uPVC has been around since the 1930s but was only used to make window frames half a century later. Today, uPVC windows and doors are a popular choice with homeowners across Berkshire, Surrey, and Hampshire. However, not all uPVC double-glazed windows are manufactured the same or, indeed, are equally attractive.
Older uPVC windows were often aesthetically unappealing and tended to develop discoloured patches on their thick plastic frames. Fortunately, the latest technological developments have led to a far better range of uPVC windows on the market. The products that we use on uPVC window projects in Berkshire are stylish without ever compromising on durability or thermal efficiency. It’s no wonder, then, that so many homeowners opt for the most up-to-date, sleek and elegant uPVC window styles that we install.
Here are just a few of our favourite uPVC window projects in Berkshire that we’d like to showcase for you so that you can see the wide variety of looks we can create.
