The Truth About Aluminium Windows
Why is it that many turn their noses up at the idea of aluminium windows? Maybe it’s just that the word ‘aluminium’ doesn’t sound as appealing as heritage oak or timber. However, the truth is that aluminium windows not only look fantastic but also have a range of other benefits over traditional timber frames.
Let’s start with the look, because that’s what most home owners are concerned about. Many are under the misconception that installing aluminium windows will make their property look like an industrial or commercial building.
The truth is that aluminium windows are available in a range of finishes so you can find exactly the right look for your home. For those who prefer timber, aluminium also comes in a wood-grain finish to replicate the traditional oak look of timber frames.
Aluminium is also a popular choice for state-of-the-art contemporary designed buildings and houses that are a mix of traditional and modern features. Aluminium windows are a stunning feature often used in forward thinking design aesthetics.
Aluminium frames take window design to another level. Their versatility, durability and flexibility means they can be designed to practically any specifications you require.
Powder coated finishes give your windows a traditional look without the long standing maintenance issues of timber frames. Anodised frames go a step further in protecting your frames from corrosion. They’ll never rust, they are resistant to extreme weather conditions, they’ll never need repainting and cleaning only involves a quick wipe over with a damp cloth.
It’s not all about aesthetics. You’ll also need to consider the overall thermal performance and energy efficiency of your new windows. Aluminium windows adapt well to varying outside temperatures and have excellent thermal performance, enhanced by double glazing that cuts down on noise pollution and provides a high level of security protection for your home.
Price wise, aluminium windows are very reasonable. They are perfect for the budget conscious buyer who wants quality and durability at an affordable price. Their excellent thermal efficiency will also help reduce your fuel bills, so will also save you money in the long term.
