For years, architects and builders have specified aluminum windows for their overall strength and lasting value. Because of their rigidity, durability and narrow frames, aluminum windows can be configured into a wide variety of combinations that maximize views. Aluminum windows are also popular because of their low maintenance. They won’t rust or rot, you don’t have to paint them, and they’re available with tough anodized or baked-on finishes. The downside of aluminum windows in the past was that they weren’t very energy efficient. Aluminum readily conducts heat and cold. In cold weather, your home’s heat seeps out through the sash and frame. Today, better quality aluminum windows, equipped with thermal breaks, separate the interior and exterior surfaces of the window to improve their energy efficiency.
