What is the lifespan of uPVC windows?
With professional installation and proper maintenance, the average lifespan of uPVC windows is around 20 years minimum.
The quality of uPVC frames plays a part in their longevity, a higher quality frame will retain its visual appeal and structure for longer. In addition to this, environmental factors such as the location of your home can affect the lifespan of uPVC windows. Exposure to harsher weather conditions can lead to faster repairs and replacements needed, compared to more mild climates. Finally, if your frames aren’t fitted correctly, they could cause water ingress, which leads to damp and mould issues.
Can uPVC windows be repaired?
Repairing a uPVC window is usually a straightforward, cost-effective process. Many repairs can be carried out by the homeowner, although it’s always a good idea to get advice from a professional installer if you are unsure.
If your uPVC window is stuck, why not have a go at replacing the handle yourself? In addition, you could always opt for convenient hardware such as easy-clean hinges when you choose your uPVC windows, so that later down the line maintenance is hassle free. Speaking of maintenance, lubricating hinges can eliminate stiff movements and ensure that your uPVC windows perform to their best capabilities.
Essential tips for uPVC windows that everyone should know
You only need to clean your uPVC window frames around twice a year, with liquid soap, warm water, and a damp cloth. However, you should avoid using a coloured cloth as dye stains could tarnish the plastic frames.
When cleaning the panes of glass in your uPVC windows with a damp cloth, avoid doing so in direct sunlight otherwise you will be left with a streaky, imperfect finish.
You can use diluted bleach on your uPVC windows to remove tough stains and discolouration.
Look out for condensation on your uPVC windows. If you experience condensation on the inside of the glass, simply reduce moisture levels in your home. On the other hand, if condensation is forming inside of the glazing, your window seal is most likely compromised, and you will need to reseal it for optimum functionality.
