Maintaining and Installing UPVC Doors and Windows

UPVC doors and windows are known for their low maintenance requirements, but there are a few simple steps you can take to keep them looking their best:

  1. Clean them regularly: Use a soft cloth or sponge and a mild soap and water solution to clean the surfaces of your UPVC doors and windows. Avoid using abrasive cleaning products or scouring pads, as these can scratch the surface.
  2. Lubricate the moving parts: Use a silicone-based lubricant to lubricate the hinges, handles, and locks of your UPVC doors and windows. This will help them to operate smoothly and prevent them from sticking or becoming difficult to open.
  3. Repair any damage: If you notice any chips, cracks, or scratches on your UPVC doors and windows, repair them as soon as possible to prevent them from getting worse. You can use a UPVC repair kit or a professional repair service to fix the damage.
  4. Protect them from the sun: Direct sunlight can fade the color of your UPVC doors and windows over time. To prevent this, consider installing blinds or curtains to block out the sun’s rays, or use a UV-protective spray on the surfaces of your doors and windows.
  5. Protect them from the elements: To protect your UPVC doors and windows from harsh weather conditions, consider applying a protective coating or wax to the surfaces. This will help to prevent them from becoming damage

The process of installing UPVC doors and windows involves a few key steps:

  1. Measure and order: The first step in the installation process is to measure the opening where the door or window will be installed. This will help you to determine the correct size and style of door or window to order. Make sure to measure accurately and consider any special requirements, such as security or energy efficiency.
  2. Prepare the opening: Once you have the door or window, the next step is to prepare the opening for installation. This may involve removing any old doors or windows, as well as any framing or trim around the opening.
  3. Install the frame: The UPVC frame of the door or window is typically installed first. This involves attaching the frame to the opening using screws or other fasteners, and making sure that it is level and square.
  4. Install the door or window: Once the frame is in place, the door or window can be installed. This may involve attaching the door or window to the frame using screws or other fasteners, and making sure that it is level and properly aligned.
  5. Finish the installation: The final step in the installation process is to finish the door or window. This may involve attaching any hardware, such as handles or locks, and adding any trim or seals to the edges of the door or window. Once the installation is complete, you should test the door or window to make sure it is operating smoothly and properly.
