The Rise in Popularity in Aluminium Windows for homes in 2020

Aluminium windows are becoming a very popular choice in the modern home. What was usually a common site in commercial premises have now evolved into becoming quite a frequent occurrence in the domestic property as well. Why is this the case? Well, there?s a lot of different things to think about. There are actually quite a few reasons why aluminium windows have risen in popularity over the last few years, so let?s cover them together.

Highly Durable

One of the main selling points of aluminium is that it is a highly durable substance which has a lot of different benefits. There are many examples of situations where aluminium can be very helpful for people, but when it comes to windows, you have to consider how tough they are. They are resistant to a lot of forms of weathering, particularly the naturally acidic content of rain, so when it comes to protecting your property for longer, aluminium windows can go the distance.

Energy Efficient

Aluminium is a naturally reflective surface, and one which has a very good energy efficiency, if you pair it with the right type of glass for your property. Basically, aluminium will reflect the heat back in the house, and at the same time reflect the cold air out of the house, so you have a better degree of temperature control over the interior of your property. This makes them great, especially when you consider that the price of heating is usually going up, and being able to save money where you can is never a bad thing.

Maintenance

Maintaining windows can be a pain, because they do tend to get quite damaged over time. It?s easy to find ourselves getting quite exasperated with having to make constant repairs to the windows, but with aluminium, this is not the case.

Because aluminium has a very long lifespan, it can be left for considerable periods of time without the need for maintenance. This means that you don?t have to spend as much overall, which ties in with the overall low cost of the aluminium windows themselves. These types of windows really aren?t expensive, and often clocking at being less expensive than something like a proper window frame.

So, in conclusion, these are just a few of the different things that you think about when it comes to getting the most from your experiences. Aluminium windows are perhaps the best choice for someone who is looking to make a change. These windows have really risen in popularity this year because of all their benefits. You would be wise to consider investing in these windows, because they really do make all the difference when it comes to getting the most from energy efficiency, maintenance costs, a long lifespan, and so many other factors. Aluminium windows are proven to be an incredibly useful and versatile resource, and one which you should definitely consider using if you?re looking for new windows.

Here at Alphamet we have a vast range of aluminium window systems for the domestic market to suit your needs and budget, all our windows can be sprayed to suit your needs and we can provide a number of options regarding accessories, handles and opening structures.

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 window frame

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.

Why Use Aluminium Windows?

Aluminium has become the go to material for frames these days and in building eco friendly large scale projects there are many reasons why we are using aluminium window frames as opposed to timber or uPvc. ?Aluminium windows are everywhere now, used for commercial and residential projects and the benefits are clear for all to see.

Aluminium is durable & Strong

The beautiful thing about Aluminium is that it is super strong and this means it holds the glass in place better than UPVC and other materials and also means longer lasting.

Despite their ultra-light weight, aluminium frames are very strong. The frames can also be easily manipulated, making them the perfect choice if you have windows that are an unusual shape.

The strength of aluminium frames means that they can be made slimmer than timber or PVC, allowing more space for glazing and therefore more light.

Aluminium is ideal for replacing old steel frames

If you have steel window frames, replacing with Aluminium makes perfect sense, you get a stronger alternative and better looking alternative but there is minimal disruption to your business or home.

Aluminium is flexible

You can bend aluminium to your needs, which means less rivets and joints that can break around the frame. Also, makes for a more streamlined look.

Maintenance?

Aluminium does not rust, so you wont have to worry about keeping them clean, also aluminium can be sprayed by a professional aluminium company or coated for aesthetics so you get the look you want with low maintenance.

If you want window frames to blend with your overall exterior d?cor scheme, you could choose powder-coated aluminium frames, which are available in a wide range of colours. Powder-coated frames don?t need painting and the colour won?t fade, making them the perfect choice if you want a splash of colour without the hassle of regular maintenance.

Environmental friendly Aluminium

Not many people know that aluminium is completely recyclable, which means you are investing in the future of our planet and keeping your carbon footprint to a minimum.
