uPVC Windows and Doors


15Mar

Your doors and windows are the gateways to your home, and as such you want to make sure that they look and function as excellently as possible. Unfortunately, there are many homes that are still outfitted with dated, damaged or downright broken doors and windows. If you find yourself dealing with problematic doors or windows in your home, don’t grin and bear it. Instead, consider making the switch to uPVC for the betterment of your home! Visit https://www.horizonwindows.ie/ for the best products at the best prices. 


Are you still not sold on the idea of switching things up? Consider these five incredible benefits to installing uPVC doors and windows in and around your home. 


Maintenance is a Breeze 

Unlike the door and window innovations of the past, uPVC does not require routine maintenance as a part of upkeep. Once they’re installed, the occasional dusting is typically enough to ensure their longevity. All you need is a mild soap and water to keep your uPVC windows and doors clean and pristine! 


Durability is Second to None 

You might be aware of uPVC’s other purposes, such as in water lines and sewer pipes. uPVC has been used in these applications for roughly a century. This wouldn’t be the case if the material wasn’t durable. Not only can uPVC windows and doors withstand 25 years or more before needing replacement, they’re also resistant to corrosion and the damaging effects of UV rays. 


uPVC Stabilizes Internal Temperatures 

Metal windows are heat conductors, meaning that they transfer heat from the sun and temperatures outside. uPVC is non-conductive, however, ensuring a stabilized temperature of the window and door frames. This helps to ensure that the doors and windows do not do anything to impact the temperature you experience inside. 


Insulation Against Noise 

You don’t want to be bothered by the loud noises of the street or your neighborhood when you’re trying to relax on a comfortable afternoon. Fortunately, modern uPVC windows are double-glazed and, for this reason, incredibly insulating against indoor and outdoor noise. With a noise reduction of as much as 70%, nobody will hear you from the inside and you won’t be forced to listen to the noise from outdoors. 


uPVC is Recyclable 

This material can be recycled up to thirty times, making it an incredible resource for any number of projects over a number of years. If you need to replace your uPVC windows or doors for any reason, you can rest assured that they will not be ending up in a landfill. uPVC is recycled for other purposes, and perhaps even other windows or doors, without sacrificing durability and other positive qualities. 


If you’ve been considering switching over to uPVC windows and doors, these reasons above make for a very compelling case.

One of the winning features of uPVC doors and windows is how low-maintenance they are. Generally speaking, these fixtures can withstand twenty-five or more years of use with nothing more than occasional cleanings with water and a mild detergent. While caring for uPVC might seem utterly fool-proof and even at times unnecessary, it helps to know the right way to provide the care that these fixtures need to live their fullest life as a part of your home. 


Tips for Cleaning and Maintaining Your uPVC Doors & Windows

These tips will inform you of the best practices in uPVC door and window care. Keep these tips in mind when it’s time to spring clean your home! 


Avoid Abrasive Cleaning Tools

Literally, all you need to clean uPVC is warm water and a mild soap. Avoid using products and cleaning tools that could damage the material, such as: 

  • Glass cleaner 
  • Metal cleaner 
  • Metal polish 
  • Scouring pads 
  • Bleach 


If the uPVC has any stubborn marks that warm, soapy water will not remove, you can purchase a specialized uPVC cleaner. This cleaner is designed for exactly this purpose and will not damage the material. 


Pay Attention to the Drainage Slots 

On the bottom of your uPVC doors and windows you will see drainage slots. These slots can become filled with debris, as can the inside of the sashes. Make sure to check for and clear these slots of any debris fairly regularly. 


Mind Your Glass 

Of course, glass needs to be cleaned every now and then – or even more often. There are two layers of glass on uPVC windows and doors: the internal glass and the external glass. 


The external glass should be cleaned every couple of months, or more often if it seems to get smudged and dirty frequently. Simply use warm, soapy water (like you use to clean the uPVC) to clean the glass and then follow up with a non-smearing glass cleaner. Don’t use abrasive materials when cleaning the glass. Stick to soft cloths or paper towels. 


Internal glass is cleaned very much in the same way as the external glass, though you may find yourself having to clean it much more often. 


Keep this information in mind when you get your new uPVC door or window installed. By practicing proper care techniques, you can have these fixtures working excellently for your home for decades.
