Why you should consider Aluminium Windows?
The popularity of aluminium windows across the UK has gone from strength to strength over the past thirty years – and it’s easy to understand why.
Recent developments and technological advances mean that modern aluminium windows are durable, have excellent thermal properties and are very good looking. In many instances, aluminium windows even have the edge over their traditional wood or uPVC counterparts.
What are the advantages of aluminium windows?
One of the biggest advantages of aluminium is that it is incredibly light without compromising product strength, making it the perfect material for use in the construction or renovation of residential and commercial buildings.
Despite being strong, aluminium is also malleable, making it the perfect choice for windows in buildings with unusually-shaped openings or cavities. Aluminium is easily manipulated to fit into most spaces.
Aluminium vs. uPVC
Aluminium is currently enjoying an increased market share across the UK property market, with many developers adopting aluminium windows in new builds instead of uPVC. This trend is mirrored in the domestic extension market where homeowners have seen aluminium used on TV programmes such as Grand Designs.
uPVC profiles are often too large for smaller developments such as flats and studio apartments, whereas slimline aluminium window frames are easily manufactured to any specification. Both architects and homeowners have recognised the value in the slim sightlines offered by aluminium profiles. This offers maximum light as well as a contemporary design feel to the windows and alternative to the ubiquity of upvc profile windows.
Aluminium windows have a 25 year paint guarantee which means they should look as good as new when upvc windows are starting to fade and in need of replacement. The long term value of aluminium windows then becomes apparent.
How long do aluminium windows last?
One of the reasons why so many residential and commercial property owners opt for aluminium windows is because they are incredibly reliable. Modern designs won’t corrode, rust, warp or discolour – even in areas with harsh inclement weather.

A contemporary alternative
Modern buildings require contemporary features, and the growth in popularity of aluminium windows has led to a creative phenomenon among manufacturers. From minimalist, practical designs suited to offices and new-build extensions, to elegant and interesting bespoke shapes adorning homes across the UK, the versatility of the material is perhaps its biggest asset.
