UPVC stands for unplasticised polyvinyl chloride – sometimes known as rigid PVC because it doesn’t flex. It’s a famously safe and stable material; alternative uses for it include dental retainers and sporting mouthguards.

Today around 1 in 5 households in Britain now have one, and they’ve evolved into structures with a far more diverse range of purposes – which goes some way to explaining why it’s becoming so popular to buy conservatories in Blackburn and Darwen.
