uPVC windows are some of the most commonly used across buildings in the UK. Advertised as long-lasting, stylish, and affordable, they are a popular choice when it comes to windows. But how long do these windows really last?

Typically uPVC windows and doors can last anywhere between 10 and 35 years. However, this depends on the condition you are keeping your windows in and the weather in the area you are living in. For example, if you live in coastal or urban areas you may find that the environment takes more of a toll on your windows than if you did not live in these areas.


How can you make uPVC windows last longer?

Here are a number of ways to make your uPVC windows last longer. Through proper care and maintenance, you will be able to get more value for money out of your windows and they are sure to last longer.

A few things you can start to do to make your windows last longer are:
