  • 2. The Frame is starting to rot

  • This is easy enough to spot and can disrupt the aesthetic on your home. Not only are rotting frames an eyesore, but they can also cause security and functionality issues too. Rotting window frames are an irreversible damage as it starts to actually rot through the material making it very hard to manoeuvre your windows, and their vulnerable state makes it very easy to breach, and any intruder would have no problems breaking into your home. To rectify this issue, the best thing to do is to replace your windows, particularly PCVU Windows as they are less prone to rotting and can potentially last a lifetime with the right care.
