Why We Recommend Aluminium for Windows and Doors 

Builders are constantly looking for materials that provide the best long-term benefits in terms of cost, durability and how easy it is to use. Aluminium is one of the best building materials to use in Australia as it’s lightweight, strong, long-lasting, affordable and has a variety of applications.  

Aluminium is increasingly popular for everything from roofing, gutters and downpipes to windows and doors. If you’re looking for a lightweight and highly effective material for window frames and doors, aluminium is for you.  


Ideal for the harsh Australian climate, aluminium is weatherproof, resistant to corrosion and does not rust. Aluminium is an excellent choice as windows and doors are often exposed to extreme weather. Aluminium can withstand everything from extreme heat and freezing temperatures to high wind, rain and salty coastal air. Aluminium is around three times stronger than PVC and four times stronger than wood. These attributes make it ideal for the main entry door, internal kitchen or bedroom windows, patio door or bathroom windows.  

Value for Money  

Compared to other options, like timber and PVC, aluminium offers the best long-term value for windows and doors. While the initial cost of PVC might be smaller, aluminium wins out in terms of having a much lower cost of upkeep and lasting far longer. As a builder, you can be confident in offering guarantees and warranties for your workmanship when using such a reliable material. Your customers will be happier as they won’t have to deal with as many repairs and maintenance over the lifespan of their property. 

It Looks Better  

Timber looks dated while PVC looks cheap. When it comes to home design, aluminium represents the best in contemporary architecture. It can be easily powder-coated for different looks and finishes for property owners who don’t want an industrial look. It’s easy to customise window and door frames with the desired colour and finish. Powder coating also contributes to the durability of the product. 


No matter what the shape or dimension of your doors and windows, aluminium can be fabricated to achieve the most challenging specifications. Due to its robustness, aluminium is often used for the construction of large doors and sliding windows. Large timber panels are prone to warping and twisting on the other hand, especially when exposed to harsh weather conditions.  


If your environmental footprint is important to you as a builder or for any of your customers, aluminium is an excellent option. Being one hundred per cent recyclable and reusable, aluminium is far more environmentally friendly than uPVC. or timber. It is efficient to produce and if you ever need to replace your aluminium frames, the old ones can be recycled into other new objects.
