Replacement Windows

Replacement windows – what to consider before you buy them

Replacing or revamping your windows and doors without making any major structural changes can be a comprehensive task. In case of most windows and doors, we practically forget about them after installing, unless they undergo any physical damage. Reduced insulation, cracking, seepage, or termite infestation are some of the tell-tale signs that you might need new windows.

One of the first things that you should do before getting replacement windows is to inspect the old windows and identify the reason for their poor performance. Once that is known, you can choose a replacement window that fits your needs perfectly thereby, avoiding such performance failures.

Here are some things you should keep in mind while purchasing replacement windows.

Choosing the right frame

The right framing material can greatly determine optimal performance, no matter what the style of your windows is. Always opt for materials that require minimal maintenance, provide high strength and stability, are resistant to termites, and immune to rotting or corrosion. uPVC windows come with all these properties and are one of the most popular choices for replacement windows.

All-weather profiles

Different geographical regions experience different weather conditions and one should opt for replacement windows that are designed to withstand extremities. uPVC windows and doors are an ideal fit for any climate.


Energy-efficient doors and windows bring in ample ventilation and thermal comfort, facilitating brighter yet comfortable interiors. One should go for replacement uPVC windows that allow natural light to flow in while providing adequate protection against solar glare and harmful UV rays. Installing replacement windows that are high on energy efficiency will help bring down your cooling and heating costs significantly.

Minimal maintenance needs

Poor maintenance leads to poor performance. Windows and doors made out of traditional materials fall easy prey to rotting and infestations and thus require extensive maintenance. Invest in replacement uPVC windows that are easy to clean, operate and maintain and need little or zero maintenance. uPVC profiles are highly durable and are resistant to dirt, dust, moisture, fungus, and swelling

Aesthetic Appeal

Try to opt for replacement windows that can seamlessly blend with your interior as well as exterior décor. uPVC windows and doors come with a wide range of customization options in terms of colours, textures, and finishes, that can add to the overall visual appeal of your residential or commercial space, without compromising on its high-function.

Find the right glazing option

Depending on your insulation requirements you can choose between double or triple glazed. A double-pane glass comprises two panes, that are separated by a cavity that is typically filled with argon gas, which adds to the insulating properties and curbs the transfer of sound. If you are looking for greater insulation and better soundproofing, you can opt for triple-glazed windows.

Invest in the right brand

This is one of the most important considerations you will have to make when installing new replacement windows. Opt for a brand that provides premium quality uPVC profiles with comprehensive end-to-end pre and post-sale solutions at affordable prices.
