Aluminium Frames – The Best Choice For This Winter?

This particular winter has been pretty bad for homes and businesses; it has to be said. Snow has settled all over the UK, putting the entire country at a standstill. If this is any indication as to what’s to come, then it’s going to be a cold winter for the next couple of years. For your commercial premises to be protected from the harshness of the winter, people have tried all kinds of different options to stop heat from escaping, but is there a good way to do it?

Aluminium Window Frames – The Way Forward?

For a lot of businesses, the way forward is pretty simple. They choose to work with aluminium frames to protect their building from losing heat through the window frames is to use aluminium. Now, to begin with, let’s take a look at some of the core features of aluminium so that we might gain a better understanding of why it’s so suited to the task at hand.

Aluminium is a very lightweight and durable material, which is why it’s often so well suited to this kind of situation. It’s also quite flexible too, meaning that you can easily bend it and twist it to suit all of the needs and requirements that you might have. This is why aluminium windows are well suited for the Great British weather. Furthermore, aluminium has resistance to both the acidic content found in common rainfall, and also natural rusting through oxidation.

Now if we begin to apply that to window frames, we can easily start to see exactly how and where they’d come into use. The durable and yet lightweight nature means that they’re not going to be all that tricky to try and install, yet they’ll also be durable enough to last you a long time without the need to replace them and get rid of them. As well as this, the resistance to rusting and damage means that there’s less likely to be a spot where the air can leak through and cause issues. This means that there’s no chance of the warm air leaving through the window frames, and there’s also no chance of the cold air getting through the frames, meaning you have a very secure window that will keep heat in and out as required.

Overall, having aluminium frames for your premises is one of the best ways to make sure that the winter wind does not get into your property and lower the temperature. There’s nothing worse than having a problem part of the property where the cold air can leak into the building and waste the heating. Using the aluminium frames will at least help to ensure that you’re not going to be losing out on warm air and that you’re not going to be paying a massive bill for no real reason. They are designed to help you keep as much warm air inside the property as is possible, and this makes them a valued option for businesses who are looking to be as economically efficient as possible.

The Popularity of Aluminium Windows

When it comes to having new windows and doors fitted on a residential home it is important that all needs are met. Whether this is ensuring the colour choice fits perfectly, the design works well with the style and age of the home or simply ensuring that a budget is stuck to it, is important that the choices made are ideal and will remain so well into the future. After all, windows and doors are an investment that needs to last for many years. However, with so many different options currently on the market it can be difficult to know where to begin.

More and more homeowners are choosing to have aluminium windows and doors fitted on their homes – why is this? In recent years there has been a steady increase in the number of people that are choosing to use aluminium over alternative materials, such as wood or plastic, and the popularity of aluminium windows and doors has skyrocketed.

Why Are Aluminium Windows and Doors So Popular?

Until recently many homeowners chose to have uPVC windows fitted on their home as for many years it was thought that this was the best option in terms of keeping the cold out, keeping the heat in and as a long term solution. However, it has now become clear that aluminium windows and aluminium doors have a number of benefits that other types do not have.

  • As a material aluminium is very stable and it does not expand and contract in size when the temperature changes, which is the case with other types. This characteristic makes it a great choice for anyone who has experienced problems with their previous doors and windows warping and bending out of shape; it is this warping that can lead to draughts.
  • Aluminium windows and doors don’t just come in one colour and style. In fact, there are a number of different colours, designs and finishes to choose from. This means there is always a range that works well with existing features of a home, matches inside interiors and looks great with the style of house. For example, owners of a Victorian property are likely to choose classic style windows and doors, whereas those that own a new build or modern home may prefer something a little more chic and stylish.
  • When deciding on the type of windows and doors for a home it is important to consider the effect it will have on the running costs of the property in general. Aluminium is a great insulator and therefore aluminium windows and doors are ideal for energy saving in the home. Simply, better insulation means less heating is required and therefore a lower heating bill.
  • In recent years there has been a focus on recycling and looking after the environment and so many individuals prefer to use materials that can be reused. Aluminium windows and doors can be recycled without losing any of their high quality. So, after being used on a home, it can be used again elsewhere.
  • A lot of homeowners prefer to have windows and doors that work well, but are not bulky and unsightly. Aluminium is really strong and therefore windows and doors can be made a lot thinner and slimline without losing any strength.
  • Often, aluminium windows and doors can be made larger than those made of uPVC or wood and so a lot more light can be let into a home and larger glassed areas are possible.
  • Aluminium windows and doors are extremely easy to clean and so there’s no need for any specific care or frequent maintenance. It’s simply a case of wiping them down whenever necessary.
