Why It Is About UPVC That Makes It So Popular With Homeowners

If you have a good look through our product range online or in our Aberdeen showroom, it won’t escape your notice that we craft the majority of it using UPVC. 

White UPVC Windows

We provide aluminium, timber and composite solutions too, but UPVC products dominate and they do so because of popular demand. 

Unplasticized Polyvinyl Chloride (UPVC) was first invented in 1935, but it wasn’t until the 1980’s that it shot to fame, when window suppliers everywhere started to roll out UPVC double-glazed windows. 

None of the popularity of UPVC has been lost 40 years on. We can’t say we’re surprised by that due to the multiple plus points of the material. 

One of the biggest is how affordable UPVC is compared to materials like hardwood timber. For what they cost, UPVC windows and doors are terrific value for money and always prove worth every penny. 

The toughness of UPVC is also worth speaking about. It’s supremely hard and rarely loses any of its robustness or shape, no matter how much pressure it comes under. The vinyl polymer which binds chlorine atoms to the window or door frame is responsible for much of the immense strength it possesses. 

You’re also guaranteed first-class thermal insulation after getting UPVC windows and doors fitted. They carry a high energy rating to comply with building regulations and reduce heat wastage. If you buy UPVC Extreme windows from Bon Accord, you will receive A+ energy rated windows as standard and can look forward to much cheaper energy bills. 

It isn’t until recent years that UPVC windows and doors have become available in a broader choice of colours, and there’s so many to pick from nowadays – White, Black, Red, Yellow, you name it! There’s also a series of woodgrain effects for UPVC products for those who want a window or door that’s very timber-like. 

You wouldn’t want genuine wooden windows and doors in this day and age. They need constant upkeep, whereas UPVC windows and doors barely need touching, just the odd clean with a wet cloth. 

We have made our Aberdeen showroom Covid-secure and reopened the site if you’d like to see and appreciate a string of UPVC products.
