Aluminium or UPVC – Analysing The Benefits Of Both Materials

As outdoor temperatures start to drop, it may have you thinking about prepping your home in time for the harsh winter weather. 

White Aluminium Windows

For many homeowners, this involves important tasks like clearing your gutters, checking your boiler and ensuring you’re getting the best energy deal. 

There are several things you can do to winterise your home, but nothing has quite as big an impact as replacing your old windows. 

Investing in new windows can help keep your home warmer, quieter and more secure. But, how do you know which material is best for your home? 

It’s a tough decision, as all materials offer several benefits! 

We’ve narrowed down your search to two of the most popular window materials and listed the benefits of each, so you can make the most informative decision when it comes to choosing replacement windows. 


Incredibly tough – Although they may look slender, do not be deceived, as aluminium windows are incredibly tough, making them the perfect choice if durability and security are at the top of your priority list. 

Stunning aesthetics – As the face of your home, the exterior is just as important as what’s on the inside. Several powder-coated finishes are available in matt, satin, or gloss, so you can achieve the aluminium windows you’ve always dreamt of. 

Range of colours – You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to deciding the colour of your new windows. Whether you choose a single colour or dual coloured aluminium windows, we’re bound to have exactly what you’re looking for. It takes several stages to accomplish the finished look and they’ll retain a fresh appearance for years to come. 


Weather resistant – Extreme weather conditions can take their toll on your home’s exterior, which means components such as your windows may not be insulating your home as well as they used to. By replacing your old windows with UPVC windows, you can improve your home’s energy efficiency, which, in the long-term, can help reduce your energy bills and save you money. 

Low maintenance – Some windows need a bit of TLC in order to keep them looking their best, which means you may have to spend time repainting, repairing, sanding or varnishing your windows every few months. UPVC windows only require the bare minimum of maintenance. Any marks on the frame can be wiped down in a matter of seconds which is perfect if you’re strapped for time. 

Very affordable – You don’t need to break the bank in order to replace your windows. UPVC windows are inexpensive in comparison to other alternatives. Plus, here at Hazlemere, all our products come with a comprehensive 10 year guarantee. So, you can have peace of mind knowing your new windows are covered for at least a decade!
