Comparison of affordable PVC windows, which should be on your company's offer

categoryThe best value for money

According to the ranking of cheap PVC windows, Decco 71 will be the best choice for you and your company.

In the February comparison of cheap PVC windows, the winner in this category was the Decco 71 profile. In the 70 mm PVC window class, this system – apart from having one of the lowest prices – also offers the best value for money. Are you looking for windows offering good quality at a really low price? Choose Decco 71.

Profiles such as Salamander 76 and Ideal 4000 have also reached the podium.


We divided the number of points gained by the price one has to pay for a whole set, and then – we multiplied it by 10,000 for clarity. The higher the score, the better the value for money.

categoryThe best quality

Of all the profiles in the cheap PVC windows ranking, the Rehau Synego 70 profile offers the best quality.

Rehau Synego 70 is the winner in this category. If you are looking for good quality windows, you should take an interest in this profile. The system’s victory in this category was determined mainly by: the short production time, the full system completeness, and the use of the best quality fittings – Siegenia Titan AF.

Also recognised were the profiles: Schuco CT70 or Salamander 76.

categoryThe lowest price

The cheapest profile in the 70 mm PVC window class is Gealan 8000. If you want windows at a really low price, choose this profile.

However, its lower price is associated with correspondingly lower quality.

If you want to sell good quality windows at a low price, you should also be interested in other profiles that are on the podium. The second place went to the profile with the best value for money – Decco 71. The third place went to Aluplast Ideal 4000.
