Why Switch to Aluminium Windows?

The benefits of aluminium are plentiful, from being environmentally friendly to resistant and our aluminium windows are no exception. They are strong, durable and easy to maintain making them the perfect choice for any modern contemporary home.

Still unsure if these windows are for you? We’ve put together a list of the benefits and best reasons to switch from your current windows to brand new aluminium ones so you can decide for yourself!

Aluminium is durable and resistant

This material is a fantastic product for building sturdy doors and windows, much stronger than timber or uPVC. This is because aluminium is significantly more resistant to harsher elements compared to other material frames making it able to withstand all weathers, no matter where you live.

It’s also worth noting that aluminium will not rust and can last up to 30 years, making it a worthwhile investment.

They’re low maintenance

These frames require little maintenance to keep them looking in top condition. You generally only need to clean them twice a year, using soapy water then wiping clean with a soft cloth. This will ensure they stay looking shiny and new for a very long time.

Affordable over other materials

Aluminium is the cheaper alternative to timber and its uPVC counterpart by offering the best value for your money. Over time, timber will require increasingly regular maintenance and eventually need to be replaced all together costing you money that you didn’t need to spend. Aluminium, as seen above, boasts low maintenance benefits.

Thermal efficient

Aluminium has significantly improved in recent years and offers great insulation. Our windows help to keep out draughts and trap the heat in your home, leaving it warmer for longer providing cost-effective benefits to homeowners hoping to save on heating and energy bills.

Here at Lite Haus, our aluminium frames utilise poly amide thermal break technology which increase thermal insulation.

Energy efficient and environmentally friendly

Did you know that aluminium is a fully sustainable material? Meaning it’s 100% recyclable and non-toxic, reducing your carbon footprint without you having to actually do anything. This material can be continuously recycled and only uses 5% of the initial energy it took to produce it. This means all of our modern window frames are high performing in terms of energy efficiency.

In addition to all of this, using aluminium also helps save timber and reduces plastic use.

Sleek and modern look

In a nutshell, aluminium is the pinnacle of modern contemporary architecture. It’s an incredibly popular aesthetic and gives a sleek appearance to homes they’re added to. Thin aluminium frames allow more glass-to-frame ratio. Simply put, less window frame and more glass means more natural light and a maximised view for your enjoyment.

With our aluminium frames available in almost every RAL colour finish, you can really make a statement and make your home, your own.
