Energy-Efficient and Beautiful Windows
Aluminum windows on the side of an older home might look quite dated, warped, and even damaged. Why? Over time, aluminum windows do deteriorate if the maintenance isn't up to par. Exposure to extreme heat and cold, as well as weathering the storms that come with the change of seasons, doesn't bode well for aluminum windows that have stood in good service for several decades. However, newer aluminum windows are even sturdier than their predecessors, and offer many new advantages that those older windows could only dream of having. Today's aluminum windows are stronger than ever, and they offer energy-efficiency options, including low U-values and protection from the harmful UV rays of the sun. As an added bonus, aluminum double-pane windows are great for soundproofing, as the air trapped between the panes adds a sound barrier cushion that helps keep the interior of your house as quiet as it can be.
