uPVC is the most popular material used for windows in homes today. This comes as no surprise with the modern manufacturing processes available, making it possible to replicate a traditional timber appearance whilst remaining maintenance-free. To ensure a quality uPVC window, it is crucial to choose a brand that offers a premium profile.
At Emerald, we realise that it is easy to become confused when trying to compare one product from another in search of the best, which is why we have put together a straightforward blog on the different brands we are proud to offer: Deceuninck’s Heritage Collection, and The Residence Collection.
The Heritage Window Collection consists of three different casement options: Flush Sash, Sculptured Sash and Chamfered Sash. Deceuninck’s product is unique from others in the uPVC market for many reasons:
All three undoubtedly deliver on energy efficiency, security and design, but which one is right for your home?
Sculptured and Chamfered Sash windows feature outward opening sashes which stand proud of the face of the window frame and are the more typical style used in homes today. This is the type that we suggest to our customers first for their window replacement.
For those looking for that added sophistication, we recommend the Flush Sash window. These are designed to replicate the appearance of timber and are distinguished by the sashes that close into the frame and finish flush with the face of the window.
Residence 9 windows are designed to authentically replicate timber designs by incorporating traditional aesthetics. This, combined with the use of modern materials, means R9 windows suit properties from all periods but are most sought after in heritage homes, as they maintain the character appearance of the period.
The profile of Residence 9 is 100mm wide, meaning it will not suit every home and is only an option to those who have the space available to accommodate. However, R9 achieves excellent energy ratings of A+ due to their heat-trapping chambers. Whilst most window frames tend to have 3 or 5 chambers, Residence 9 has 9, resulting in superior thermal, acoustic, strength and security performance. Both 28mm double and 44mm triple glazing can be incorporated and achieve u-values as low as 0.74.
At Emerald, we truly believe that both market-leading collections are unbeatable, and we would not recommend any products other than Deceuninck and Residence to those who want quality uPVC windows.
