Advantages of Aluminum-clad Wood Windows
Aluminum-clad wood is a combination of a wood frame and aluminum with a protective aluminum shell on the outside and natural wood on the inside.
Aluminum is a versatile building material used in everything from household items to aircraft. It is found everywhere in the home, from curtains, shelves, windows, and folding glass door units. It is a lightweight material that is strengthened by the addition of alloys. (An alloy is a metal with the properties of two or more elements.) This alone makes aluminum a versatile building material. Strong, lightweight windows can accommodate large areas of glass. Thin window frames are perfect for homes with a minimalist aesthetic. The thin frames of aluminum windows create clean, crisp lines while allowing plenty of natural light into your home.
In addition, aluminum windows are available in a variety of colors and can be molded into many shapes. Painting on this material should be done at the factory to resist corrosion and minimize maintenance.
Wood windows can be painted or stained in light or dark colors. In addition to being an aesthetically pleasing product, wood windows are also highly energy efficient. Wood windows have no heat transfer and perform as well or better than vinyl windows.
