FAQs

What are the advantages of aluminium windows?

Aluminium window frames are robust, secure and long lasting. Their inherent strength also means they provide a more slimline alternative to many other types of frame, achieving a sleek, authentic appearance.

Are aluminium windows better than PVCu windows?

Aluminium is certainly more robust than PVCu and therefore should last for longer. Whether aluminium windows look better than PVCu windows is down to personal taste!

Can aluminium windows be painted?

Yes, provided you use the correct type of paint. However, we do not recommend painting them as you are unlikely to achieve the same quality of finish as professional powder coating or anodising. Our aluminium windows are available in any RAL colour, so you will able to find the perfect match for your home.

How much do aluminium windows cost?

Aluminium tends to be 30-35% more expensive than PVCu, but cheaper than hardwood frames. While more expensive than PVCu windows, the extra longevity of aluminium frames gives homeowners excellent value for money.

Are aluminium windows energy efficient?

Yes. Modern aluminium windows are very energy efficient. The insulated frames act as a thermal break, keeping the cold out. Some aluminium windows are designed with a double rebate for additional heat retention and draught elimination. Plus, the slimmer frame means that more of your window is glass, which is an excellent insulator.

How long do aluminium windows last?

We expect aluminium window frames to last at least 25 years, possibly up to 50 years, depending on the weather conditions. And an extra benefit of aluminium is that, when you eventually replace your windows, the frames can be recycled.

Do aluminium windows rust?

No, aluminium does not rust, but it can corrode if it is not protected. All our aluminium windows are powder-coated to provide a protective barrier against the elements. For the ultimate in durability, you can also have the frames anodised. This process increases the surface layer of aluminium oxide; a natural barrier against corrosion.

Do aluminium window frames cause condensation?

No, aluminium window frames cause no more condensation than any other type of window frame. Energy efficient double or triple glazing is the best way to reduce internal condensation, along with keeping your home warm and well ventilated.

Can I install aluminium windows on a listed property?

Possibly, yes. Generally speaking, local authorities will require a ‘like for like’ window replacement for a listed property. However, if, for example, your original windows were Crittall steel, then your local authority may be happy for you to replace them with a matching design of aluminium frames.
