What Type of UPVC Windows
Getting a new set of double-glazed UPVC windows installed is a great way to reduce heat loss, improve security and make your home a more comfortable place to be: not to mention the fact that such a home improvement can add value to your property – but have you thought about what style of UPVC window will suit your home best?
UPVC Casement Windows
Casement windows are characterised by the way in which they open up, which could be likened to how a door swings open and shut;
A popular style, this simple design proves that sometimes, less is more, with a huge number of properties across the country using this kind of window, from traditional homes which pre-date the introduction of double-glazing, to more modern builds;
Regardless of when your property was built, a new set of UPVC casement windows could be just the thing to bring it bang up to date, combining all the benefits of double-glazing with the simple elegance and practicality of the popular casement style.
UPVC Sash Windows
Sash windows are an elegant design which can often be found in period-style properties; whilst these can look beautiful, the originals would often be less than efficient, with draught-causing gaps and rattling frames being the unfortunate trade-off for style.
These days, modern UPVC sash window designs mean that you can have the best of both worlds: classical styling paired with modern, efficient glazing technology;
Unlike traditional sash windows, a modern UPVC sash fits within its frame, meaning that no gaps or draughts will be present: overall, such a set of windows will be much more energy efficient than the designs of old, with smooth, secure operation and a look & feel which will perfectly match your property.
UPVC Reversible Windows
If you are looking for a new concept in UPVC windows in hinckley wide, look no further than a fully reversible set;
This type of design works by swinging the window outwards by 180 degrees, meaning that cleaning is a cinch: just rotate the window, clean, and then revert it back to its original position: no more messing around with ladders or worrying about accessibility issues.
By cleverly rotating outwards, this type of design can be used in areas where an inward-opening design would not be practical: for example, if you have curtains, ornaments, or a set of taps by the window, a more traditional opening design may end up interfering with these fixtures.
This type of design is stylish, practical and, with their ability to lock in two positions for ventilation and ability to be used as a fire escape, these modern wonders could be the perfect UPVC windows for your home.
