You may already be wondering why anyone would purchase new aluminum windows to replace old aluminum windows. That’s a great question. The answer is because modern aluminum windows are completely different than the single pane builder grade aluminum windows of the past.
Ultra aluminum windows incorporate a thermal break into the aluminum frame and sash which effectively separates the interior half of the window from the exterior half. This insulating thermal break reduces the conduction of heat and cold through the metal frame and practically eliminates the condensation that is common with standard aluminum windows. Aluminum frames are incredibly strong and will never bow or warp in the extreme summer heat as the vast majority of vinyl windows are prone to doing.
Like other modern windows, thermally-broken aluminum windows come with double pane glass, low-e coatings and argon gas to increase their energy efficiency. A low-solar Low-E makes these windows a great choice for Houston homeowners.
In addition to the benefits of strength and rigidity, thermally-broken aluminum windows allow for more glass and narrower frames which enhances the curb appeal of your home. Choose from white, tan, bronze, or silver – all in a durable powder coat finish to withstand the elements.
Proper installation of thermally-broken aluminum windows is critical to prevent excessive sweating or condensation on the frames. Ultra Windows has the experience and the knowledge to ensure your new Ultra aluminum windows meet your expectations.
