Aluminium Slimline Windows – Why Should You Choose Them?
If you’re in the market for new windows, you’ll be faced with an overwhelming number of options. From different styles and glazing options to security features and much, much more, choosing the right windows for your home or business can seem like a daunting task.
One of the most obvious choices you’ll have to make is the window frame material. You could go for traditional wooden frames, but most opt for either uPVC or aluminium. If you’re struggling to weigh up the pros and cons of aluminium windows, we’re here to do the hard work for you!
The pros and cons
Aluminium windows are still seen as more of a left-field choice, but that perception is changing. They may be pricier than their uPVC counterparts, but when you take a closer look at the advantages they offer, this should come as no surprise. Here’s a roundup of the advantages of aluminium windows.
- Aluminium is extremely durable and strong
- The material won’t rust or fade over time
- It requires no more maintenance than uPVC
- It looks the part and is available in a wider range of colours
- It can be just as efficient as uPVC
- Aluminium windows can feature thinner frames, allowing more light into your home
In fact, the only real downside of aluminium windows is that they’re a little more expensive to buy. But the price differential might not be quite as much as you’d think.
Why choose aluminium over other materials?
Not only are they more durable, aluminium slimline windows are stronger, allow more natural light inside and are more customisable – you can opt for practically any frame colour you can imagine.
To top it all off, they are energy efficient thanks to innovations like polyamide thermal barriers. This is particularly relevant in today’s age of high energy prices – investing in aluminium windows could really help keep your bills under control.
