We’re always looking out of windows, but when you’re looking to buy them here’s the things you should be thinking about.
If you were to take a cross-section through a PVC-U window frame, as well as the clever, insulating multi-chambered design and all the strengthening ribs, you’d see the shape of the frame. Broadly speaking these can be grouped into ‘Chamfered’, Sculptured’ and flush profiles. Chamfered profiles are crisp and angular. Sculptured are softer with gentle curves. Flush, as the name suggests are smooth. There is no right or wrong – each shape has been designed to shed the rain and to be easy to keep lean. Maybe your home’s architectural style suits one shape more than the other. Maybe you want to match some existing glazing. Maybe it’s just down to your personal taste.
