is already quite secure. With tough double-glazed windows, window locks and secure external doors with multi-point locking systems, the conservatory should be as secure as the rest of your home. Door, window and movement sensors can be fitted to a conservatory as part of your wider alarm system to provide extra protection for your property.
