Why are aluminium windows better than the UPVC windows?
The aluminium window has many benefits over traditional double glazed UPVC (plastic) windows. The main reasons for this are the durability, modern look, sleek design and slim line frames.
These are the reasons why the aluminium window is slowly becoming the popular choice for modern homes and give the buyer a real chance to ‘add value’ to their property. You may also find that the average cost of double glazing for aluminium windows has become less expensive.
Why spend the money?
During these tough times the obvious question is, why should i spend more money on an alternative. An important fact to consider is that during these hard economic times, an important approach to take is to make home improvements in the mind set to ‘add value’ to your home with the idea to making more of a profit when selling your home in years to come. Why own a modern looking home and include old fashioned, cheaply designed windows? They are a key centre piece to any home and are an important aspect to any new building project, or home renovation.
The aluminium window, often known as a replacement window, double glazed window or sash window offers a real way to add value to your property. Whether it is a replacement window for existing double glazing, or a brand new extension or new build. Using slimline and thin frames the aluminium window can offer a real alternative to the cheap looking UPVC window.
Aluminium Windows – Thermal Efficiency
A true downfall of the aluminium framed window over the years has been its energy efficiency. This is a real reason why the UPVC double glazed window has experienced a constant boom. However, recent years’ technological advances in design and materials has meant that the aluminium window can now achieve the highest energy rating possible.

It can reach an ‘A’ WER rating, which is the official government body of efficiency ratings in the window and door industry. As of 2011 every double glazed window must reach at least a ‘C’ WER rating. In order to achieve great thermal efficiency, the aluminium window now uses a thermal break which helps to keep the cold out and heat in.
