You may be able to choose between uPVC window frames and timber frames
At Listed Window Refurbishment, we aim to give you the best standard of service at all times. This is a big factor in why offer timber frame windows and uPVC window frames.

Of course, not all of the customers we serve can choose from our full range of window products. Depending on the nature of your property or the area your home is in, there may be regulations regarding what frames you can have installed at your property.

These are some of the reasons why adding uPVC window frames to your home is a smart idea.
uPVC window frames are durable
A key reason to opt for uPVC windows is because uPVC is a very durable material. With wood, you run the risk of rot or warping and aluminium, over time, can develop rust. When you opt for uPVC window frames, you receive weather proof and storm proof windows that don’t allow the damp to penetrate through the surface of the frames. You will also find that uPVC window frames are non-corrosive, so rotting or rust isn’t an issue. Add in the fact that these window frames will not let the damp or cold into your home and you a durable window frame you can trust.
uPVC window frames are secure
The most common points of entry to a home during a break-in are the doors and windows. This is why you should look to have secure windows at home and thanks to the robust and resilient nature of uPVC, this is an excellent choice of window. It is true to say that aluminium is probably a more secure option but uPVC window frames are very close with respect to reliability and as uPVC window frames are more affordable, the value for money with regards security is very high.
uPVC window frames insulate your home
One of the most important attributes homeowners want from their windows is insulation. This keeps your home warm and cosy while ensuring you don’t need to spend too much in heating your home. Lowering your energy bills and reducing the amount of energy you use and waste is a big factor in deciding to improve your windows and the insulating qualities of uPVC window frames prevent heat from escaping your home and stops draughts and cold air getting into your property.
Another benefit that comes from the insulating qualities of uPVC window frames comes with blocking external noise from getting in to your home. If you live on or near a busy or noisy road, uPVC window frames can minimise the level of noise that disrupts your home life. This is a common reason people come to Listed Window Refurbishment for support and we’re delighted to say that we have helped many homeowners improve their home life with our windows.
