Our long-established and experienced team of knowledgeable experts know how important choosing the best aluminium windows and doors for your home really is; not only in terms of ensuring your chosen materials and style harmonise with the aesthetics of your property, but also purchasing for optimal thermal retention and energy efficiency.
The enduring popularity of aluminium windows and doors
Previously engineered with thick, heavy frames, aluminium became an alternative to traditional timber and more modern uPVC after advancements in technology allowed manufacturers to engineer slimmer frames. This simple advancement enabled a larger pane of glass, and the modern aluminium window was born. While remaining energy efficient, aluminium windows can maximise natural light in your interior spaces and give your property a contemporary flourish. Resilient and robust, aluminium also remains a popular choice of material for use in doors.
Choosing the right supplier
Whether you’re refurbishing your property or starting from scratch, buying from a long-established and trusted manufacturer should be your top priority. While price should be taken into consideration, in a world filled with cowboy installers your final decision should not always come down to price alone.
You could also take recommendations from family and friends, but it’s important to do your own research. Windows and doors are arguably the most important part of a property and are essential for energy efficiency. Windows and doors also keep your interior spaces free from intruders, insects and vermin while allowing for natural light and ventilation. Before agreeing to let a company into your property, be sure to run a few basic checks to ensure they’re up to scratch.
Before signing anything, be sure to check your preferred company uses its own fully employed team of installers. A reliable company will always guarantee a smooth and painless process from consultation to installation, whereas others may subcontract or outsource your installation to a third-party who knows little of your arrangements or specific requirements. Not doing your due diligence can backfire in the long term if the third-party installer is not from a trustworthy company.
Aluminium windows and doors are a sizable financial investment. Be sure to check your chosen company has flexible payment options besides cash and card payment, with finance packages to help with costs. If your company is offering finance packages, then check they are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) for additional consumer protection.
When maintained correctly, aluminium windows and doors have a life expectancy of 30 to 40 years but can often last even longer. Needless to say, if anything does go wrong then you should be able to get repairs or replacement windows at no additional cost to you under your guarantee. An established manufacturer should offer a 10-year guarantee minimum. The length of your guarantee may vary from company to company, but make sure you always read the small print as there may be exceptions you will not be covered for.
Perhaps most pertinent, ensure your chosen company treats you with the utmost respect. Excellent customer service goes above and beyond and should be of paramount importance to your company. That includes knowledgeable salespeople who listen to you and answer your questions thoroughly. They should not pressure their customers or become impatient. Expect quick communication throughout the process from consultation to installation and of course, exceptional aftercare.
A simple way to check the trustworthiness of a company is to do a quick search online. Trusted and established suppliers will come highly recommended, with reviews on independent sites. Check professional accreditations, and that the company is adhering to health and safety and building regulations.
