Why Choose Aluminium When Installing Double Glazing?
When choosing new or replacement windows and doors for your home, one of the first things you should look at is the type of material you’re going to use. Aluminium has inherent strength, durability and looks great which often makes it a fantastic choice when installing or replacing your double glazing.
Aluminium to replicate original
If you’re the proud owner of a period property, it’s likely that your original windows and doors were constructed using steel. These windows and doors will likely be underperforming, losing heat and causing a rise in energy bills. Aluminium windows are the perfect replacement for original steel windows as they allow homeowners to maintain the original look whilst offering all the benefits of modern glazed windows.
Aluminium is strong
Aluminium is much stronger than other materials on the market which means the frames can be made slimmer. This allows extra space for glass and therefore allows more light to flood your home. It also means that aluminium windows can support more weight, giving you greater flexibility in design.
Aluminium lasts longer
Aluminium has a longer life span than other materials on the market, and needs very little maintenance. This makes aluminium profiles a fantastic investment for your property.
Lasting colour and environmentally friendly
Aluminium windows can be supplied in single or dual RAL colour polyester powder coated finish which won’t discolour or rust over time. Aluminium can also be recycled which means that it’s far more environmentally friendly when compared to other materials.
