The openings in your house are one of the most important decisions when it comes to the building process. There exists so many different choices, colour, sizes but most importantly the material with which you will be making the windows and doors.
When the discussion of the latter 2 arises, the same 2 options always appear; Wood or Aluminium? While many may engage in this age old discussion, we have prepared a list of advantages, which clearly shows why Aluminium is by far the winner of the competition between these 2 materials. JMD International specialized in aluminium openings in Mauritius compares:
Windows and doors made out of aluminium provide such a long life and durability that it cannot be compared to any other material, even wood. Taking good care of the aluminium by performing regular and correct cleaning as well as maintenance resulting in the aluminium openings lasting for easily the better part of decades to come.
Windows and doors made out of wood on the other hand are open to a number of complications such as warping, contracting or expanding due to temperature and humidity, or change in the material due to seasons of the year. These types of openings are hence easily spoiled and will require rapid replacement as they will end up being damaged.
The end cost of any opening job relies very much on the number of openings which are to be fitted. That being said, for the same given job, if aluminium were to be used, it would be much cheaper and cost effective than using wood.
This is because aluminium is a more readily available and easy to obtain, owing to its relatively low price. Moreover, aluminium is much easier to work on hence furthermore reducing the price of using it for the job than using wood.
Wood being an organic material, is extremely vulnerable to a plethora of problems related to weather. As said above, it expands and contracts depending on the temperature and also is very prone to absorbing moisture, hence causing a phenomenon called warping, which is basically the wood getting deformed.
As a result, wood windows require much maintenance which might just add up to the already hefty price for installing it.
Aluminium on the other hand, is not affected by such environmental related problems. It effectively fights against any kind of deterioration from all types of weather and climate without you having to do a single thing.
Aluminium is extremely beneficial when it comes to interior design. Owing to its high malleability, the metal can easily be beaten and and shaped in order to fit any sort of window design. If you have windows of uncommon shapes, Aluminium is definitely the way to go.
Wood is rigid and requires much craftsmanship and effort to be able to shape it into peculiar geometry. Additionally, the process will be extremely costly.
When it comes to the question of security, aluminium is second to none. The metal is the clear winner in this category compared to any other. It offers maximum security and reliability which is very difficult for wood to offer.
