uPVC conservatories benefits

November 15th, 2011

When conservatories were first introduced to homes, they were traditionally made of hardwood or aluminium. But now uPVC is a household favourite and has become the market’s leading material.

If you’re thinking of investing in an uPVC conservatory then read on to see the four main benefits that this superb material brings.

Durability
uPVC is known for its versatility and durability. These excellent properties also make it the leading material for new windows, especially double glazing. uPVC is great at withstanding Britain’s interchangeable weather conditions, which is fantastic for a conservatory. Unlike wood, it’ll avoid discolouration and gives you a lasting appeal for many years to come.

Affordability
Out of the main conservatory materials possible, uPVC is by far the cheapest. This makes it affordable for many homes. uPVC is cheaper because it costs less to produce and is very easy to maintain. This is great for you, because you’ll be able to retain heat in your property which will reduce bills, and not have to spend money on repairs. For those who’d prefer to self-build, the costs will also be less with uPVC conservatories.

Practicality
Despite its low costs, uPVC is recognised as a great material for insulation, low maintenance and weather resistance. By having your conservatory built using uPVC you’ll ensure the cold draughts are kept out and heat is retained. This is significantly beneficial in the winter. What’s more, the windows and doors of an uPVC conservatory can be fitted with the latest security mechanisms, including the multipoint locking system. So your home will be protected from intruders and your mind will be at rest.

Flexibility
You don’t just have to use your conservatory as an easy access point to your garden. uPVC conservatories can accommodate any need you have and can be turned into a kitchen or extra living space. This means you can add decoration such as curtains for privacy. uPVC conservatories can be treated any way you wish and add a wealth of value to your home.
