Many people consider uPVC windows to be cheap white windows, but this simply isn’t the case. Modern advancements to uPVC have ensured they’re efficient, secure and attractive. Installing uPVC windows can increase the value of your home when the correct style is used in the right property. Typically, high-value homes or listed properties are better suited to premium aluminium or timber windows. Although at Turkington, we offer our uPVC windows in a variety of styles to suit any property and in a range of colours including wood grain foils. Having uPVC windows installed will help reduce your energy bills whilst increasing the value of your home.

In this blog, we will discuss the many benefits of uPVC windows in Belfast, as well as looking at the best window styles for your property.
