To ease some of that indecision, we thought we’d introduce you to an excellent option, uPVC casement windows. These windows are a brilliant choice especially if you live in the Bedford area and across the UK. Made from engineered plastic, making it extremely durable and strong.
uPVC is an acronym that stands for Unplasticized Poly Vinyl Chloride, this rigid plastic is used in place of timber and wooden frames. It’s far superior in durability and build quality which allows it to last for up to 25 years, ensuring you won’t have to keep repurchasing and spending large amounts of money on upkeep.

uPVC casement windows are known for it’s robustness and strength, equipped with interlocking brackets that secure the outside of the window when shut and locked. This allows uPVC windows to be very reliable, with it’s steel core these windows are difficult to break into ensuring you feel safe and secure in your home.

uPVC is highly recommended when installing double glazed windows. It is very important you are able to conserve the heat inside your home while resisting the cold from the outside, which single glazing cannot do. Double glazing gives you the opportunity to save a substantial amount of money, this is because double glazing utilises two panes of glass, separated by a layer of argon gas. Argon gas is a poor conductor and stops warm air from leaving, this is a highly effective method to conserve heat. Triple glazing works the same way, it’s advantages are just highlighted even more, with the additional layer of glass triple glazed windows can trap larger amounts of heat.
This method means your home takes less time and money to warm up. Furthermore, double and triple glazed windows omit and reduce sound pollution. It can be troublesome to have loud neighbours and traffic of all hours disturbing your peace and more importantly your sleep. This is why we recommended installing double or triple glazing alongside your uPVC casement windows. The extra layers of glass subdues the sound outside as it breaks down the sound waves slowing them down in their way. Their noise reduction abilities are enhanced by uPVC frames which lessen noise vibrations through the window unit.
