Check Out the New Aluminum Windows
Aluminum windows were quite popular in the 1970s and 1980s. They fell out of favor as vinyl windows began to gain in popularity, but now they are seeing a comeback, both as stand-alone windows and as part of wood clad windows. Aluminum windows are incredibly durable, are quite easy to clean and maintain, and don't run the risk of swelling or cracking like their wooden counterparts. A factory-baked finish means that cleaning is even easier, and that painting is never an issue. Aluminum windows also work well for unusual shapes and sizes, thanks to how easily the material can be molded to certain specifications. Aluminum windows are offered in double-pane options as well, offering great energy savings if they are installed properly throughout your home. A very light material, aluminum makes it easy to have larger windows in spaces that might not be able to handle the weight of heavier materials.
