New windows can transform your home, and not just how it looks. New uPVC windows help keep your home warmer and more secure, and they’re often easier to maintain. With a wide range of window styles and colours to choose from, any home – traditional or modern – can get the benefits of uPVC windows without compromising on aesthetics.
We offer a wide range of products to suit your budget, needs and preferences
– from shape and style to hardware and colour.
Casement windows are a classic for a reason. Available in a range of styles and with a variety of features to choose from, our standard option is far from basic.
A traditional aesthetic with all the benefits of modern materials, Timberlook Flush Sash uPVC windows give you the best of both worlds.
Typically, windows make up 8% of a home’s external surface – yet they’re responsible for almost 40% of the heat loss.
A-rated, modern uPVC windows reduce the amount of energy lost through glazing and frames, therefore reducing the amount of energy needed to heat your home.
Modern uPVC windows include modern security features – such as multi-point locking – as standard, with the option for enhanced features.
All our models can be manufactured to meet Secured by Design and PAS 24 standards, meaning they can withstand common forced-entry methods.
uPVC is a durable material that doesn’t shrink or warp with changing weather, and it doesn’t need to be treated or painted. Simply wipe with a damp cloth to keep your new uPVC window frames in pristine condition.
All uPVC systems are fully weatherproofed, with weather seals to keep out unpleasant draughts. Plus, upgrading your windows from single- to double-glazed, or double- to triple-glazing, will give you better sound insulation.
All systems are also fully weatherproofed, so you don’t get any unpleasant draughts or problematic water ingress.
PVC is not suitable for window and door frames because it is porous and potentially toxic. It also requires more upkeep as it stains more easily. uPVC is durable, highly energy efficient, rigid and requires less maintenance. It can also be recycled.
The exact lifespan of new uPVC windows varies depending on the quality you choose and how well they’re installed and maintained. However, aluplast uPVC systems will typically last for about 30 years.
Prices vary depending on the specification of the window you choose, but modern uPVC windows tend to be cheaper to install than alternatives such as wood. Get in touch via our website to arrange a detailed quotation.

Yes. If you’re upgrading your windows from single- to double-glazed, or double- to triple-glazed, you’ll notice improved sound insulation. For even better sound insulation, choose acoustic glass. Popular among owners of roadside properties, acoustic glass is made from two pieces of glass laminated together and then used in double glazing.
No. You don’t need to move out while we install your new uPVC windows. All you need to do is clear away blinds and curtains and remove any ornaments from near the windows.
The length of time depends on how many products we are fitting. We’ll let you know how long we expect the process to take when you place an order with us. As a rough guide, we’d expect it to take three days to install new uPVC windows in a standard three-bed semi-detached house.

Usually, if your new uPVC windows have a similar appearance to your home’s original windows, you will not need planning permission. However, if your home is listed or is in a designated area (such as a national park), you should always check with your local planning authority first.
