Is it ok to drill and screw on your uPVC windows and door?

The answer is yes you can however bare in mind that this will create a permanent hole on your bead and frames should you wish to replace or remove your window covering in the future. Remember that your windows is built to last for a long period of time more than the blinds that you are installing therefore you have to think twice (or thrice) when drilling a hole into it

Things to consider before drilling and screwing on to uPVC

  • Do you have the right screw? a particular screw is required to ensure that it will hold for a long period of time, specially with moving parts of the blinds and windows when operating, an ordinary screw in a plastic when it is moved regularly will eventually loosen and fail

  • Do you have the right skills? precision and angled drilling for example to ensure you don't hit vital components of the windows (such as glass, supporting joints and mechanisms) damaged.

  • Understand the internal mechanism of your window/door

  • Check with your manufacturer/supplier if this action will void the warranty of your windows

  • Check with your manufacturer/supplier if the product that you are installing directly to your window is a product that they recommend

  • Check with your blinds/window covering provider if the product that they are supplying will suit what you require and will not void the warranty if not, have this in writing

  • Is DIY drilling and screwing is your best option or should you get a professional to do it for you and ensure that they know what they are doing and understand what you require.
