10 reasons to choose uPVC flush casement windows over wood
When it’s time to replace your existing windows, it’s important to make the right choice. Here are 10 reasons why you should choose uPVC flush casement windows over timber alternatives.
1. Thermally efficient five chamber profile
At Kingfisher Windows, we use the market leading Profile 22 uPVC system. The profile features a five chamber internal system which stops heat escaping from your home. The thermal efficiency of our uPVC flush casement windows is vastly improved compared to their traditional timber counterparts.
2. Low maintenance finish
uPVC is extremely easy to maintain. You’ll never have to sand down, treat, and re-paint your window frames again. With only an occasional wipe down, uPVC frames will stay looking fresh and as new as the day they were installed.
3. Optional triple glazing
Our uPVC flush casement windows can accommodate triple glazing. Triple glazing can significantly increase a property’s thermal and acoustic performance. With U-values as low as 0.8, you’ll have a warmer home and save money on reduced energy bills.

7. Range of glazing options
Double or triple glazing. Self-cleaning, solar control, or acoustic glass. Georgian windows with astragal bars and a wide variety of leaded and decorative glazing. uPVC windows are the most versatile choice when it comes to glazing.
