Many windows that you’ll find are either wood or PVC, but there’s another option. Aluminium windows are a great alternative, but many people view them as lesser. That’s simply no longer the case. These days, aluminium windows are exceptionally useful and a good addition to your home. Let’s take a closer look at some of the benefits.
Aluminium is far lower cost than wood, though it’s still a little more costly than UPVC. However, if you’re looking for value for your money, then aluminium is a better choice, which we will go into more in a moment.
The durability of aluminium windows is unparalleled. Thanks to the fact that this is a metal that does not rust, it can last for a very long time. The wind and rain will not affect it, particularly if the window has been treated with a powder finish to give it a colour.
Rain also does not affect the function of the windows, either, unlike wood. You don’t need to worry about the frame swelling and getting stuck due to moisture.
Available in Any Colour
The powder coat finishes can be done in any colour, so there’s no reason to leave the aluminium a plain, boring aluminium colour. Instead, match it to your home so the window frames show off the colours of the design.
Aluminium has virtually no maintenance needs, apart from cleaning occasionally. This means it’s one of the simplest options for your windows. You shouldn’t need to work on it at all, or even conduct repairs.
Originally, aluminium windows were considered poor for insulation purposes, but there are now new technologies and designs to ensure the frames are thermal friendly and don’t allow heat and cold to pass through. In fact, these windows meet or exceed energy efficiency standards.
Did you know that aluminium is one of the metals that can be recycled over and over again? Your windows may even be made from recycled metal and since it doesn’t lose efficiency or strength in recycling, it is as good as new. In addition, should you ever get rid of your windows, they can be recycled again.
Aluminium windows are a good choice if you’re trying to find a low-cost, highly effective option for your windows. With a sleek sightline, they make your home or business look that much better.
