uPVC Replacement Windows and Doors FAQs

The following three signs indicate that it might be time to replace your doors. Both the front and back doors of your home may be impacted by these issues.

There should be no locked doors in your home that allow the hot summer air or the chilly winter air inside. It could be time to replace your doors if you experience draughts throughout the year.

It may indicate that the seal between your double glazing panes has worn away and is failing to keep moisture out of your home if you can see moisture accumulating in-between the two panes. This may eventually lead to the growth of mildew and/or mould between the glass panes. It’s critical to treat the moisture issue in your home before it gets worse because mould in homes has been connected to health issues like skin rashes, lung issues, and other allergic reactions.

It may be time to replace your door if it is challenging to open and close. A stuck or jammed door is not only very inconvenient, but it can also be a security risk. Poorly functioning doors are less secure and frequently easier to break through. The fact that heat is escaping from your house could also be a sign of something more serious. Your energy expenses will go up as a result. If your door is sticking, you’ll undoubtedly discover gaps where you can see light, either down the sides or at the top or bottom of the door. It’s very likely that hot air is escaping from your home if you can see light through these open holes.

Rating systems for doors’ energy efficiency are based on a scale that goes from A to G. This technique is comparable to the labelling scheme you may have noticed on refrigerators, washers, and cookers. A good level of energy efficiency is indicated by an A rating, and the lowest value is a G. Low-rated doors typically do not meet building regulations requirements. We only install doors that meet or exceed the recommended energy efficiency level. 

Worn out
Your windows should be replaced if you notice any decay, warping, or signs that the double glazing is deteriorating.

It can be challenging to maintain wooden window frames. The problem is that once rot has begun to develop in the wood, it may be quite challenging to stop it and keep on top of it. It can be hard to fix the window so that it still appears attractive and performs its function effectively when it starts to rain. Of course, if you just leave it, the rot will only worsen and make opening and closing the window more difficult.

Poor-quality uPVC windows can distort and become discoloured over time as a result of heat expansion. You may have water leaks, condensation, cracks, chips, holes, and scratches as well as trouble controlling the temperature in your home if your double glazing is malfunctioning.

High energy bills
High energy costs and poor insulation in your home can both be caused by old or inefficient windows. The more heat that can exit your home, the more you’ll need to use your central heating to make up for it. Standing next to your windows and noticing whether it feels cooler there than elsewhere in the room will help you determine this. If the glass feels cold to the touch, you’re probably squandering energy. Inspect the frame for gaps as well.

Because they sometimes have only one glass, older windows are more prone to leakage. To stop heat loss, double glazing with argon gas and low emissivity (LoE) glass is a wise investment.

Windows are hard to open (or impossible)
This is one undeniable argument in favour of replacing a window, mainly because it might serve as a life-saving escape path in an emergency.

There are many causes of a window being difficult to open. A typical one is if the closure has been painted. Although it may have saved time on the decorating, it does nothing to improve the window’s functionality! Warped frames, such as those seen in uPVC windows, which expand and warp in warm weather, are other potential causes of a jammed window. The uPVC shrinks once it cools, but if this keeps happening, the frame might not be the right size for the aperture. Another reason why the window frame no longer fits correctly could be that your home’s foundations have moved. A fresh window will fix the issue in each of these cases.
