Aluminium or uPVC?

When deciding between new aluminium or uPVC frames for your windows and doors, there are a number of factors to consider. 

Aluminium frames tend to have a more modern look, being slimmer than uPVC therefore allowing maximum light into a room. They are more durable than uPVC frames with a lifespan of around 50 years however they do come with an increased cost.

uPVC window and door frames are made from less expensive materials and therefore tend to be cheaper than frames made from aluminium. uPVC frames have a lifespan of around 30 years and offer excellent value for money.

Both products come with great energy efficiency ratings and both provide high levels of security.
