It’s an age-old saying and even a mantra for some – good things come in threes. The same is true for home improvements. If you’re looking for new windows and doors and have done some research already, you’ve probably encountered the three primary materials to choose from: uPVC, aluminium and timber.
But what are their main differences, and which is right for you? The answer, honestly, will depend on what exactly you’re looking for in your current home improvement project. Of course, our friendly experts are always on-hand to offer advice and any questions you might have, so you’re welcome to give us a call on 0203 667 9707.
Alternatively, if you’re looking to continue your own research and collate some facts yourself, we’ve got you covered. In this guide, we’ve asked our team to put together some of the key features of uPVC, aluminium and timber windows and doors so you can make an informed decision about which one is right for you. When you’re ready, you can get in touch with us for your free online quote.
Look along any street and you’ll likely see classic white uPVC windows. But by the nature of the material and the fabrication process, uPVC windows are highly customisable, so you can choose a bespoke colour and finish that suits your property and helps to express your personality.
We’re all conscious of the safety and security of our loved ones and property. That’s why uPVC windows and doors are a popular choice for peace of mind. uPVC is pretty durable, and these modern windows and doors can be fitted with advanced locking mechanisms, helping to keep potential intruders out.
Nobody likes extra, unnecessary housework. In that regard, uPVC windows and doors are a winner. Easy to maintain, all it takes is a wipe-down with a damp cloth every now and then to keep them looking – and performing – their best.
Here at Chigwell Window Centre, we offer a range of customisable, secure and reliable uPVC window and door profiles that can be tailored to suit you and your project. Get in touch with our team to discuss your new home improvements today.
Aluminium windows are a popular modern choice. Here are just three reasons why.
Aluminium windows and doors are inherently tough and as strong as they look. Plus, they’re surprisingly lightweight – a bonus during installation and for many years to come as you enjoy and operate them easily. Their robustness helps them to stand apart from the rest and give you total peace of mind.
The contemporary style of aluminium windows is distinctive and immediately recognisable. They offer an unmistakable aesthetic that’s highly desirable. If you’re looking for on-trend windows and doors, then aluminium is an excellent choice to boost your home’s curb appeal and catch the eye of passers-by.
Aluminium windows and doors provide ample opportunities for additional thermal breaks, helping to reduce heat loss and therefore save you money on your energy bills. With the cost of living on the rise (and constantly in the news), this is an important factor to be aware of and a standout quality for this material.
We manufacture the highest quality aluminium windows and doors according to your specifications. Talk to our experts today about our on-trend, highly secure and incredibly aesthetic aluminium products for your upcoming home improvements.
While timber windows and doors aren’t something we tend to offer, here are some features to help you make an informed decision and the right investment – whatever it may be.
The classic look and feel of timber windows and doors make them a firm favourite for heritage homes and traditional properties. While this is a look that uPVC can achieve with bespoke colours and finishes, some homeowners might prefer the ‘real’ thing.
If you’re conscious of your carbon footprint and living as ‘green’ a life as possible, then timber windows and doors are a good choice. By their very nature, they’re the more natural choice. It’s worth noting that, similarly, aluminium windows and doors are highly recyclable and a good alternative.
Just like uPVC and aluminium, timber windows can be tailored to fit your home. Most modern windows are available bespoke, so take a look at the choice of colours and finishes and find the right ones for you.
