While uPVC windows have been the long-term product of choice for many homes in the Chester and North Wales areas, we’ve found that quite a few people order them and have them installed without ever really knowing much about the benefits. D&M Home Improvements, also covering Cheshire and Wirral, are local experts who know a thing or two about uPVC windows. In fact, we were surprised ourselves at how many benefits there are!
If you own a home or business in Chester, North Wales or any of the surrounding areas, and if uPVC windows are on your list of possible installations, this page is dedicated to you.
Minimal Maintenance – Unlike timber windows which require regular treatment and repainting, uPVC windows are low-maintenance products which never require extra work. Chester, North Wales, Cheshire and Wirral homeowners will only need some warm water, a small amount of detergent and some cloth to keep their windows well-maintained.
Durability – While many of our customers see uPVC windows are a fairly modern property addition, variations have been used in water mains and sewerage pipework for over a century. This is a testament to how durable uPVC is, as is the fact that so many homes in the area still have the same vinyl windows installed from over 25 years ago.
We know that durability matters to our customers, so we remind them that uPVC windows are as resistant to ultraviolet light as they are to wet and damp weather conditions.
Rot and Corrosion – We're sure there are many properties in Chester, North Wales and the surrounding areas with older timber windows which are rotted or in a state of disrepair. Not only are uPVC windows completely resistant to rotting, but the fixtures and fittings used during manufacture never corrode and will only need replacing if you want to upgrade.
Thermal Properties – Did you know that uPVC windows are non-conductive? This means they can’t transfer heat so, in turn, warmth from your property won’t be drawn outside during the colder winter months. uPVC windows with integrated double or triple glazing are amazingly energy efficient and have the highest ‘R’ values and ‘U’ values.
Tilt-and-Turn Functionality – D&M Home Improvements can install uPVC windows with tilt-and-turn mechanisms which allow for opening in two separate directions. This provides natural cross-ventilation to keep Chester, North Wales, Cheshire and Wirral properties cooler during the summer. When closed, our windows can reduce noise by up to 70%.
Exceptional Security – Today’s modern uPVC windows have advanced multi-locking systems which make them virtually impenetrable. Systems lock at every point around the frame and the sash. We firmly believe that uPVC windows are the best high-security choice for homes and businesses in the Chester area and all surrounding locations including North Wales.
Fully Recyclable – Very few people realise that uPVC can be recycled 10 to 12 times during its lifetime. End-of-life uPVC windows won’t be instantly destined for landfill. Because more and more incentives for uPVC recycling are being planned over the coming years, our customers in Chester, North Wales and the surrounding areas can use uPVC in confidence.
