The windows you choose to install in your Cardiff property can make a huge difference to the energy efficiency of the home. uPVC windows are highly efficient, trapping heat and preventing loss of thermal energy from your property. Flush casement and tilt and turn windows offer modern PVCU performance with traditional appearances.
uPVC (unplasticised polyvinyl chloride) is an excellent, low-maintenance plastic building material that’s perfect for windows. It has an extremely tight structure, which means that cold air can’t get in and warm air can’t escape. uPVC also resists sunlight, chemicals and oxidisation from water, making it ideal for the exterior of your home as well as interiors.
Unlike older timber window designs, our uPVC windows feature double glazing to offer you superb energy efficiency. This technology helps to trap warm air within your Cardiff property, reducing heat loss and cutting your household bills significantly.
We have a range of uPVC windows to suit any home, from casement and flush sash styles to tilt and turn windows. These uPVC windows can be finished in a wide range of colours and woodgrain foils to give you the look you want. They can also be made to resemble traditional sash windows for homes that require them. This offers you the benefits of modern uPVC windows but with the traditional style and aesthetics you need.
Unlike timber windows that require annual sanding and varnishing, aluminium does not corrode or need repainting. This makes it a durable and long-lasting material that is perfect for your new Carmarthen home improvement.
It is also strong enough to withstand any weather conditions. This means that your double glazed windows in Cardiff will remain looking brand-new for years to come.
Slender aluminium frames allow for larger glazed areas, which can let in more natural light and enhance your view of your property. This can make your Cardiff property feel more spacious and brighten up any living space.
This versatile material is also a greener option than steel or uPVC. Aluminium is recyclable and can be melted down to create different products without losing its quality. This is because it is the most abundant metal on earth and can be refined from ore deposits without depleting them too quickly. This helps reduce the amount of energy needed to manufacture aluminium windows and doors.
A classic design that is still very popular, uPVC sliding sash windows work well in both period and contemporary properties. They provide excellent draught proofing and come with the option of double glazing. They are also easy to clean, just like any other window and door in Cardiff.
A sash window is made up of a timber frame with vertical sliding rails and stiles that hold the panes of glass. It can be opened by a traditional weight and pulley system or modern spiral balances. The bottom of the sash has a narrow wood strip fitted with a draught proofing weatherpile carrier that keeps out air and noise and reduces heat loss.
uPVC sliding sash windows are often single glazed but they can easily be upgraded to double glazing with minimal disruption. They offer high levels of security and ‘A’ rated energy efficiency, making them the perfect choice for older or historic homes that need an upgrade.
As the most popular style of window in Cardiff and South Wales our uPVC casement windows come in a range of configurations to suit any type of property. Their simple and functional design allows for plenty of air to circulate during the summer and keeps warm air in and cold drafts out during the winter.
With a sleek finish and wide choice of colours, glazing options and furniture styles you can create a completely personalised look for your home. Our Accoya wood frames are also renowned for their durability, so you won’t have to worry about your new windows warping or cracking under the pressure of the changing Welsh weather.
The lipped frame of our standard casement windows is perfect for those looking to preserve the traditional aesthetic of their Cardiff home, and they can be further enhanced with decorative glazing bars (muntins) for an authentic Victorian appearance. Alternatively, our flush casement windows are a more contemporary option for modern homes and are available in a variety of finishes including woodgrain foils to suit any aesthetic.windows cardiff
