Looking after your uPVC windows & doors.
UPVC windows and doors both benefit from regular inspection and the lubrication of moving parts in the framework. Any metal
parts will operate better if they are lubricated and a mild lubricant followed by an application of light grease will help the metal parts in your windows to be weather resistant.
Regular inspection will also help bring to attention any loose parts that may need to be tightened or replaced before they cause potentially costly damage.

UPVC is extremely cost effective as unlike timber and wooden frames which tend to rot and flake easily, UPVC needs virtually no maintenance apart from the occasional wipe down. It is a strong, tough and resilient material which is very unlikely to need be replaced for at least the first 10 years after installation.
If you are security conscious then UPVC is for you as it is almost impossible to break or damage due to it being made with the utmost hardness. UPVC windows and doors is a most competent insulator, much more so than those windows and doors with wooden frames, preventing the likelihood of homes become draughty... even in Manchester!
MANCHESTER UPVC REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE ADVICE:
Doors that jam or stick, that need a better security locking system or where a ‘knack’ is required to lock them. Where the keys have been lost and a lock change is needed... or doors with ‘floppy’ or tarnishing handles, or with cat flaps that are not needed anymore.
Windows that don’t lock properly or are jammed shut, even ones that are just sticking and difficult to open or close. Windows with handles without keys, that have misted glass through condensation or are draughty.
Other problem areas may include patio doors with faulty rollers or locking systems, patio doors that fall off their runners or close in before they are shut. Don’t buy a new one because Cheaper Glazing can, in most cases, repair them!

It is important when cleaning UPVC windows and doors not to use products that may damage the UPVC. Non-abrasive and non-corrosive cleaning products are the most suitable and one tip that some experts recommend is a soft wet cloth such as a baby wipe. UPVC can scratch easily and even using a dry hard cloth can cause surface marks on the frame. Use warm water and soap to give your frames a soft clean ad they will look well for many years.
