Window material

Most residential window replacement sold nowadays are built using either UPVC or aluminium, which is the case at Trent Valley. Both materials are excellent insulators, amongst other things. 

UPVC windows are really affordable, if you’re thinking they’ll be expensive, and one of their biggest attributes is that they offer weather resistance, eliminating any possibility of rotting or corrosion.

Aluminium windows can also ward off the weather, not letting it affect their look, and have the slimmest frames, explaining why they’re dominated by glass.
