The Benefits of Modern Aluminium Windows

28 Jan 2022

When you’re renovating or building a new home, you’ll have a thousand and one decisions to make. From comparing colour schemes in the lounge to choosing benchtops in the kitchen and tiles in the bathroom.

One of the most important choices you’ll make is which material to use for your windows, and making that decision isn’t always easy. After all, there are several materials to choose from and all of them have their benefits.

But luckily, there’s one material that is clearly superior on most fronts, from durability to style and affordability – modern aluminium windows. Here’s why:

They’re more affordable

Renovating, building or updating your home isn’t cheap, so it’s always a good idea to save a little money however you can. Installing modern aluminium windows is one way to do that without sacrificing the functionality, style or durability of your property. That’s because despite their good looks and long-lasting quality, aluminium windows are generally cheaper than other materials – often by a significant margin.

Modern aluminium windows are often more stylish

When you invest in a new build or renovation, you want the finished product to look amazing. And while you may not think it, the design of your windows plays a huge part in the overall look of your home once it’s done.

That said, the fact is that aluminium windows just look better than windows made from other materials. They have a modern, minimalist style, and since aluminium is so naturally strong – the frames can be made thinner to give them a sleek, low profile look.

They’re customisable

Don’t like a certain style or colour? No problem, modern aluminium windows are fully customisable with different functions, styles and colours available.

A-Tech Australia offers a huge range of aluminium windows including awning, sliding louvre, bifold, stackers and fixed windows – each with their own benefits and uses. We also offer a wide range of premium coatings so that you can choose a colour and finish that best suits your new home.

They’ll last longer

Installing windows in your home is something you only want to do once. That’s why aluminium windows are such a good option.

Whether you’re living along the coast in Queensland, or in the city of Sydney – these windows are built to resist the harsh Australian elements. That means they’re rust-resistant, weatherproof and structurally strong, even in high winds. It also means they’ll look just as amazing in 10 years as they do today – and could last a lifetime with the right care.

For added peace of mind, A-Tech Australia offers a 7-year workmanship warranty and our aluminium frames, glass screens and powder coat products also have a comprehensive warranty.

You’ll spend less time on maintenance

Aluminium windows are extremely resistant to rust and discolouration. All you’ll have to do to keep them looking brand new is give them a quick clean with a damp cloth and soapy water once every six months or so. Other window frames may require resealing, sanding and painting, which can quickly become expensive and time consuming.

That means maintaining aluminium windows is much cheaper and easier than most alternatives.

They may be more secure

The weakest points of most homes are inevitably the windows, which can make them a vulnerability when it comes to home security. This is especially true with certain types of window frames, especially those that are made of softer materials.

Aluminium window frames, on the other hand, are incredibly strong and durable. This makes forcing them open or damaging them extremely difficult, especially if you take other security measures to protect your windows.

Aluminium windows are more sustainable

The construction industry comprises roughly 18% of Australia’s carbon footprint. That’s why it’s so important to use sustainable materials wherever possible, to reduce your home’s environmental impact and carbon footprint – both during the build and long into the future.

With that in mind, aluminium is one of the most sustainable and environmentally friendly construction materials that exists today.

It can be infinitely recycled and recycling just one tonne of aluminium saves 9 tonnes of C02 emissions. In fact, 75% of aluminium that has ever been made is still in use and recycling aluminium only requires 5% of the energy required to make it from scratch.

Aluminium windows are impossible to beat when it comes to style, durability and environmental impact, making them an obvious choice for your next renovation or new build. Want to find out more? Get in touch with A-Tech Australia today to find out more or request a quote.
