uPVC Windows, Core Reasons To Invest

The uPVC window sector consists of thousands of suppliers and around 1500 profile manufacturers in the UK alone. This is no coincidence that the demand for uPVC windows is still very high, and more competitive in recent years, good news for the consumer.

uPVC Windows Improve The Look Of Your Home

A critical observation, especially when it comes to the value of your home and the ability to sell it at market or above price. There are many estate agents that will insist that new, attractive double glazing will improve the value or your property. But many outside of the property re-sale sector would suggest, it is more likely to improve your likelihood to sell and is less likely that any potential buyer will try to knock down any asking price.

Example: (2 houses on the same street, one property has uPVC windows, the second does not. Which one is more probable to sell first?).

Either way, it certainly would not harm and selling option.

Of course we can’t ignore that some home owners are proud to how their home looks to the outside, even with no intention to put on the market.

uPVC Windows Improve The Look Of Your Home

The insulation properties of double glazing, certainly will make a different to heating bills, compare to single glass options. The air pocket between the glass, acts to insulate heat, keeping more of the warmth inside.

There could be other options too. Old wooden frames, may not be sealed properly around th frames and cold air could be getting in via the brickwork. Or badly fitted glass within wooden frames, could also be allowing the cold in.

It is also fair to say, that the quality of life, living within a warm home, when it is freezing outside, can be much higher and reduce the likely hood of bad health ailments, such as colds and flu.

As for the time to recoup the total purchase investment against heating bills, well this may take several years according to many studies.

uPVC Windows Keep Unwanted Noise Out

For those living on a busy street, next to a busy road or near a factory, keeping that unwanted noise outside can be life improving benefit. In just the same way, heat is insulated through double glazing, so is loud decibels. Of course it works both ways, so any internal noise (maybe kids shouting or musical instruments), can be kept inside away from the neighbours.

Save You On Re-Painting Costs

This really is where the investment can pay off. Calculate how much it will cost for a tradesman to repaint traditional wooden windows every few years and remove it from the cost of your investment. Remember to include the cost of internal painting also, not just the outside.

uPVC windows do not need to be painted and the quality of them will determine how long they will keep their colour, sometimes for decades, Look at what guarantees come with the profiles.

We all know what happens to wooden glass frames if not painted regularly, in short the wood rots and if luckly will need re-filling, or if left too long, the fames will need to be replaced.

For some, one of these benefits will be enough to improve their home. But when you add up all the benefits, you can really get an understanding to why so many supplier and manufacturers can create jobs and make a living within the UK home development market.
