PVCu windows for public housing: Cost-effective solutions for local authorities

When it comes to windows for public housing projects, cost-effectiveness and durability are key factors that local authorities consider. PVC windows are a firm favourite with local authorities and offer a range of benefits, such as being highly durable, low maintenance, energy-efficient, as well as being affordable.

Balancing PVCu window cost and quality.

Whether looking to update existing properties, modernise older ones or construct a new development altogether, local authorities must provide comfortable, safe and secure homes for their residents while contending with financial constraints. Striking the right balance between cost-effectiveness without compromising on performance is made even more difficult with changing regulations, the evolving market and the demand for swift implementation. Working with the right PVCu window manufacturer is the key for local authorities to get the best value for money PVCu windows.

Which PVCu windows are best for public housing building projects?

Three styles of PVCu windows are perfect for public housing. Casement windows are the perfect fit for a variety of properties and are available in a range of sizes and styles; reversible windows add a stylish contemporary edge whilst benefitting from a unique 180-degree reversible action; tilt and turn windows have a unique inward opening sash for safe cleaning from within a building. All windows will provide enhanced thermal efficiency, preventing heat loss to save money on heating bills, enhanced security and need little maintenance. At the same time, a range of designs and colour options mean PVCu windows can be finished to almost any specification.

Which windows should be specified for which project?

Local authorities must make sure that the right PVCu windows are specified for the right project. When specifying the right window solution for a high-rise, for example, safety, cleaning and maintenance and weather performance must be considered. Your window manufacturer should know which window style is right for your project.
