How long should uPVC windows last?
UPVC windows typically have a lifespan of around 20 years, but this can vary between 10 to 35 years depending on factors like quality and maintenance. If your uPVC windows were installed approximately two decades ago, it’s important to consider that they may be approaching the end of their expected lifespan.
To determine if replacement or repair is necessary, it is advisable to assess their current condition and seek professional advice, with installers such as Turkington. Well-maintained uPVC windows can last for 20 to 30 years or more, with longevity influenced by factors such as material quality, proper installation and regular upkeep through consistent cleaning and maintenance.
How do I know when my uPVC windows need replacing?
Determining the need for uPVC window replacement depends on factors like hinges with excessive play, sound leakage, insecure locks, draughts and weak handles. Fogged or misted sealed units, single-glazed or older double-glazed windows and mouldy mastic are also signs.
Visible damage, condensation, excessive noise and reduced energy efficiency indicate replacement may be necessary. Consult professionals such as us at Turkington for assessment and guidance if any of these issues arise.
