Aluminium windows are becoming ever-more popular in the modern home. They’re sturdy, look great, and can last for years if fitted properly. You might be surprised to learn there’s a number of different styles you can choose from, too, so there’s definitely an option available to suit your home.
If you’re looking to give your home a fresh new look, your windows are a great place to start.
1. Sleek style
Modern, minimalist homes have come to the forefront in recent years, and aluminium windows are a great way to get the new look without having to move house. These windows require very little framework and can be designed to fit any home, so you’re sure to find a style to suit you.
What if we told you that aluminium windows are also fantastic insulators? They’re known and loved for retaining heat in the winter and keeping homes cool in the summer. This one-off purchase may just be the best way to save on your energy bills for years to come.
Aluminium windows can last up to 45 years when fitted and maintained properly. When you compare this to the 25-35 year life expectancy of uPVC windows, you’re off to a great start. Aluminium windows don’t expand in the heat and don’t require too much looking after.
4. High security
Aluminium is undoubtedly one of the strongest materials to install in your home. These frames are very unlikely to crack, even when attacked repeatedly, and cannot be cut through like wooden frames can. While all windows now have to be safety-checked, aluminium is one of the best choices thanks to its strength-to-weight ratio.
6. Easy to recycle
We’re all trying to make small changes to live more environmentally-friendly lives. If you’re looking to change your windows to save on energy bills, you’ll also be happy to know that aluminium is 100% recyclable. Aluminium doesn’t lose its characteristics in the process, either, so frames can be recycled again and again without dropping in quality.
6. East to clean
While you might need to re coat or treat timber frames regularly, aluminium only needs a quick wipe down every now and again to keep it looking its best. Frames are powder-coated to keep them looking great for years- just take a damp cloth to them a couple of times each year.
Aluminium frames are not only perfect for private homes, but for commercial projects too. These windows are normally the best choice for high-rise apartment blocks and new developments thanks to their minimalist look, high insulation levels, and versatility.
8. Designed to illuminate your space
Aluminium frames are slimmer than uPVC and wooden alternatives, so they naturally allow more light into your space. If you’re looking for a brighter and warmer living space, this could be the perfect option. They’re also the best for getting the most out of the views from your home!
9. Flexible design
When you choose aluminium frames, the design of your windows is entirely up to you. Choose from a range of outer frames, sashes, cills, and more. You can even browse the RAL colour chart to find the best shade for you.
10. Multiple glass options
There’s a number of glass options available to you when you choose aluminium frames. If you choose to have your windows delivered glazed, you can decide whether to have coloured, obscured, or even self-cleaning glass. All options work very well with aluminium frames.
