For a number of years, aluminum windows had a bit of a negative connotation to them. They were too often thought of in the same vein as school windows – not very aesthetic, etc. But as is the case with most things, tastes and technology evolve and now aluminum windows are all the rage – and with good reason, many of which we’ll explore today.
Durability & longevity
Much like metal roofs, aluminum windows are lightweight and long-lasting. Are they a bit more up front? Sure are – but they’ll also last forever. They’re also powder-coated making them more resistant to things like scratching, chipping and fading. Not only do they last longer, but they look good longer, too
Not much maintenance required
One of the best things about aluminum windows is that you really don’t have to maintain them much. They are weatherproof, corrosion resistant and really outside of wiping finger prints and dust off – you don’t have to do much of anything to keep them in good, working order.
Aluminum windows are thin, sleek and are capable of creating that eye-catching design you’ve been hoping for. You can create large expanses of glass that add sunlight and provide fantastic views. You can have creative entrances and exits to your living space. And most importantly – they can blend into just about any style of house seemlessly – including older homes.
Literally anything is possible when it comes to choosing colors with aluminum windows. They’re bright and they really can help bring a strong accent to your space. You don’t have to worry about painting them yourself – heck – you won’t have to worry about painting them ever. They maintain their color and pop well over time.
Aluminum windows often come with double or triple pane glass. That means that not only are they more resistant to things like breaking, but they also help save money on energy – as they generally retain heat and cold far better than your standard issue windows.
