There are many benefits to aluminium roof windows; they have an aesthetic appeal that is unmatched and they can be easily integrated into a home’s design, regardless of the style or type of architecture. Moreover, these windows offer superior thermal efficiency as well as energy savings, since they conduct heat through its body instead of letting it radiate outwards.

Aluminium roof windows also come in different shapes and sizes, which means you get more options when choosing your window for a variety of rooms in your home. You can choose from single-glazed units with fixed panels for maximum insulation; double glazed units with movable panes to let light pass through while keeping warmth inside, or triple glazed models with special coatings on their glass surfaces so that they allow even more sunlight to enter but keep the cold outside air away. Also, unlike other products such as vinyl siding, there are no chemicals involved in manufacturing aluminium roof windows, making them environmentally friendly and widely recyclable.

Aluminium roof windows are sturdy, made using high-quality materials and construction techniques that make them durable and long-lasting. If you want a product that will last for years to come, then this is definitely the one for you. Aluminium windows are available in a variety of frame styles, including contemporary PC to traditional painted wooden frames.

How Do I Choose A Window Frame For My Home?

Top Hung Opening Out Windows

Top hung opening windows are more suitable for modern types of aluminium windows. The hinges are on the left and right sides of the window with the handle being at the bottom making it very convenient for opening.

Top Third Pivot Opening

This window is one of its kind in its design and unlike the centre pivot opens to a 38° angle 3 quarters of the way up. With the push of a single handle, operated from the bottom users will have access to a full unobstructed view.

Another frame that you can consider is the tilt and turn opening windows, which are operated using a multi-functional handle with two opening options. One of the biggest benefits with tilt and turn windows is the size, they can vary from smaller windows to the same size as a door.


Sliding Aluminium Windows

There are two different types of sliding aluminium windows, vertical and horizontal sliding. The vertical sliding type replicates the look of traditional sash windows and the horizontal design is essentially a cut-down patio sliding door with the largest possible window opening.
