While white window frames for homes are still a popular choice, today’s range of energy efficient uPVC windows offer a wide range of colour options and design styles.
uPVC window frames can be supplied as coloured polymer profiles, foiled or laminated with coloured films, factory painted, or clad on the outside with powder-coated aluminium profiles.
Steel received no favour. Aluminium did, but with a rider that it is light and weak, and hence fragile. It can’t be suitable for heavy duty purposes. Eventually majority went in the favour of wood, because wood is strong, can be given any finish and lasts long. With teak or high quality wood, it doesn’t go out of shape against tortures of weather.
For coloured, metal-look or wood-look frames, the most common approach is to use foils or films. Foiled profiles from quality uPVC window suppliers are designed not to chip, warp or rot, delaminate or bubble.
