Window Frames

Once you have chosen the type of window for your property, the next thing to consider is the type of frame. Below are some commonly used windows frame materials to choose from

Wooden/Timber Frames

Wooden frames are widely popular since ages because of its classical appearance and unique beauty. Wood is a bad conductor of heat and provides better insulation than aluminium frames. With proper care, wooden frames can last a lifetime.

However, wood needs to be painted or else it can swell from moisture or worse can get targeted by termites and insects.

Aluminium Frames

Unlike other materials, aluminium frames do not swell, shrink, fade, or rust and are cheaper than wooden frames. They are strong yet light-weight and are available in numerous colour tones for all sorts of clients’ taste. Aluminium is 100% recyclable and non-toxic thus leaving minimal ecological footprint.

Compared to uPVC, aluminium frames are more durable but also carries higher initial costs.

uPVC Frames

uPVC (unplasticized polyvinylchloride) is a highly resilient material gaining wide popularity because of its cost-effectiveness, low-maintenance, and excellent soundproofing. When used in conjunction with double-glazing, it helps reduce energy bills to considerable levels.

Unlike other materials, uPVC requires little to no maintenance and is the most affordable option, yet no way lacks quality or style.
