West Country Windows have been in the business of supplying and installing quality windows, doors and conservatories for the past four decades. We are a leading UK window company that believes in delivering the very best products to our customers, whilst proving the highest standard of service. We invite our prospective clients and industry partners to a deep-dive conversation about the best material for your windows - is it aluminium or wood?
When we talk about durability, aluminium windows surpass wooden windows by offering exceptional strength. If taken well care of, aluminium windows can last decades. Wooden windows tend to contract and expand due to climatic conditions and may become warped over the years. The frequency by which wooden windows are replaced is higher than that of aluminium windows. However, it is also true that wooden windows are strong, efficient and still provide long term reliability.
Aluminium windows could be seen as cost-saving when compared with wooden windows for three main reasons; they are cheaper to buy, they are cheaper to install and they are maintenance-free. But on the flip side, wooden windows are more energy-efficient than aluminium windows due to the natural insulating properties of timber. So even if wooden windows do cost more upfront than aluminium windows, you can make back much of that cost over time by saving energy.
So which material is the winner then? If you look at them both objectively each material has definite pros and cons. We recommend choosing the type of window that suits your taste and compliments your home. West Country Windows offer durable bespoke aluminium windows and an extensive selection of timber casement windows, which are manufactured by our professional teams and are fully guaranteed. Our aluminium window installation services are some of the best in the business, providing unique spacer technology and high quality performing glass. For our wooden windows, we use boron-based preservatives and water-based microporous coatings which prevent rot and fungal decay. You simply can’t go wrong when choosing a window from West Country Windows!
