The Pros of PVC Windows

They’re Energy Efficient
PVC windows are energy efficient because they do not require any type of heating system. This means that they will save money on utility bills. In addition, they also help keep your home cooler during the summer months.
They’re Easy to Install
PVC windows are easy to install. You simply need to cut them to size, remove the old window frame, and then replace it with the new one.
They’re Durable
PVC windows are durable because they are made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC). This material is resistant to weather, insects, and other environmental hazards. It also resists fading and cracking.
They’re Affordable
PVC windows are affordable compared to wood windows. In fact, they cost less than half as much as vinyl windows.
They’re Available in Many Styles
PVC windows come in a variety of styles, ranging from  traditional casement windows to double hung windows. Casement windows  are typically found in older houses because they require more  maintenance. Double hung windows are easier to clean and maintain.

Replacement Windows Northern Ireland

Figuring out where to start when thinking about replacing your windows can be a difficult decision. There are so many different considerations that can affect the price and timescales, that it’s almost impossible to estimate without a home visit. So take it from a trusted window and door supplier with over 30 years experience that, whilst it’s convenient to do a lot of the leg work online, do not accept a quotation as accurate unless the window installer has visited your home and measured up properly!

As a rough estimate, installing double glazing with uPVC frames throughout an average 3 bedroom house in Northern Ireland will cost on average between £3,000 to £5,000, but there are many variables involved such as style, size and type of windows you’re looking for. Triple glazing windows can add around 30% to the cost but is definitely worth your consideration for the long time savings on energy bills.

The type of window frame you choose will have the biggest impact on the cost of your replacement windows Northern Ireland. So to help, we have put together some information below and on the pros and cons of each of the main replacement window options for you to think about.

uPVC windows are generally the lowest cost option but don’t let this fact make you think they are not a great choice for your home. As long as you make sure that your window installer is supplying high-quality uPVC frames, they are energy efficient and easy to maintain with an occasional wipe down being all that’s needed to keep them looking their best.

Timber frames are one of the most costly window refurbishment option but can add value to your home. They can provide a classic look to your home, especially if it is a period property. Timber frames come in either hardwood or softwood but do remember that they also require higher ongoing maintenance than uPVC or aluminium framed windows.

Aluminium frames are again more expensive than uPVC but do provide a long-lasting, durable and sleek looking window frame. They offer good energy efficiency and require less maintenance than timber. Aluminium frames can also be supplied in a range of colours so they remain consistent with the look and style of your home

Whilst you are refurbishing your homes windows, take the opportunity to think about adding extra functionality such as additional security options, or Tilt & Turn windows that open inwards into the room to offer improved ventilation.

Some of the benefits of PVC products:

Strong and lightweight – PVC products are resistant, lightweight, with good mechanical strength and toughness. These are the key technical benefits and the reason for its popularity in building and construction applications.

Easy to install – PVC can be easily cut, shaped, welded and joined on-site, in a variety of styles. PVC’s lightness and ease of handling reduces the difficulty of manual cutting.

Durable – PVC is very resistant to weathering, rotting and corrosion, shock and abrasion. It is, therefore, the preferred choice for many different outdoor products where long life spans are expected. In fact, medium and long-term applications account for some 85 per cent of PVC production in the building and construction sector.

For example, it is estimated that more than 75 per cent of PVC pipes will have a lifetime in excess of 40 years with potential in-service lives of up to 100 years. In other applications such as window profiles and cable insulation, studies indicate that over 60 per cent of them will also have working lives of over 40 years.

Cost-effective – PVC has been a popular material for construction applications for decades due to its physical and technical properties which provide excellent cost-performance advantages. As a material it is very competitive in terms of price, this value is also enhanced by the properties such as its durability, lifespan and low maintenance.

Safe material – PVC is non-toxic. It is a safe material and a socially valuable resource that has been used for more than half a century. It meets all international standards for safety and health for both the products and applications for which it is used.

Fire-resistant – Like all other organic materials used in buildings, including other plastics, wood, textiles etc., PVC products will burn when exposed to a fire. PVC products, however, are self-extinguishing. So in other words, if the ignition source is withdrawn they will stop burning. Because of its high chlorine content, PVC products have great fire safety characteristics. In practical terms, this means that they are difficult to ignite, heat production is comparatively low and they tend to char rather than generate flaming droplets.
