With more and more emphasis placed on the use of sustainable, energy efficient construction materials, it’s crucial that you’re fully aware of all the options open to you when choosing new windows to rejuvenate your West Midlands home. We’re sure you’re aware of cost-effective uPVC, authentic timber, and ultra-slim aluminium windows – but what about aluminium clad windows?… Well, stay tuned, as you’re about to find out!


alucladWhat are aluminium clad windows?

Clad means “dressed or covered”, so in this instance alu clad windows are made from authentic timber that’s covered in a layer of aluminium on the outside frame.

Are alu clad windows worth it?

If outstanding efficiency and aesthetics is important to you, then alu clad windows are definitely worth it! Providing a naturally corrosion-resistant exterior that’s smoothly combined with a beautifully traditional timber interior, premium aluminium clad windows (like ours!) can last up to 40 years or more. Both materials are also renowned for their exceptional energy saving qualities, impressively achieving U-values as low as 0.9 W/m²K united with modern double or triple glazing – making them the ideal option for low energy eco homes.

Are aluclad windows expensive?

Alu-clad windows are steadily rising in popularity due to the fact that they’re constructed from two of the best construction materials around. These charming composite windows are at the higher end of the pricing scale, but the range of benefits they offer make them an incredibly worthwhile investment that’s sure to add considerable value in terms of property price and kerb appeal.

Are aluminium windows better than uPVC?

This all depends on what you’re trying to achieve. If your project requires the slimmest sightlines, classically styled interior frames with a modern edge on the outside, alu clad windows are the preferred option. uPVC offers versatile customisation with a range of authentic woodgrain effects to choose from. Its multi-chambered profile is also incredibly efficient, however there’s no getting past that it cannot achieve the slender sightlines that timber and aluminium windows can.

Aluminium is also stronger and lighter than uPVC, which allows for the enviable ‘less frame, more glass’ look. And, although uPVC has become a much greener product in the last few decades, wooden windows are biodegradable and absorb CO2, whilst aluminium is one of the few construction materials that can be repeatedly recycled with no loss of quality whatsoever.
