All Double Glazing Looks Cheap
Double glazing in uPVC, and more latterly PVCu, frames has been the commonplace in homes in the United Kingdom since the 1970’s. While it rapidly gained in popularity, it did have its detractors. One of the main complaints about PVCu double glazing was that the frames just looked like cheap plastic, the frames all looked the same and did not contribute to the aesthetics of a home.
Much of the criticism of “plastic windows” aesthetics had a point. In the beginning, uPVC had a very plain and dull quality to it. It certainly didn’t look as robust, authentic or full of character of more traditional timber window frames and fixtures.
However, a lot has changed over the years and new technologies mean that modern PVCu double glazing gives you control over the style, colour, and even the finish of your new windows.
