The Features and Benefits Of uPVC Casement Windows

(3 min read)

Casement double glazed windows have been one of our most popular products in recent years, in this blog post we will look at the main features and benefits of Casement Windows, with examples of our installations, as well as how uPVC windows compare to traditional timber windows.

Key Features – Why Choose uPVC Casement Windows

There are a number of reasons why casement double windows are the UK’s most popular replacement window option in UK, take a look at some of the key features that make them so popular with homeowners:

  • The majority of uPVC Casement Windows on the market today come with double glazing, saving homeowners money on their heating bills and keeping their homes warmer. Some suppliers (like us!) offer triple glazing options for maximum performance.
  • uPVC is an extremely low maintenance material, not only is it durable and robust, but it’s also very easy to clean.
  • uPVC Casement Windows have superior security systems, making them extremely resistant to forced entries, all of our windows come with Yale locking systems, as standard.
  • Our uPVC casement windows come with an industry-leading weather gasket, that eliminates draughts and strong weather.

uPVC Casement Windows vs Traditional Timber Windows

Aesthetics – Many would agree that the look and feel of Traditional Timber Windows is one that can’t be replicated – although, in recent years, Timber Alternative windows have come a long way. In addition to this, there are numerous customisation options available with uPVC casement windows, we’ve found that Rosewood has been one of our most popular colours on new installations in the past year.

Cost – In terms of initial investment, uPVC casement windows will cost you much less, in addition to this, you will make additional savings on your heating bills and maintenance costs. However, timber windows will usually have a longer lifespan than the uPVC alternative if looked after properly.

Maintenance – uPVC is a very low maintenance material, the frames and glass can easily be cleaned with a damp, non-abrasive cloth. Timber windows are generally a lot higher maintenance, with the need for repainting or sanding should the wood crack or bolster.

Insulation – Whilst some traditional timber windows have now improved their energy ratings, as a general rule of thumb, you can expect superior heat and noise insulation with uPVC casement windows.

Added Value – Following the initial large investment, traditional timber windows generally add a larger percentage of value to a home, however, some experts still estimate having uPVC windows installed can raise the value of a property by as much as 2%.

What Is uPVC?

uPVC stands for ‘unplasticised Polyvinyl Chloride’, it’s one of the most popular building materials around tidy, due to being extremely versatile, safe, low maintenance and durable. uPVC isn’t just found in windows and doors, due to its versatility it can be found in fascia’s, weatherboarding, drainage systems and sewage pipes – it’s also completely recyclable.

We used Three Counties to replace our front door and porch. Throughout the process, from design, quote, survey and installation the service and level of communication has been fantastic from all involved. The installation team were great, friendly and courteous, working cleanly and tidying up after themselves. We would have no hesitation using Three Counties again, or recommending their services.

Fantastic service from start to finish. Kept me upto date all the way through the process. Very prompt coming out to measure up and discussing what windows I would like. The install was done professionally by a fab team (James and Josh), cleaned and tidied as they went, friendly team. Would highly recommend

Very happy with Three Counties. That’s the second time we have ordered services from this company and both times it was flawless. Prices are very competitive, customer service very good and workmanship excellent. I trust this company 100% and will be definitely be using them in the future. Paul, gentleman who fitted the door, done an amazing job. There is nothing there that person like myself (with slight touch of OCD) would have an issue with. Highly recommended local company that you can trust.

We used Three Counties to replace 7 windows at our property in February 2022. From the initial quotation, through survey to installation I was extremely impressed with them. The installation was completed by Dan and Cam who I cannot praise highly enough. Their workmanship and attention to detail / finishing was exemplary. They were polite and worked hard / efficiently to complete the job in 1.5 days. They took great care to protect carpets and furnishings whilst working and spent time tidying up, leaving the property very clean. I would not hesitate in strongly recommending this company.

The quote was the price (no hidden extras).The quality of the doors we purchased and the fitting of them was top notch It is nice to find a company that keeps you informed as regards fitting etc at all times We had a problem through no fault of 3 counties and they sorted it efficiently and effectively.We were kept up to date at all times. I have no hesitation in recommending them to anybody thinking of any form of double glazing. This revue would not be complete without a big thankyou to Kate and the fitters.

We are so pleased with our new bi-fold doors supplied and fitted by Three Counties. The job was done professionally and in the time frame provided. Dan and Cam took the upmost care on installation to ensure everything was perfect and they were a pleasure to deal with. Credit to the administration team also who kept us fully informed of the process and schedule. I would highly recommend Three Counties for their workmanship and already have to our friends, who have employed them to do their conservatory
