Our Aluminium collection

Aluminium vs PVC

For many years, PVC was the typical choice for windows and doors. Recently, aluminium has emerged as the new favourite with customers preferring the slim modern design and fantastic thermal performance. Here we look at the differences between aluminium and PVC and why aluminium is inevitably the better choice.


    Aluminium windows and doors are much more robust than PVC so can last much longer. With proper care, aluminium windows can last around 50 years, compared with PVC’s much shorter shelf life of 25 to 30 years.

  • COST

    PVC is cheaper than aluminium, but the performance and quality of material is a lot lower too. Aluminium is a strong investment for any project, with impressive energy efficiency, extra longevity and modern design, it’s clearly worth the cost.


    One of the popular reasons Aluminium is chosen, is the incredible thermal performance from aluminium windows and doors. Impressive energy efficiency and reduced condensation, means a more comfortable living space all year round.


    PVC has limited colour foil options which can be easily marked and damaged. Aluminium has a modern, stylish colour palette with different finishes and textures to achieve a desired look. Aluminium colour and performance is made to last.


    Thanks to the natural strength of aluminium, it is much more robust and durable than PVC. Aluminium is also a low density metal, so you can achieve very slimline window and door frames which are incredibly sturdy and strong.


    Alongside the impressive natural strength of aluminium vs PVC, all aluminium windows and doors are completely secure with top-quality hardware and multipoint shoot bolt locking mechanisms.
