If you think uPVC windows and doors don’t have their share of misconceptions and myths, think again. As a relatively new technology in the market, not many people are aware of its benefits.
To explore the matter further, you might want to hear the truth from horse’s mouth. As a well known uPVC product manufacturer, Oridow has this to say to bust any myths surrounding these products:
1. All uPVC products are same, but their prices vary
Fact: One myth is that all uPVC products are the same, featuring same construction and quality while greatly varying in prices. In truth, it comes down to the product quality; the more durable your product, the more costly it will be.
To think that all manufacturers could maintain the same quality for their uPVC products at the same price is far from true. Manufacturing process such as fabrication, material, length, width and thickness, all play a part in deciding the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) for the final product.
2. All uPVC windows and doors come in different colors
Fact: If your supplier claims that they will provide you colored uPVC doors and windows, they are not being honest with you. In fact, all uPVC windows and doors are white in color. Since the advancement of manufacturing process, they have evolved over years and are now equipped with an outer layer that can optionally be laminated with various colors.
However, lamination process is not recommended for uPVC windows and doors as it will ruin its natural texture and appearance. Moreover, lamination will also reduce the overall life of your uPVC product.
3. Gaskets of uPVC windows and doors do not last long
Fact: Another myth has it that the gasket of your uPVC door or window will not last long due to extreme weather conditions. In fact, gaskets that are made from rubber are not genuine. So, when exposed to harsh weather and elements, it is likely to malfunction.
To address this issue, you should verify that your fabricator is using Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) for your uPVC door and window. EPDM gaskets provide very high resistance against acids, lubricants, alkaline and different types of oils.
Before installing uPVC windows and doors at your premise, make sure you look for a reputable fabricator such as Oridow.
