Aluminium windows are a good choice for many reasons. They are affordable and can be customised according to your preferences. If you’re not convinced about aluminium windows, you need to read this. Here are the top 5 benefits of aluminium windows.
Wood, fibreglass, composite plastic, vinyl, or aluminium?
With so many options available for window and door frames, it can be difficult to decide which is best. However, only aluminium has the following benefits, making it the material of choice for homeowners and businesses alike.
Keep reading to find out exactly why you should install aluminium windows in your home or business.
Aluminium doesn’t split, crack, swell, shrink, or get warped as the weather and humidity levels change, so it will last for many years. It’s also naturally corrosion-resistant, so you don’t have to worry about rust, either.
The durability of aluminium is one of the reasons it was used for door and window frames in the first place, and why it’s still used.
In large part because of the reasons mentioned above, aluminium doesn’t require a lot of maintenance. Compared to wood frames which need to be regularly sealed and painted to protect against water damage, aluminium is something you can install and forget.
While you can certainly leave aluminium as it is when it was installed, you can also paint or anodise it to match your style. Just pick out your favourite colour and your window frames will soon be as fabulous as you.
Another benefit when it comes to design has to do with the amount of light that aluminium windows allow to come through. Because the frames are half as thick as plastic and other frame materials, you get the benefit of bigger windows with more light.
Many people pick aluminium because it’s more affordable than some of the other options on the market. While it’s not the most affordable option, it lasts longer than cheaper materials, so it certainly pays off in the long run.
Plus, as you’ll see in the final point, aluminium windows actually pay for themselves. And they do so much more quickly than any other material on the market today.
Compared to wood and uPVC plastic frame materials, aluminium can reduce heat loss by around 60%. This helps you save tons of money on your monthly energy bills.
Exactly how much you save will depend on a few factors including:
Some people reported saving up to 300% of their monthly bills! That means their windows paid for themselves within a year and continued to put money in their pockets every month.
Where else can you find that big of a return on your investment?
Not all aluminium windows are built the same, so if you want to gain all of these benefits, you need to choose a company that offers high-quality materials with an affordable price tag.
