What are Aluminum Sash Windows?

 

A modern take on this traditional English home staple, aluminium sliding sash windows work by having two window frames slid above against the other. While they were originally made from wood, their double glazed aluminium sash windows counterparts guarantee stronger and more durable mechanisms without doing much maintenance.

Why Choose metal sash windows?

 

Compared to the traditional wooden sash windows, homeowners have a good variety in choosing their preferred ways to window colors. They can opt for either black aluminium sash windows, grey aluminium sash windows, or white aluminium sash windows.

However, aesthetics is not their only distinctive feature. Over the years, aluminium has been one of the most commonly used building material due to its durability, strength, and high resistance to corrosion. At the same time, its manageable thickness allows sash windows made from this material to be thin enough to make room for bigger glass space while hiding any eyesore framing.

Of course, this will depend on your home’s architectural style as well as the purpose of the room it’s covering for. For instance, awning windows work with toilets since they can easily provide strong ventilation amidst its typically small size. On the other hand, clerestory windows are perfect for homes with high ceilings to maximize daylight, and if opened, can serve as an excellent driver for cross-ventilation.

Types of Window Framing Styles to Choose From

 

Now that you have a concrete design in mind, now is the time to see how it can be nicely outlined into your exterior walls. Generally, there are four types of framing types available today – vinyl, aluminum, wood, and fiberglass.

1. Vinyl – Typically made from PVC, vinyl frames provide good insulation and excellent moisture resistance. Although this seems to be popular among modern homeowners, many seem to notice the lack of its visual appeal.

2. Aluminium – If you’re particular with longevity while still looking crisp and clean, then aluminium frames might be your home’s perfect match. Since they’re made from a durable metal, you no longer have to worry about any maintenance issues for as long as you like. However, remember that these frames conduct heat – hence combining them with other insulating materials can perfectly cancel this downside.

3. Wood - If your home is of traditional style, you might be familiar of wooden window frames. While they perfectly complement a rustic, vintage aesthetic, they are relatively high maintenance.

4. Fiberglass – Usually made from fine sand, fiberglass frames are perfect for homes located within environmentally-challenged conditions. However, remember that they can be more expensive compared to other framing types.

Apart from those looking for window inspirations from scratch, finding the right framing type to use before starting a window sash replacement project can further reduce initial construction costs and later, limit your maintenance costs.

This Year’s Most Trendy Colors (for Windows)

 

With today’s ever-evolving design technologies, gone are the days when every window at sight are merely made of plain, clear glass. At present, homeowners can choose between every imaginable color to match their preferred (or existing) exterior walls. While neutrals like white, grey, black won’t definitely go out of style, opting for a bold window color need not be that pressure-inducing.

When picking the right color for both your window framing and glass panels, remember that they will likely to be there for years. If you’re planning to use bold colors like red and yellow, make sure to opt for neutral exterior walls to keep your home from being too visually empowering.

If you have an existing exterior design to work with, consider the material and color palette used. Say, if your walls have a dark wood finish, examine the surface and look for the right warm-toned shade with a window tint or framing you can find.

For those who’d like to keep it safe, playing with color lightness and darkness can be a good start. Instead of opting for cobalt blue, for example, darker shades of blue like indigo could be a more-toned down alternative.

The Bottom line

If you’re looking for a durable, low-maintenance, yet visually-appealing window sash material, then an aluminium metal sash window would be the perfect modern twist to your otherwise conservative home.
