Frequently Asked Questions

When choosing which aluminium windows you should use for your home or business, ensure you choose a high-performance window system over a project builder window system.

Aluminium windows are better than PVC windows as they have some important differences. Aluminium windows have a life expectancy of around 45 years, with uPVC frames only expected to last 25-35 years dependant on regular window maintenance. Aluminium windows are structurally stronger that PVC so can be custom made with a slimmer appearance and can hold a larger glass due to the strength of the aluminium frame. Aluminium window frames are powder coated which is extremely durable and will provide and finish that lasts a long time which makes them better than the PVC window option.

Aluminium windows can be integrated with security screens where PVC are very limited with their screening options. Not having the option to leave your windows open safely would be a major disadvantage especially in Perth with its hot weather and the afternoon cooling of the FREO doctor. Adding security screens to uPVC may void manufacturer’s warranty as the security frame would need to be screwed into the PVC frame.
