Advantages and disadvantages of plastic windows In comparison with old-style structures in wooden frames, PVC windows win in everything: durability; aesthetics; tightness; ease of use; parameters of thermal protection and sound insulation; no need for care and insulation.
Which package is installed on the window largely depends on the seat on the frame, especially on one characteristic - the depth of the package. In good windows, the outer glass should be at least 15 mm from the front edge of the frame, which are overlapped by the profile rebate. For a mounting depth of the frame of 50 -70 mm, the seat of the double-glazed window ensures this distance is at least 18 mm. Few people pay attention to this parameter when buying, concentrating on the number of cameras and the width of the frame, but for heat-shielding properties it is very important - the smaller the seating depth, the faster the glass will start to freeze and mist.
To reinforce the plastic profile, special steel inserts are used, which are mounted directly into the main chamber of the PVC profile. The thickness of steel reinforcement in translucent PVC structures according to GOST should not be less than 1.5 mm.
Disadvantages and the issue of environmental friendliness The frames of plastic windows have one significant drawback - non-repairability. Scratches, scuffs and other surface damage cannot be repaired on plastic. However, plastic is much harder than wood, and it is more difficult to scratch it during operation.

If a company offers a mega-durable functional window from a thick branded profile frombloody "ridiculous" price (and with 100% prepayment of work) - at least you should be wary.
Why plastic windows are better Hermetic design prevents heat loss, which is especially important in houses with insufficient heating system capacity and apartments in which heating appliances are equipped with meters and temperature controllers.
Often the profile is additionally reinforced from the inside for strength, and this is the right move. If the profile is not reinforced, it will fall apart under its own weight much sooner, and you will have to suddenly buy a new window.
What does a plastic window consist of? Profile is the main element of a window block. Its purpose is to combine other components into a whole structure.
Modern wooden windows are equipped with durable "warm" double-glazed windows, they look aesthetically pleasing, but have a couple of significant drawbacks: high price and the need to update the coating.
