uPVC Is Environment-Friendly, Resistant To Rust & Corrosion; Has Multifarious Advantages Over Wood, Aluminium
Windows and doors play an essential role in the general aesthetics of a house as they form an integral part of the home décor, enhance the design of the building, and act as a weather barrier.
Windows and doors were erstwhile considered to be the weak point of the entire building. But now, selecting the right material for the windows and doors of a house is as necessary as any other integral part of the building. Beautiful designer windows and doors can jazz up the ambiance for a relaxing environment.
uPVC is an environment-friendly product that has transformed the windows and doors phase. uPVC doors and windows are resistant to rust and corrosion and thereby, they prevent heat transfer and have noise reduction properties.
The façade and fenestration industry has various choices for windows and doors made up of materials such as wood, aluminium, PVC, and uPVC profiles. However, uPVC has been in demand among house owners and builders because of multifarious advantages over traditional wood and aluminium.
Moreover, unlike metal, uPVC is non-conductive. This means that its usage in doors and window frames contributes significantly to making the internal temperature more consistent for a building. The combination of uPVC window frames with double glazing makes windows highly energyefficient. uPVC profiles are available in distinctive styles, shapes, and sizes. The most important advantage of uPVC profiles over alternative materials is their minimum maintenance and corrosion-resistant feature.
Wood has the inherent characteristic to expand and contract, which ends up in water absorption. However, uPVC does not warp, contract or expand with weather changes.
Additionally, they are double sealed with high-quality EPDM gaskets. It is a significant safety feature that helps in maintaining the temperature of the house. PVC products, on the other hand, have extended durability, and they are also rust-resistant and do not easily succumb to corrosion. This makes the products ideal for coastal properties where corrosion is caused majorly by salt-laden air.
The choice of windows and doors is primarily created as per the current surroundings. The fact that green building committees keep the environment as their priority and recommend the developers, contractors, and architects the same, uPVC materials are an excellent choice over the other counterparts because of their eco-friendly properties.
To top it all, uPVC materials are 100 per cent recyclable, ecologically sound, and lead-free, which also creates a healthy environment in your homes. With the low-maintenance price, high returns, and longer durability, most of the buyers these days are preferring uPVC windows and doors. With the world getting cautious about sustainability and green buildings, uPVC is indeed here to stay.
