When Did uPVC Windows Become Popular

Double glazing itself started to become more and more popular in the 1970’s, starting out with aluminium frames and patio doors. uPVC frames became popular in the 1980’s, with the increase in property prices, they became the cost-effective choice for homes across the country.

uPVC had taken hold of the country due to their adaptability. Simple white bars were used to create the effect of period windows and over time they have been moulded with wood grain to give the overall look of traditional windows but with all the energy efficiency our homes need. As the 90’s and 00’s rolled on, uPVC windows adapted to meet consumers needs. Better security locks and the arrival of white gasket units, which very soon took hold across the land.
