Why UPVC is better than Aluminium and Wood?


Wooden and aluminium material for windows and doors is an old story now. To give a modern and contemporary look to their homes, most of the people are opting for UPVC doors and windows. They come in different sleek styles and colours and giving your house a classy and modern look. Unplasticized polyvinyl chloride, also known as vinyl, has become the most preferred choice of manufacturers in making different items to increase their life span as the material UPVC is extremely durable and strong.

A new start up double glazing company (Complete Glazing) are running an apprenticeship scheme throughout March to offer children in Birmingham a fantastic career opportunity.

There are a number of reasons why the UPVC material has becomes the best choice for doors and windows over aluminium and wood whether you’re getting them for your home or office. Let’s have a look at some of the reasons of UPVC material being the best choice.

Monsoon & Wind Resistance

UPVC doors and windows have a special resistance mechanism for rain that can deal with the rainy season in the most efficient way. It doesn’t allow the rain water to come inside through the door or window. The doors and windows are reinforced with steel and are multi-chambered so that they could withstand strong winds. As for aluminium door and windows, they cannot withstand wind and rain and can be damaged easily.

Exposure to Sun

UPVC doors and windows are poor conductors of heat and do not let it come in through them. They do not get faded even after getting exposed to the sun excessively whereas aluminium and wooden doors and windows get fade and lose their beauty with excessive sun exposure. Hence, they are required to be painted once a year or so to maintain their look.

Low Maintenance

One of the main reason for the popularity of the UPVC doors and windows is they require very little maintenance as compared to the other materials making them the most cost-efficient. They can easily last around 20 years or more before requiring any sort of maintenance. All you need to do is to clean them occasionally whereas aluminium and wooden doors and windows require constant maintenance. UPVC doors and windows can withstand seasonal changes and provide you with a cleaner and cosy surrounding.

Style to Cater for Everyone

UPVC windows and doors are available easily and can be installed with no difficulty. They come in different sizes as per the requirement of the homeowner. For large windows, one can opt for sliding door windows. Many new designs are coming in the market in UPVC windows and doors giving a distinct yet classy look to your home. Some popular UPVC windows style around the globe include French, coupling, bay, tilt and turn, and many others.

Apart from the above-mentioned reasons, UPVC windows and doors have many other advantages over aluminium and wooden doors and windows. You simply have to get them installed at your place to experience their utility.

What route should you take?

I thought I would set up a blog page on all of the things you need to know about choosing the right career path. I decided to do this as when I left school, I really struggled in terms of ‘what to do now!’ and then I started to panick. I lived next to a kitchen showroom so I thought I could always start working there and make my way up to manager.

But, because I panicked, I got further and further away from any education plans and I started to lose interest in finding something to do. I became more interested in what I was wearing and what I was going to do tonight! So, I definitely needed to change something!


Throughout school, I was one of those people who never had any idea what I wanted to do! I wasn’t one of those people who knew from day one or one of those people who had a passion for something that I loved and wanted to do for the rest of my life. All I kept thinking was… ‘one day, something will come my way and I will do it forever’… but that day never came!


After having left school for a whole year (I called it my well deserved break) I realised that the ‘bank of dad’ wouldn’t always be acceptable to use and I had to get my own money! After all of my friends had already done another year of education or work, I was never able to do the things they did as I had no money of my own!


I started to search for jobs going locally to me and I ended up getting a job in my favourite local pub just down the road from me. I absolutely loved it in their but I knew it wasn’t going to give me the life I desperately wanted!


What I was trying to explain to you in this blog is that, things don’t always go to plan right away, but please don’t make the mistake I did and waste a whole year on worrying about what you’re going to wear to the next party! Don’t just work in the local pub! Aim for the highest and make sure you achieve it, ten fold!


Look out for my future blogs on all types of opportunities and wisdom! Thanks for reading 🙂

What jobs are out there for you?

Looking for a job can be stressful! Not only do you have to know what you want to do, but you must find a company to take you on as well. Once you have finished your education, whether that be school, college, an apprenticeship or university, you must then decided where you want to do. Whether you want to become a tree surgeon and work outside, or you want to work inside and be in more of an office environment.

So, here are some ideas as to what jobs are out there:


    • Gardener – Maybe you are more of an outdoors kind of person and you have a passion for making residential and commercial properties looking beautiful from the outside. Once you have your skills and qualifications to be a professional gardener, you can then apply for a gardening business or set up your own gardening business in Plymouth.

      Knowing all about what flowers go best with others and how to get rid of unwanted weeds in a garden, it all comes with knowledge but also experience.


  • Tree Surgeon – If you like the outdoors and you don’t have a fear of heights, tree surgery could be the job for you. Being outdoors all day isn’t for everybody but a lot of people do like it.
