There are many different types and styles of window frame employed by homeowners and companies in Epsom, Banstead and the wider Surrey area. As experts in window replacement and window repairs, we deal with each day in and day out. So on this page we thought we’d run through the traits and characteristics of some of the most commons windows we attend to. But if you require emergency double glazing repairs, give us a call right-away on 0800 046 1757. We also fix up conservatories.
PVC/uPVC – Probably the most popular choice nowadays, PVC and uPVC windows are made of a very hard-wearing plastic which offers fantastic protection from the outside elements and sound when paired with double glazing. They require little maintenance and are especially popular among Epsom clients looking for a window replacement for old, damaged wooden frames. uPVC ` are also relatively straight forward and inexpensive.
Aluminium – Extremely light weight and strong, aluminium is a fantastic material that can support a large expanse of glass despite its relatively slim profile. While old aluminium windows often rusted, new versions are coated to avoid this, making them less likely to be in need of double glazing repairs or window replacement down the line. It’s recommended that Epsom homeowners who opt for aluminium window frames select double glazing, as single glazed aluminium windows aren’t as thermally efficient as their uPVC and wood contemporaries.
Wood – Versatile and attractive, wooden frames have been around for decades. While hardwood frames are more expensive than soft wood ones, they’re a lot more durable and look better than softwood frames, which generally need to be painted for protection. Rarely seen used in conservatories, they are most commonly sighted in traditional or antique properties. We offer both wooden frame window repairs and window replacement to both domestic and commercial clients around Epsom.
