An introduction to aluminium windows and doors
Over recent years, aluminium frames have fast become a preferred double glazing choice for many homeowners up and down the country. Aluminium frames have been used in commercial properties and office windows for many years, before appearing in homes in the early 80s as an alternative to uPVC.
As time has gone on, they’ve become an increasingly popular choice for homes. No longer are they the heavy, thick frames they once were. Nowadays, their lightweight, slimline appearance gives any home’s windows or doors an exceptionally stylish – and hard-wearing – exterior finish.
With window and door style and choice of materials playing a large role in the look and finish of more modern or contemporary homes, aluminium should be seriously considered. Offering home renovation projects or eco-friendly new-build homes the consummate finish any home would be proud of, the sleek and contemporary style of an aluminium finish is a game-changer.
With excellent durability and stability, aluminium is a perfect frame material for windows or doors of any size – even full height, floor to ceiling windows – as well as aluminium patio doors and full-width bi-fold doors that can really open up your home. Using a slimmer frame, both windows and doors can benefit from larger glass panels, allowing your home to be flooded with even more natural light.
Of course, getting the perfect finish you want means doing some homework beforehand to ensure you really do get what you pay for. Not only in terms of looks and functionality, but also in quality, finish, and security.
A final, key action to remember is to choose an installer who is trusted, respected, and qualified to do the job properly with exceptional results.
