UPVC Doors & Windows, How They Can Help Your Home?

More and more people, in modern times, are preferring UPVC doors and windows to brighten up their homes and offices. UPVC stands for unplasticized poly vinyl chloride. The material, UPVC, is known for being durable, strong, and resilient. The material has been around for over 50 years now, but the demand of this material has risen tremendously in the past few years owing to the numerous benefits it offers.

The most favoured material among the masses has been wood since many years, but more people are now preferring UPVC as they come in a variety of colours and do not require much of maintenance. UPVC windows and doors can last for good 20 to 25 years at least before you need to replace them whereas wooden doors and windows require constant maintenance as wood often cracks and can be infected by termites.

Read on to know how installing UPVC doors and windows can help us and the society in the longer run. Click here to read how upvc windows and doors are installed.

A Greener Environment

Everyone knows the importance of trees for our planet. Global warming is affecting our climate to a great extent. We can play our part in making our surroundings more eco-friendly by installing UPVC doors and windows in our homes and offices instead of wood material. UPVC is absolutely man-made and there is no use of wood in making them. They restrict the entrance of UV rays through them as they are bad conductors of heat making them the ideal material for the doors and windows of your home or office.

Cost Efficient

What’s better than getting the best-looking doors and windows at the most economical rates? UPVC is cheaper than wood not only when it comes to initial cost but also the maintenance cost is also minimum. In fact, UPVC doors and windows can last for at least 20 years without needing any maintenance whereas, because of termites, woods might get destroyed in a single year.

Diversity Factor

UPVC doors come in a variety of styles and colour to match the entire design and colour scheme of your house. Round, rectangular, arched and many other shapes and designs can be found in UPVC doors and windows.

To sum it up, if you are planning to renovate your home or office while keeping your budget in check, you should opt for UPVC doors and windows. They do not only give your home a classy look but are also responsible for keeping the unwanted dust and heat of the sun outside your place to give you cozy and comfortable environment.

Save your money on repairs of wooden doors and windows, and get the best designs of UPVC doors and windows at much economical rates. You can hire services of a professional interior decor expert to know which colours will be suitable for your home or office and which style of doors and windows you should install.

DIY Decking? No Thanks

Every time we have a job that is required in our household, and when I say “job” I don’t mean the washing up or wiping up the toddlers attempt at eating dinner. I mean a really large DIY job.

A job where you just think that it’s either going to cost you a fortune to have someone come out and do it, or its going to cost you about 6 years of your life to get it finished. Every time my wife and I fall out.
The problem with living in Devon is that any “outside” do it yourself job, has the age old issue of when the weather is good – you just want to piss off down the beach, when its wet weather, well it’s a perfect excuse to not do what you told yourself you definitely were going to do.
So my task was some simple outside decking for our patio.

I thought that a man of my calibre and vast years of bodged DIY jobs could knock up a bit of decking in a matter of a couple of weekends. My loving and loyal wife of many years had doubts right from the start, bless her cotton socks, goddam her negative doubting – I can do this!

All I had to do was order the materials, get my tool box out and off I go. Well I did make a start, I ordered the timber and then…… well ‘erm it kind of sat there for at least 3 weeks with its cellophane completely intact.
It wasn’t until I had a few mates around for the football (an Argyle man through and through), that I even considered getting a local contractor to do the bloody work.

My wife kept saying to me “I know this guy called Kevin and he works for this Plymouth decking company” and obviously they had done a fantastic job of Aunty Deidre’s garden decking at number 26!
Ok, OK so I am a useless and I haven’t achieved anything. So in the end I bit the bullet and I just rang the bloody company up to come and give me a quote, just so I could go back to lovely wifey and tell her that she wouldn’t be going on holiday for the next decade because of how much it cost.
To cut a short story even shorter, Plymouth Quality Decking came around and showed me a way in which they could install my decking for a comfortable price so I said yes. And I must mention them here because credit where credit is due, they did a marvellous job, it was done in a day and I had a happy, not so moany, wife. At least for a short while anyway.
We are now enjoying alfresco dining on our lovely deck so if you need some decking I do recommend them and if you mention me I get a referral bonus as well, wink wink!
