It could be that you want an open-plan design that's suitable for hosting those regular family meals, or you have a craving for a conservatory that almost gives you the feeling of being outside.

The short answer is nothing!
Though strictly speaking, the correct terminology is PVC-U
'PVC' stands for Polyviynlchloride and the 'U' refers to it being Un-plasticised. Originally, we would call it UPVC, but this changed in the 1980s to PVCU to fall to ensure consistency with other suppliers and manufacturers across Europe.
Polyvinylchloride is used to manufacture a range of products, not just windows and doors. The substance is commonly used to make bags, shoes and also fake leather.
Pure PVC-U isn't quite suitable as a material for windows and doors. A small quantity of additives are required to provide it with the necessary properties that make it the ideal to use in the production of windows and doors.
The casement referrers to the moving part of the window. Standard windows feature casements which sit proud of the surrounding frame.
In recent years, flush windows have become more and more popular. In these windows, the casements sit completely flush with the frame. This gives the window a neater, more classic look.
The difference between the two window styles is clear when you look at them side-by-side. Why not pop into our showroom to see for yourself?
No, they are not. Standard composite doors are usually 44mm deep, with a foam inner section that makes them strong and secured.
Extreme Solid Core doors are another type of composite doors and these are thicker still (48mm). These doors are made from interlocking layers of laminated layers. This makes them inherently strong and more durable. They are then finished in a hard-wearing UPVC skin.
Of course! Come and visit one of our showrooms where we'll be happy to go through all the different options we can provide. Alongside tiles, we also can provide a range of flat roof membranes.
5 Star provides three keys as standard. We can order more sets - just let us know in advance and we can sort this out for you.
