What Type of PVC-U Windows Will Best Suit My Home?

PVC-U windows are perfect for the home as they offer enhanced security and performance, without the maintenance requirements of timber or metal frames. The popular choice for UK homeowners, PVC-U windows come in a variety of styles and colours, for tailored solutions for your home. We’ve created a list so that you can decide which style of windows would suit the appearance of your property, whilst providing optimal functionality.


Casement Windows

Casement Windows

PVC-U casement windows are one of the most popular choices in the market as they are highly practical, sleek and versatile. Casement windows come in many formats, but they feature a single-lever latch design that allows for easy opening and closing. They can be installed in any part of the home and will blend into the existing property, making them suitable for both modern and traditional style properties. You can also get PVC-U casement windows in a wide range of colours including authentic wood effect for a more traditional home.


Tilt and Turn Windows

Tilt and turn windows offer a smart window solution, as they can be tilted inwards for efficient access with one handle. These windows also allow for easier maintenance, as they can be turned inwards for safe cleaning and ventilation. Tilt and turn windows are usually modern looking, with slim lines and a clean appearance. Like all PVC-U windows they can be made in a large selection of colours and finishes.


Sash Windows

Sash windows are more of a traditional style window, with the panes sliding vertically. However with modern PVC-U sash windows, the traditional pulleys have been replaced by spiral balances and a tilting mechanism for easier maintenance. Sash windows would be ideal for people living below ground level, as they won’t take up space opening out. These windows can be flush and still carry the classic aesthetic of a traditional sash window, however with advanced performance. If you have a traditional home and would like to retain its character, sash windows are an excellent choice.


Bi-Fold Windows

Bi-Fold Windows

These popular, versatile windows are great for use in a conservatory or orangery because they enable unrestricted, enhanced views and let in a lot of light. Used in both contemporary and traditional homes, bi-fold windows enable you to fully open one side of the room whilst allowing you to retain much needed space inside.


Bay Windows

Wide bay windows are a classic style which provide the appearance of additional space from the inside. Again, bay windows allow for a lot of natural light, for a brighter home, and offer unobstructed views. Bay windows feature two operating windows which can give you the option to get light and ventilation from two directions. From the outside, the windows are set out from the property for a great aesthetic appeal, which is why they can often add value to a property.
