Aluminium windows have become increasingly popular for domestic projects recently, but why? Traditional PVC windows have been at the forefront of window materials for many years but aluminium windows have made mammoth improvements, and are now on a level playing field. The aluminium frames are equally as efficient but offer additional flexibility when it comes to design.
In this blog post, we will look in more detail at 5 reasons to choose aluminium windows.
1. Maximise View
One of the main selling points for aluminium windows is that it is possible for a slimmer, narrow frame. This is due to the high strength and low density of aluminium. As a result, it allows you to use less material, whilst still achieving the same strength required to hold the glass in place. These slim and narrow frames allow for huge amounts of natural light to enter the room and also bigger glass panes which can be used to maximise the view outside your property, especially when combined with aluminium doors.
It’s no secret that when you’re shopping for windows, security is right at the top of the list. Nobody wants to spend a substantial amount of money upgrading their windows, only to be left with vulnerabilities in their property. Fortunately, aluminium windows offer superior strength, keeping you safe and leaving you with peace of mind.
3. Energy Efficient
Not only can aluminium windows reduce your energy bills, the material they are made from is recyclable which means they also reduce carbon footprints. Aluminium is light and easy to work with, windows made from this material offer extreme levels of wind, water and airtightness. This can result in warmer homes, reducing draughts and lowering your energy bills.
As we have already mentioned in this post, aluminium is known for its robust properties such as high strength and low density. Unlike PVC, aluminium has a long life span which is suitable to withstand extreme weather conditions, without showing signs of wear. As well as extreme weather, aluminium can also withstand UV rays and its shape will not warp in warmer temperatures. To top it off, aluminium windows require little maintenance and only require regular cleaning if you wish to maintain that fresh new look.
5. Customisation and Aesthetics
Unlike PVC, aluminium windows allow a wider scope for customisation. Firstly, aluminium windows can be manufactured to a bespoke window shape, providing you more freedom when designing a new build property. Aluminium can be powder coated, allowing you to choose from a range of RAL colours for decoration. Interestingly, the powder coating method allows you to dual colour window frames to match both the inside and outside of your building décor.
