Advantages of uPVC Windows
Practically Zero Maintenance
Total Home only use the most robust of profiles to make our window frames, using a higher grade of quality frame such as Spectus and Deceuninck which ensures our windows are almost maintenance free. Old flaking paint, having to stain your frames every couple of years to protect them, rusting on the frames or hinges, sticking locks and hinges will be a thing of the past. The only thing our windows can’t do is clean themselves.
All our frames and glass are made to measure at our factory; our surveyor visits your home at a time that suits you and will check and double check sizes, openings/openers, glazing etc, this is to ensure the best fit possible, preventing draughts and moisture getting inside. The frame profile has five internal chambers, we place a steel reinforcement box section in one of these chambers to prevent the frame from twisting with heat or age. These chambers help to generate what is known as a thermal barrier which blocks out cold and stops heat loss through the frame or glass.
Safety and Security
Your safety and security really does come first, so we use toughened safety glass where required which is up to 5x stronger than other non toughened glazing options, toughened glass indeed double or triple glazing is important because it meets a worldwide standard of safety against accidental human impact to the highest order. We also glaze all our windows from the inside to prevent the glass being removed from the outside. All Frames are fortified with steel providing the utmost strength to prevent them from being wedged open. We use a definitive grade multipoint locking system with hook locks meaning your casement cannot be popped open.
Fresh and Vibrant Colours
Our windows come in a wide variety of colours to suit your taste and property. Anthracite Grey and Chartwell Green are becoming more and more popular; we’re noticing black, grey and cream replacing traditional colours like white and mahogany. You can also choose to have dual colour too, for example if you would like Black on the exterior you can still have white or cream for the inside. As well as choosing which colour, you can also choose wood grain or smooth finishes.
Handles and Locks
Total Home stock, supply and fit a varied range of handle styles and colours with chrome proving very popular at the moment. Our extensive range of handles, leavers and locks have been designed to be corrosion resistant. The vast majority of our Frames are fitted with Yale handles and locking systems unless specified otherwise.
