There are several benefits to installing uPVC windows in your Essex home and they are understandably becoming a very popular choice for window replacement as well as in new builds.

Some of the benefits include:

  • Durability
  • Easy maintenance
  • Energy efficiency
  • Variety of styles and colours


Windows made from uPVC are extremely durable and resistant to rusting, flaking and fading so will last for many years, even in our damp Essex climate. For this reason they are well worth the investment and it is no wonder most modern homes opt for uPVC when it comes to windows and doors.

Easy maintenance

PVCu windows are also very easy to maintain. They won’t rust or flake nor do they need painting or special treatment to keep them looking good; usually all that is needed to keep them clean is a wipe with a damp cloth and possibly a gentle detergent every now and then.

With most of us leading very busy lives, not to mention wanting to enjoy what little spare time we have, uPVC windows are the practical choice for modern homeowners.

Energy efficiency

With energy bills constantly rising, making our homes more energy efficient has become a priority for many of us. Double glazing combined with uPVC frames will insulate your home against unnecessary heat loss and are becoming the standard for energy efficiency these days.

Our PVCu windows have low emissivity glass units that cut down on both noise and loss of heat, so are an ideal way to increase the comfort and warmth of your home while simultaneously saving you money on your heating bills.

Variety of styles and colours

UPVC comes in a huge range of colours and styles so it is easy to find one that suits your home perfectly. There are designs to complement both traditional houses and ultra modern ones, and everything in between too. As well as standard white you can also get wood effect windows in, for example, Rosewood or Light Oak, so even those who favour the appearance of timber frames may find themselves swayed.

Another benefit of uPVC’s versatility is that it can be adapted to incorporate a number of other features, such as safety locks for security and peace of mind. Markwell’s uPVC windows are also glazed and beaded from inside for utmost security.
