Will PVCu Double Glazed Windows Turn Yellow Over Time?
It is hard to argue with the popularity of PVCu windows. As well as being sturdy, long lasting and cost-effective, they bring numerous benefits from sound and thermal insulation to being almost completely maintenance-free. That’s one of the keys to their success – they do not need much more a simple wipe with a wet cloth.
If you are interested in having PVCu windows installed in your home, you may have come across some horror stories about how they can become discoloured over time. That’s probably what lead you to look for an answer to the question cited in the headline of this post. Unfortunately, it is not inaccurate information you have come across. Yes, PVCu windows will discolour over time and in many circumstances, will become a very unattractive yellow colour.
Does that mean you should avoid having PVCu windows installed or is there anything you can do to prevent or correct it when this discolouration occurs?
