Are PVCu Windows Better Than Aluminium?
If you are in the market for a new set of windows or even just a small number of replacements and weighing up your options, you will probably have come across the age-old debate of whether aluminium or PVCu windows are better. This is not a new discussion and one that riles up both sides of the debate, with the aluminium faithful staking their claims that their choice of window is better and the PVCu offering very much the same argument in return.
Which is better, though? When faced with this kind of question, it’s best to take a more rounded and balanced approach to discovering the answer. Because if you choose to listen to either side of the debate, their reasons are heavily biased.
To help you out, therefore, in the following post, we have tried to help you come to a more informed decision about which is best for you and whether you should opt for PVCu windows or aluminium ones. To do this, we will take a reasonably thorough look at both window options. We will look at both kinds of windows in some very key areas that you should always consider when choosing windows, such as security, durability, strength, thermal insulation and soundproofing, the aesthetics and installation.
