Why Choose Home Glaze uPVC Windows

Durable and maintenance-free

Our uPVC windows are built to last and are extremely easy to maintain. uPVC is a durable material that will never rot, rust, peel or flake and is also lead-free and fully recyclable. The hinges are easy-clean, so they only need an occasional wipe down using warm, soapy water to stay looking great all year round.

Energy-efficient A-Rated Windows

Our uPVC windows are A+ rated as standard and made-to-measure for a perfect fit. The frame and sash have multi-chamber profiles to prevent heat escaping and Low-E internal glass to reflect heat back in. The gap between the panes is filled with Argon gas to ensure cold air stays out and the separating spacers are coated in a low conduction material to reduce thermal transfer. The double weather-resistant Q-lon seal keeps out rain and draughts. It’s all this that keeps your home warmer, quieter and helps save you money on energy bills.

BSI Standard Security & Quality

With Home Glaze, you can rest assured you’re getting windows that meet the British Standard for security so your home is offered the highest level of protection. We use internal glazing beads, to prevent the glass from being removed from the outside by would-be intruders. Plus, our casement windows are fitted with GrabLock, developed with lock experts Yale and accredited by the official police initiative Secured by Design. If you opt for a sash window, the traditional style fitch lock is secured into a galvanised steel reinforcement for additional rigidity.
