Why Should You Choose Aluminium Windows?

Is it time to replace your existing windows? Whatever style or colour you are looking for, it can probably be found in an aluminium frame. Aluminium windows are growing in popularity. They may not be the cheapest choice, but you will save on heating costs, there is no maintenance, and it will be a long time before you need to think about window replacements again. With lightweight frames and more glass, you will be making the most of the incoming light and ensuring you get the best view from your windows. Aluminium windows also provide thermal and acoustic insulation, protecting you from the cold and blocking out traffic noise. They are also the 'green' choice as aluminium is almost 100% recyclable; not that this will be an issue as the frames can last as long as thirty years.

Prevents Heat Loss

Modern aluminium windows come with a Grade A energy rating. This is achieved by the use of a thermal barrier inside the frame which ensures that warm and cold air stays on the appropriate side of the window. This barrier is put in place during construction of the window frame, and special seals are used in the rebate regions to ensure the frame is airtight. There is very little heat loss with an aluminium window, and draughts will be a thing of the past.

Combine this with energy saving double glazing and your home will be warm and cosy while your heating bills will be reduced.

Low Maintenance Costs

The light frames can make aluminium windows look delicate. This is far from the case. Aluminium is remarkably strong and durable in use. Windows are the part of the house most likely to be affected by temperature fluctuations and bad weather. Aluminium windows can withstand wind and rain better than either wood or uPVC and will not be damaged by UV rays.

Your new windows will be practically maintenance free as they are highly resistant to rust and corrosion.

Stylish Choices

Aluminium frames can be used to create many different styles of window. Choose the style that best suits your property. Replace straight-forward sash or casement windows with matching aluminium windows that are in keeping with your home or will blend in if you are not replacing all windows at the same time. For a contemporary house choose elegant and modern sliding windows. Does your house currently have ageing steel windows that let in the drafts and are a security nightmare? Replace them with ultra slim aluminium frames that retain the style while removing the problems. In a house with unusually shaped windows, aluminium frames are the ideal choice as they can be shaped to fit that arched or round window.

Your window frames will be painted according to your requirements. Painting takes place before the frame is assembled and the thermal barrier is put in place. There are over 200 colours available, and you can choose to have the entire frame painted in a single colour or have different colours for the inner and outer faces. Double glazing is standard with the frames but doesn’t have to be plain. From coloured glass to Georgian-style bars and even leaded glass, your home can be as individual as you are.

Aluminium windows are both practical and attractive. There are styles to suit every property, and they are designed to the highest energy saving standards. In addition to their great looks, they will also improve the security of your home with multipoint locking systems as standard. Whatever you are looking for in your new windows, aluminium windows have it covered.
