Replacing aluminum windows in your home

If you have aluminum windows in your Atlanta area home, you could benefit from replacing them.

Aluminum windows are typically found in two installations:

  • As builder grade (new construction) windows, which are the least expensive a builder can use
  • As storm windows, probably installed to cover the existing windows - a quick fix to an ongoing problem

During the 1970s, aluminum was the least expensive type of window available for new construction. Some builders selected wood for new construction projects, but not often.

The problem with aluminum windows is that aluminum is a very poor insulator, which means these windows conduct a lot of heat and cold. Specifically, they conduct heat into your home in the summer and out of your home in the winter - not exactly energy efficient. Because it heats and cools quickly, aluminum is great in pots and pans for the restaurant industry, but very poor for the housing industry.

When it's time to replace aluminum windows in Atlanta, green, energy-efficient vinyl replacement windows can make a big difference:
