Aluminium

Aluminium glazing is surrounded by a wooden exterior. They are very strong just like the UPVC. People who do not like the white plastic that is found on the UPVC prefer aluminium instead. The cost of the frames is higher when compared to ordinary white coloured UPVC frames. You can get the frames in a variety of colours, timber d├ęcor, and style. When it comes to maintenance, you need to put in some effort as they require some maintenance.

Wood

Wooden frames bring out a rustic and traditional design to the unit. Some historical or listed properties, only allow wood to be used in frames. With wood, you can use different timber together with a range of sealant, paints and primers to come up with the colour that you want. Unfortunately, wood is easily affected by extreme weather conditions.
