When you need replacement windows Plymouth MA, one of your biggest choices will be what type of window frames to invest in. The exterior of your home can face exposure to extreme conditions, so having quality door and window frames are essential.
If your building is older, it’s likely that it has door and window frames made of wood. Wood is vulnerable to moisture and heat, which can sometimes cause insulation issues since wood can expand and shrink. Wood frames can also be difficult to clean, and may even need to be painted periodically.
One of the best modern options available for windows and door replacement is UPVC frames. UPVC stands for unplasticized polyvinyl chloride. It is a stronger and more heat-resistant version of the polymer PVC, such as that used in pipes. UPVC is often preferred to wood window frames due to its superior weather resistance, sound insulation, and versatility. Maintaining it is simple, as it is easy to clean. It’s available in different colors to match your home’s existing aesthetic and is also an economical choice for staying within your budget.
UPVC can also help you minimize your negative impact on the environment.

UPVC can also be much more efficient in keeping your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. This results in a lower need for heating and AC, helping to save energy as well as money on your electric and heating bills. Better yet, combining UPVC frames with energy efficient glass can boost those savings even further.
