5 impressive benefits of aluminium sliding sash windows

The benefits of installing aluminium sliding sash windows include great durability and strength, but let’s take a look at these benefits in further detail. 

  • Cost effective

Aluminium sliding sash windows are a cost effective alternative to timber sashes. Although the initial cost may seem a little more pricey, aluminium sliding sash windows are built to last a lot longer than the timber alternative.

  • Durable

Aluminium windows are extremely waterproof and rust resistant. The typical lifespan of an aluminium sliding sash window is around 30 years, however they tend to last a lot longer than this. The timber alternative is susceptible to warping and rotting, making the lifespan of a wood sliding sash a lot shorter.

  • Easy to maintain

Once your aluminium sliding sash window is installed, you’ll no longer need to worry about it. Timber alternatives require a lot of maintenance, needing regular treatment to remain weatherproof. Aluminium sliding sashes do not require any additional maintenance to keep them strong and durable.

  • Thermally efficient

Aluminium sliding sash windows are proven to reduce heat loss by up to 60% so you can enjoy a comfortable warm home and low energy bills. Aluminium sliding sashes deliver greater thermal efficiency than most wood or uPVC options. 

  • Eco-friendly 

Aluminium is a fully recyclable material and it’s also non-toxic. So, you can enjoy your beautiful new windows without worrying about your impact on the environment, because there’s hardly any.

The cost of aluminium sliding sash windows

The cost of aluminium sliding sash windows is dependent on a lot of different factors. Here’s a few to consider:

The size of the window 

If you’re opting for a larger window, there’s more materials needed for the job. This means that the cost will be higher than if you opted for a smaller window.

The number of windows 

The more windows you need to install or replace, the higher the cost. However, at Mercury Glazing, we care about our customers and provide them with the best deals. If you’re having multiple windows installed with us, we’ll discount the price. 

The glazing

Whether you’re opting for single, double or triple glazing, these all vary in price. Although triple glazing is the most expensive of the three, it’s worth mentioning that this will offer greater insulation, reducing energy bills by up to 50%, making it a worthy investment. 

The glass
