Mark Smith Glazing offers a wide range of high quality and affordable uPVC double glazed windows that are ideal for homes in Edinburgh and throughout Scotland.
Benefits of uPVC windows
We have detailed the many benefits of installing double glazing in your home but it can still be difficult to choose the right type of frame for your home. uPVC is a rigid type of plastic that is ideal for window frames. Choosing the best frame for your home often comes down to personal preference but we have listed some of the benefits of uPVC below:
- Maintenance – unlike wooden frames, uPVC is virtually maintenance free. A regular wipe with warm soapy water will keep them clean.
- Insulation – uPVC provides excellent insulation for your home.
- Cost – uPVC window frames are the most affordable choice.
- Colour – available in several colours including a range of wood grains.
Types of uPVC windows
No matter what style or shape of windows you have in your home, we can provide beautiful new uPVC windows and matching patio doors.
Casement windows are the most versatile and popular style that we install. A casement window has an outwards opening that can be located wherever you wish on the window. A popular choice is having the bottom half of the window fixed whilst the top half opens horizontally. Alternatively you could opt for the whole window pane opening vertically like a door.
Tilt and Turn Windows
With tilt and turn windows the whole pane moves. It can either tilt inwards for ventilation or can be opened like a door inwards. This type of window is often used above ground floor for safety and easiness of cleaning.
Sash windows, also known as Vertical Sliders, are most popular as replacement windows on traditional buildings such as Edinburgh tenements. This is because they fit in with the overall look of the buildings, creating the desired aesthetic finish.
