They are extremely durable, high on performance, very easy to maintain, and as a result of these attributes, turn out to be very cost-effective in the long run. Apart from these stand-out functional features, they are also very aesthetically pleasing.
We will go on to look at all the advantages mentioned above, and understand how, even though uPVC windows and doors cost slightly more than traditional materials, the initial cost is more than set-off in the long run.
Extremely low maintenance
One of the highlights of uPVC windows and doors is that they are very easy to maintain compared to traditional materials. Wooden doors and windows, for example, are prone to various problems like termite-infestation, warping and cracking. Aluminium frames are prone to rusting and fading, especially in areas with high humidity. They also do not require expensive varnishes or regular polishing to keep them looking beautiful for years. uPVC windows and doors are also perfectly suited for any type of climate – hot, humid, dry, or cold. Also, uPVC is self-extinguishing, which means it will not allow fire to spread.
During India’s extreme summers, uPVC doors and windows provide excellent heat insulation, which is at least 2.2 times better than aluminium profiles. As a result of this, they can be up to 3 times more effective at maintaining cool temperatures within a building, helping you save up to 30% on AC bills. This is possible because of the use of multi-chambered sections and the availability of multiple glazing options. Enjoy cooler interiors without generating a huge electricity bill. The environmental benefits of uPVC over wood and metal are unmatchable. Due to their ability to conserve energy throughout their lifetime, uPVC windows are tagged as ‘green windows’.
uPVC windows & doors are also waterproof, which means you don’t have to worry about leaks and wet patches even if you live in coastal areas or places that see heavy rain. Humid climate and salt water also do not have any impact on these window and doors. They will not warp, rot or deteriorate under these conditions. Compared to traditional materials, windows and doors built from uPVC also provide much better sound insulation, cutting down external noise by 30 to 40 decibels. They also offer enhanced security, thanks to the provision for multi-point high security locks.
