When you need to create the illusion of more space at home, windows often take centre stage. Flooding spaces with rejuvenating natural light, slimline aluminium windows continue to increase in popularity throughout Wolverhampton and right across the West Midlands. Providing ultra-slim, highly sought-after modern sightlines, reminiscent of those you marvel at on TV programs like Grand Designs, modern aluminium windows can do much more than just increase kerb appeal. Here are 5 reasons to revitalise your home with modern aluminium double glazed windows.
1. Long lasting, low maintenance windows
Impressively lasting up to 45 years, aluminium window frames offer the longest lifespan with the least amount of maintenance involved. It’s true that timber windows can last up to 60 years+, but they require regular maintenance and a fresh coat of paint every 7-10 years to maintain their traditional appeal. Offering the highest level of natural corrosion resistance and weather-protection of any window material around (to date), aluminium windows are by far the best investment for Wolverhampton homeowners and landlords looking for a ‘fit and forget’ window style that literally pays for itself.
2. Aluminium windows are inherently strong
Unable to rot or warp, windows made from aluminium provide the strongest and most durable window system around. Renowned for its high strength-to-weight ratio, aluminium is lightweight yet incredibly strong. So, aluminium windows can accommodate virtually any size or shape with the least amount of fuss.
3. Thermally superior
Considering the government’s latest Green Home Scheme is just about to come into effect, coupled with the fact that around 35% of UK emissions are generated by households, finding energy efficient windows should be high on your list of priorities.

Manufactured using the very latest technologies and processes, modern aluminium windows offer the absolute best in terms of energy efficiency, thanks to the inclusion of innovative polyamide thermal barriers. Also known as ‘thermally broken frames’, aluminium thermal breaks are basically plastic barriers that are fitted in between the inner and outer window frame. The use of low thermally conductive materials such as these successfully prevents the flow of thermal energy, notably reducing energy bills and carbon footprints across the board.
It’s also essential to bear in mind that, since 2010, windows must have a minimum energy rating of band C to comply with Building Regulations. And with further changes to building regs. predicted sooner rather than later, it’s a better time than any to upgrade to A++ rated aluminium windows.
