Although the grained foiled finishes are available on the interior as well, customers would generally opt for white UPVC interiors as they are easier to clean and give a much cleaner feel to the home.
The foils can come in a few finishes such as Oak, Mahogany, Rosewood and now in bespoke colours which are new to the market. Colours ranging from Irish oak, rustic cherry and even various shades of grey, reds and blues.
Depending on which sort of finish the customer chooses there will be a different way that you should treat the window frame when cleaning. But the maintenance of the product concerning functioning parts and general rules will stay the same no matter what PVC products are fitted.
The age of the windows may affect the aesthetics also, as customers were having PVC fitted up to 18 years ago. The PVC part of the window and door should still be able to be brought back as good as near to new as possible with the right products.
Although there are a few tips on bringing old windows back to life, it’s important to realise that the performance of the glass wont be anywhere near as effective as the new heat efficient windows and doors being fitted at the moment. There is also the problem of malfunctions on working parts such as handles and locking systems that need maintaining on at least 3 to 6 month periods to provide you with less problems.
First open the windows and you will see a channel revealed where the hinges and locking keeps sit. Use a small brush and loosen the dirt, then take a vacuum cleaner to suck out the loose dirt.
