Save Yourself The Hassle, Invest In UPVC Not Natural Timber

After having brand new home improvements fitted at your property the last thing you want or expect to have to do is maintain them on a frequent basis.

Golden Oak Leaded UPVC Windows

Unfortunately, this is something you will no choice over if you opt to install traditional timber windows or an authentic wooden door. We say that because wood-crafted products demand constant upkeep, otherwise their appearance and performance fast begins to deteriorate.

You won’t have to worry about any sort of maintenance if you instead buy UPVC home improvements as UPVC is a maintenance-free material.

UPVC also has the upper hand on natural timber for several other reasons:


Have you ever felt a UPVC product? If you have then you will be well accustomed with the resilience offered by UPVC.

Any UPVC window or door also comes ready-fitted with a number of secure mechanisms that help keep them firmly fixed shut when locked. Try breaking through them and you will find it immensely difficult, if not impossible.

Hazlemere gives UPVC window buyers the opportunity to have EXTREME window protection if security is a particular concern.

Energy efficient

Low U-values and a high energy rating are a given when purchasing any UPVC product. The energy efficiency provided by UPVC will keep your interior warm throughout the year, even during our coldest seasons.

It will also be far less costly to heat your home compared to what it would cost you to do the same with authentic wooden windows and doors fitted. The drop in energy costs will be very significant and give you money to spend elsewhere.

All UPVC windows at Hazlemere are A+ energy rated as standard.


UPVC has a life expectancy of 20-25 years, whereas the lifespan of a wooden home improvement product is far shorter. You therefore get much greater value for money from UPVC and greater peace of mind in the long-term.

Hazlemere provides a 10 year guarantee with any UPVC purchases.

Varied colours

There’s a broader selection of coloured finishes available with UPVC windows and doors, including everything from a classic cream to a ravishing red.

The colour you choose won’t need retouching in the future as it promises enduring weather-resistance and will cling tight to the frame.
