What’s the most popular colour to use with coloured uPVC windows?

Open up your windows to an endless colour spectrum that reflects your personality.

Going through the replacement process? Remodelling your home? Maybe you’re building anew?

Affordable, efficient and great at achieving a specific look, they’re seen all across the country. Yet, the selection process alone can be a formidable task. After all, just when you thought you nailed the perfect window size, type, and style, you have to face one final choice – the colour.

 

More specifically, the frame of your coloured uPVC windows.

So much so that it can be hard to choose the right colour for your home. Especially when you know you’ll have to live with your choice for years to come.

When white’s not quite right, opt for coloured uPVC windows

Since the 1980s, white uPVC windows have dominated UK homes. Standing for Unplasticised Polyvinyl Chloride, this hard-wearing material is used in construction. The reason is simple. The absence of plasticisers makes it a more rigid vinyl polymer, one that’s more durable, resistant and recyclable. Yet, as with all technologies, uPVC has moved on leaps and bounds over the decades.

 

If you choose coloured uPVC windows, you benefit from no fading, cracking, or peeling.

Now there’s a growing trend for coloured UPVC windows, fuelled partly by popular TV programs like Grand Designs. As such, homeowners can benefit from colours more suited to their taste, with many years of maintenance-free durability.

 

The initial manufacturing method of coloured windows

The extra steps involved in coloured windows mean it’s more expensive than usual.

Much like traditional uPVC, coloured uPVC windows are formed from long chambered sections of uPVC. Known as profiles, these also contain lengths of galvanised metal to add structural strength to the frames. However, in the past, coloured uPVC windows essentially had a few millimetres or layers of paint sprayed onto a white frame. Once numerous layers of lacquers are laid down, they were heat-treated or ‘baked’ and bonded to the surface.

 

Unfortunately, this style of manufacturing is prone to fading. As such, it’s susceptible to elongation when exposed to UV light.

Some manufacturers use this technique to reduce the cost of each unit they make. However, here at Boyland Windows, we tend to steer clear of listing such products in our portfolio. This was because we believe the finish is not as robust or hard-wearing. Despite this, uPVC enhanced your home’s insulation, reduced external noise and eliminated condensation. All whilst helping reduce your energy bills. These were known facts and presented manufacturers with a problem.

 

The newer manufacturing method of coloured windows

Thanks to technological innovations, there is no need to choose style over substance.

Nowadays, coloured uPVC windows are manufactured solid. The coloured windows we supply are manufactured by chemically bonding the colour with the uPVC material. This way, the pigmentation permeates through the uPVC rather than resting on top. This ensures the colour does not fade or discolour and provides a more durable surface with a longer lifespan. Otherwise, coloured foils are baked into the uPVC surface like before. Despite this, noticeable colour fading will still occur over fifteen to thirty years – no matter their durability. Regardless, the extra steps involved in coloured uPVC windows mean it’s a more expensive process than usual.

 

Yet, by replacing your old windows with coloured windows, you benefit from a plethora of benefits.

Firstly – and most obviously – is the colour. uPVC windows can come in many different colours, which all can enhance a certain style. However, the colours aren’t just restricted to the outside. Some also come as dual-coloured windows, meaning homeowners can benefit from the best of both worlds. This increases the customisation options and personality that you can imbue in your household. Plus, due to its refined manufacturing process, uPVC not only improves the aesthetics of your home but is also a fantastic insulator. This makes it ideal for double glazing, as it reduces external noise and eliminates condensation. All whilst helping reduce your energy bills with its effective insulative properties.

 

However, the cost is something to highlight . . .  because it’s SO much cheaper than some alternatives.

If you are considering fitting double glazing or new coloured uPVC windows, you’re in luck. Whilst the size, style and design needs to be taken into account, it’s still far cheaper. For starters, uPVC windows and doors usually cost around 50% less than aluminium and 100% less than timber windows (on a like-for-like basis). Yet, whilst this is great for uPVC alone, it’s worth noting that coloured uPVC windows are more expensive than a like-for-like window. Instead of opting for a traditional white one, coloured uPVC windows will increase the cost by around 15-20%.
