If you’re unable to decide whether to replace your wooden windows with uPVC, you may rest knowing that you can get uPVC windows that look like wood, also known as “fancy” uPVC windows that allow you to enjoy both the traditional appearance of wooden windows and enhanced performance of uPVC windows. If you’re unsure about replacing wooden windows with uPVC windows, this piece will hopefully clarify why replacing them is a good step to take!

Is it Worth Replacing Wooden Windows with uPVC Windows?

If you’re replacing old wooden windows on a budget or with any other material, uPVC should be your top choice. 

Your home could become safer, more efficient, and more attractive as a result of the long-term investment that you make in new uPVC windows.

Why Should You Replace Wooden Windows with uPVC Windows? 

Generally, wooden windows are more expensive than uPVC windows, and if you have a tight budget then you may find yourself being drawn back. As such, uPVC windows are a great alternative to consider installing in your home. 

Additionally, wood is a very delicate substance, so you must take care to maintain it after installation by painting, staining, or treating it because it is prone to weathering and warping. This only adds to the cost of owning wooden windows.

What Should You Be Aware of When Replacing Wooden Windows with uPVC Windows?

Maintaining them is less costly than their wooden counterpart as they require minimal cleaning. 

More than anything, the visual advantages of timber windows may cause you to prefer them over uPVC windows. However, at Quickslide we can customise the sash windows to feature a woodgrain foil, that offers the design aesthetic of wooden windows.

In terms of costs and advanced performance features such as water ingress test results and built-in insulation, uPVC is the choice to opt for!
