Windows and doors are a major part of anybody’s home, and they define the character and look of a property. They let in light and can boost the kerb appeal and value of your home. So, if you are thinking about upgrading your homes windows and doors, it is very important you make the right choice of material for this important purchase.
Aluminium windows and doors have soared in popularity in recent years and it is easy to see why more homeowners are favouring it for both traditional and contemporary homes and window styles. Read our five top reasons to fall in love with aluminium for your windows and doors.
Strong And Light Aluminium Windows And Doors
Many homeowners now want wide openings to enhance the sense of space and light in their homes and aluminium is the best material to get this. Aluminium is lightweight, but super strong, and can be manufactured to very slim profiles to accommodate and support ample glazing and effects.
This allows you to comfortably achieve those all-important open spaces without having to resort to a bulky frame to provide the necessary support. Aluminium bi-folding doors, for instance, can span greater widths than PVCu or timber doors to create a seamless link between indoors and out. The superior strength of aluminium also enables the window frames to withstand the harshest of our weather conditions with no expansion or contraction during extremes of temperature.
Slim Aluminium Window Frames
One of the main benefits of choosing aluminium windows is the ultra-slim, elegant sightlines you can achieve. Those clean, crisp aluminium frames are far slimmer than their PVC-u and timber friends, allowing you to integrate more glass into the frames to let more light into your home and give you the best views of the outside without a clumsy profile spoiling the line of sight.
Stylish Aluminium Windows And Doors
You cannot underestimate the look of windows and doors to improve your home. With their clean, smooth finish, aluminium frames instantly update any property and bring a real sense of luxury and style. Today’s building designs lean towards more glass and less frame and you can only completely achieve this with aluminium, which creates that all-important sleek-looking façade. That’s why it’s the go-to material again and again for architects.
Durable Aluminium Windows
Our windows being virtually maintenance-free, durable and highly corrosion-resistant, aluminium doors and windows maintain their looks for longer, even in harsher environments such as coastal areas or cities. Unlike timber, they will not need painting or staining to keep them looking as good as new. They will not rust or corrode, and they will ever never rot, peel or flake like timber. Think of all the time and money you can save on not having to repaint a house full of windows!
Environmentally Friendly Aluminium Windows
Aluminium is an environmentally sound material because it is fully sustainable and one of the earth’s most abundant materials. It is also 100% recyclable, with recycling only requiring 5% of the initial energy used to create the window in the first place. And in this era of rising energy costs, aluminium is energy efficient as well. The thermally efficient frames benefit from a polyamide thermal break to keep your house warm and achieve impressive U-values, so you lose less heat and save money!
