PVC-u continues to be increasingly more popular and is now one of the most recommended materials for windows, doors and Conservatories, but what about Garden Buildings?

Nordic Garden Buildings are the market leaders in the UK and Europe specialising in free-standing garden buildings constructed from PVC-u

There are many misconceptions about PVC-u, so here are few points to put your mind at ease.


PVC-u manufacturing is constantly evolving, in some people’s eyes, it could look simple, unattractive and even un-stylish BUT things have changed. With the use of clever design and colour, we have focused on offering a choice of buildings that offer style and functionality beyond compare. Whether you desire a contemporary or traditional design, we can ensure your new garden building stays in keeping with your home and garden.

One of the key decisions when considering a new garden buildings will inevitably be the initial cost of purchase, this may influence decisions one way or the other. When it comes to pricing, however, PVC-u is usually the best value material on offer after things like aluminium and timber. This is far from PVC-u’s greatest attraction, but its relative cost effectiveness is certainly a bonus that makes a difference.

Low Maintenance

Another hugely appealing feature of PVC-u is that it is remarkably low maintenance. Aluminium is resilient, but still needs attention every now and then. On the other hand, PVC-u never rots, flakes, rusts or fades. Apart from a quick wipe with a cloth to keep it clean, PVC-u requires virtually no maintenance making it very convenient and time-saving.


PVC-u is also the most durable of the materials available. Aluminium can pick up rust whereas PVC-u is strong, tough and resilient. It is highly unlikely PVC-u will need to be changed and to reinforce this fact, Nordic Garden Buildings offer a 10 year guarantee on our PVC-u double glazing garden buildings.


Due to its resilient and robustness, PVC-u is very reliable, but when it comes to security, our frames are constructed to the utmost hardness making it extremely difficult to break through or damage. All of our buildings are supplied as standard with multipoint locking, the same locking security used around your home.

Insulation/Sound Proofing

Insulation is a fantastic feature of the PVC-u material that surpasses aluminium. PVC-u was created to be a very competent insulator and provides the best heat and energy insulation available. It is a very good insulator compared to the alternative of aluminium and this ability to keep heat in and sound out is largely responsible for its popularity.
