Modernise your home with Flush Sash uPVC windows

Windows are an extremely vital part of your home – they allow you to look out, and they let daylight in. But, we can be guilty of taking it for granted. Until that is, they start showing so much wear and tear that their maintenance just feels overwhelming. 

There are, of course, many different types of windows on the market today. But, flush sash uPVC windows are becoming particularly popular, thanks to the fact they offer so many benefits that other window frames can’t compete with. So, if your old wooden windows are starting to show their fragility or you simply want to get ahead of the game, flush sash uPVC windows are a great alternative. 

What are Flush Sash uPVC windows?

The abbreviation uPVC stands for unplasticised polyvinyl chloride, a sort of plastic powder which is heated up and then injected into the desired mould. As well as being used to create window frames, uPVC is also commonly used for window sills and doors. Its popularity comes down to the fact that it realistically imitates the look and feel of wood and yet doesn’t have the same ongoing maintenance issues.

A flush sash window is characterised by sashes that finish flush with the external face of the window. This means that when the window is closed, it sits tight within the frame without any overlap. These windows have a sleek, minimalist feel which pairs well with pretty much any style of home – contemporary and traditional.

Durable and eco-friendly frames

Unlike wooden windows, uPVC frames are weatherproof and can last decades. Not having to get them replaced regularly means you will save money and time. In addition, the planet won’t be losing any more materials to produce you a new set of windows after your timber windows warp in the sun and get battered in the rain and wind.

@DGCOS: “The material is incredibly tough, meaning the frames can cope against the most extreme elements and are not affected by rot and corrosion, which is especially advantageous for properties located near the seaside where high salt content can be problematic.”

Top-quality insulation and energy efficiency

As well as uPVC being durable and weather-resistant, the flush sash models are particularly well-known for their insulation properties. That’s because they leave no gaps in the frame for cold air or water to enter. Coupled with insulating double-glazing, they are excellent at retaining heat. This makes it a very energy-efficient solution and one which will save you money on your household utility bills – something that’s on every UK householder’s mind right now.

Safe and secure windows 

Unlike their timber counter-parts which can be prone to break-ins if left to deteriorate, uPVC windows are incredibly sturdy and extremely unlikely to deteriorate. This means your house is less likely to get broken into. 

Better than traditional timber aesthetic

What’s more, uPVC was created so it could mimic the look of genuine timber frames. There is a huge selection of textured woodgrain foil finishes to choose from, as well as colours, from charcoal to grey and ivory. In other words, you get the look of authentic wood, but without the heavy maintenance issues.
