We can hand paint the white windows to give it a very specific colour. Works best for smaller orders where a specific colour needs to be matched (like for Body Corporates). The paint used was specifically developed for uPVC. There are 40,000 colours to choose from.

Then, as the first step, consider better insulation around your house, be it roof/wall/ceiling insulation, single glazed windows, fans and vents, or other causes.
In winter, an average Australian home can lose up to 40% of its heating energy through windows and gain twice more in summer or up to 87% (Source: yourhome.gov.au).
To put this in perspective, it is useful to compare U-values of common window types found in Melbourne today. With windows, the lower the U-value the better window insulates against heat.
Typical single glazed aluminium window with 3mm glass has a U-value of 7.4
Typical single glazed timber window with 3mm glass has a U-value of 5.5
Windows Republic uPVC double glazed window with Low-E glass has a U-value of 1.4
Our double glazed windows are made of energy efficient European type uPVC frames and sashes and double glazed insulated glass units, which consist of two panes of glass, argon gas between the glass panes and Low-E coating.
Two layers of glass create a so-called thermal break and reduce both, percentage of heat from coming in and escaping out. Performance glass such as low emissivity glass (Low-E), coupled with argon gas and warm spacers allow to improve thermal performance of a window even further.
Besides inferior thermal performance, single glazed windows provide little protection against heat, cold, noise, and condensation. They are also made of a dangerous float glass which causes serious injuries when cracked. Windows Republic uses toughened safety glass which will bever harm your family members even if smashed.
Windows Republic double glazed windows will noticeably reduce street noise compared to the conventional single glazed windows. However, for houses facing busy roads, better results can be achieved with Triple Glazed or Acoustic Glass windows
Windows Republic double glazed windows will cost more than single glazed aluminium windows, however the difference in cost will be compensated for through electricity savings. We are also one of the most cost effective companies in Australia and offer a 5% price beat guarantee on other double glazing quotes
