Switching to aluminium doors and windows is not only possible – it’s also highly recommended. Many older homes have wooden doors and windows, which are prone to many issues over time. Replacing these windows and doors for modern, longer-lasting aluminium ones will be an investment that soon pays off. With the help of an experienced expert in aluminium doors and windows, you will be able to enjoy brand new frames that can be customised according to your preferences. Keep reading to find out how to make the switch and why it is a good investment.
Switching to Aluminium Doors and Windows
The first step in making the switch to aluminium doors and windows is to evaluate your current frames and think about your future goals. Are they starting to show signs of rot or damage? Are you looking to update to something more modern? Do you live in a coastal area that causes wooden frames to weaken over time? Once you have a better idea of the current condition of your frames and what you are looking for in new frames, it will be much easier to go ahead with the replacement.
You will need to work with a specialist, such as PG Aluminium and discuss your needs. We will then help you choose the right frames for your needs, do measurements and an evaluation of your current frames and then do the replacement. Although it is possible to replace frames yourself, it is far better to get professional help as it is very easy to make mistakes in measurements or end up being unable to fit your frames.
Now that we’ve given you an idea of how frames are replaced, let’s take a look at some of the reasons to replace your old windows and doors.
Aluminium lasts much longer than other materials, in all climates. This means that you won’t have to update your frames or do many repairs over time. There is no need for maintenance such as varnishing, either. You won’t have to worry about rot, termites or other common problems that occur with wood.
Easier to clean.
These frames are easy to clean, too. Using a mild soap solution, you can clean them quickly and easily with minimal effort. This will keep your frames looking as good as new for years to come. As the metal dries quickly, you won’t have to worry about frames staying wet or water soaking into the wood.
Finally, aluminium is a durable metal that is stronger than wood. This means that windows and doors will be far less likely to break. As a result, your doors and windows will be more secure and less prone to wear and tear, giving you peace of mind at all times.
