Replacing your windows and doors is a great way to improve the look of your home, which will likely add worth, too. Just like any other home improvement project, you will want to make sure that you’re getting plenty of value for your money, and that’s exactly what you get with Quickslide. 

uPVC is a cost-effective, durable, strong, but lightweight material. It is often considered the perfect solution to replace old windows, such as traditional timber ones, reducing the level of maintenance needed without losing out on aesthetics. uPVC doesn’t mean you can’t have a replicate of your traditional heritage windows. 

At Quickslide, we offer three different uPVC window systems: sliding sash windows, casement windows, and flush casement windows. With a massive range of stock woodgrain foils and a wide selection of heritage features available, we can create a solution that mimics the look of your traditional windows.

As leading manufacturers of the renowned Legacy uPVC sash window, Quickslide’s vertical sliders are capable of maintaining the appearance of timber sliding sash windows, while having a much longer lifespan. We have a wide variety of sash window options available, such as Georgian, Victorian, and Edwardian windows. Each of our double glazed sash window styles is made from the same quality uPVC as our casement windows. Homeowners can receive durable, robust, and traditional looking Victorian sliders that are easy to maintain and capable of lasting for literally decades.

The optional heritage features for our sash windows include run-through horns, a deep bottom rail, and 90-degree mechanical joints, and as of 2024, we also now offer a slim midrail which matches the midrail thickness of real wooden sash windows.

Our sliding sash window design can last longer than timber not only because of their materials, but also because of their sliding mechanism. Here at Quickslide we use a constant force balance system as well as a spring balance system. This system is capable of providing excellent opening and closing performance for much longer than the traditional pulley system found inside wooden sash windows.

Increase Lifespan With Consistent Maintenance

  • Clean uPVC Windows Regularly with Soapy Water
  • Avoid Harsh Cleaning Chemicals
  • Use a Soft, White Cloth to Wipe Down Frames
  • Research Reputable Suppliers Before Purchasing New Windows

uPVC windows usually have a lifespan of roughly 20 years, depending on the quality of craftsmanship, where the windows are situated, and how well you look after them. You can help to get the full lifespan out of your uPVC windows by occasionally wiping down the frame with soapy water. We recommend avoiding any harsh cleaning chemicals and using a white, soft cloth that is not abrasive or coloured, just in case the colour rubs off onto the frame.

To increase the lifespan further, you should always do a bit of research before buying new windows to make sure you’re buying from a reputable supplier. Find out who the supplier is, how long they’ve been in business, and what other people who have used their services have said about them. By doing your research, you’ll gain insight into the level of service and quality you’re going to get.
