Aluminium Windows Surrey, Hampshire and Berkshire

If you are thinking about new windows, aluminium frames are definitely worth considering. Peoples’ first stop is usually PVC-U, and this is very understandable when looking at its benefits. However, aluminium window frames have a lot to offer.

Aluminium is a strong, yet light, malleable metal which is fully sustainable and is ideal for engineering purposes. Here at Camberley Glass and Windows we first used aluminium for window frames when they were introduced in the 1970s and 80s to replace timber frames. Aluminium frames proved to be more durable and allowed for different styles. The frames with timber inserts were cheaper than the former hardwood frames. In addition, the strength of aluminium allowed for narrow profiles and larger expanses of glass to be used, which paved the way for sliding and bifold doors.

Need for Aluminium Windows

Today aluminium windows offer a real alternative option to PVC-U and can give your house a completely different look. The glazing is emphasised because of the narrow profiles and slim sightlines of the aluminium frames. The frames’ clean lines will provide a modern sleek look to your property. Many classic 20th century buildings were provided with aluminium frame windows, and we supply Contemporary windows which are perfect for that period look. Our Panoramic aluminium windows can also provide a statement to a facade if you want an ultra-modern look. However, we also provide Heritage aluminium windows which would suit older properties as a replacement for steel windows. Our Ovolo windows are perfect for country cottages and period homes, and our Chamfered windows are in keeping with most 20th century homes. We even supply a Bay Window option.

Benefits of Aluminium Windows

Aluminium windows tend to be slightly more expensive than PVC-U so why would you choose them?

  • They are lightweight, resistant to corrosion and decay and are totally recyclable.
  • Aluminium windows can last up to 60 years as opposed to timber and PVC-U which may last 10 years and 20 years respectively.
  • Because they are lightweight they are perfect for walls which cannot carry much weight, such as non-structural cladding.
  • Aluminium can be easily anodized or powder coated with aluminium paint to provide a smooth or textured finish. Anodizing means that the outer surface forms a layer of aluminium oxide which is very resistant to all types of weather.
  • Because it is pliable, aluminium won’t break or crack, swell or warp.
  • They allow more light into the room and offer less obstruction to the view from the inside.
  • Aluminium is environmentally friendly because it is wholly recyclable. 75% of the aluminium ever produced is still in use today and the recycling process involves a very small carbon footprint.

Frames and Glazing

Our aluminium frames are available in a range of profiles and frame depths. They have a thermal break and trickle vents to ensure that there will be no condensation.

The aluminium windows supplied by us can be double or triple glazed and there is a wide range of glazing styles to choose from. You can have stained or patterned glass, lead or Georgian bars.
