You don’t have to settle for lackluster windows and doors. Whether you’re in the process of building a dream home or have been renovating for some time, the advantages of custom aluminum window and door options are virtually endless. Tostem India believes that’s part of what helps us supply some of the best windows on the market.
A Little History: The Evolution of the Aluminum Window
Aluminum windows are an excellent choice for any home, especially ones with large expanses of glass. Aluminum is a low-maintenance and durable material that provides better thermal performance than wood, fiberglass, or vinyl. Also, aluminum windows offer many more design options than other materials. The original windows were first used in commercial buildings like factories and warehouses and are now commonly used for high end homes. In the 1940s, aluminum windows were introduced to the residential market where they gained popularity very quickly due to their affordability and low maintenance costs. Today, there are a variety of aluminum designs available ranging from small sliding doors to large expanses of glass.
Aluminum windows are a great alternative to the traditional glass window. While they may be used in any location, they are especially popular for outdoor applications such as patio doors or deck enclosures. Aluminum windows are made of extruded aluminum profiles with a framed insulated glass unit or a fixed panel. These materials create a very durable window that can be used in an array of applications, but it is important to know how to properly maintain these windows so that they can last for years to come.
The mill finish available on our aluminum door frames today is the most durable and easy to clean option. Over time, the surface will not discolor, chip, peel or fade. It also prevents serious issues such as peeling by providing a more resistant surface for paint options. The ability to customize your color, design and hardware options with this material makes it truly your own.
Thanks to their affordability, energy efficiency and durability, aluminum windows and doors are a popular choice among homeowners. While the popularity of these products has increased over the years, so has their availability. But what many homeowners may not know is that today’s aluminum windows are more environmentally friendly than ever before.
What are Some Advantages of Aluminum Windows?
Aluminum windows and doors are the most popular product choice for homeowners today. In addition to offering exceptional durability, strength, and energy efficiency, these windows and doors provide energy savings that far exceed other types of materials. Window World is the industry leader in environmentally friendly, high-performance and low maintenance aluminum products!

You won’t ever need to spend time repainting or resealing these windows and doors. Traditional materials don’t work well with durable coating, plus you’ll get a more narrow profile for bigger views with less bulky material surrounding it.
Aluminum windows are some of the most durable and long-lasting options on the market today. They are ideal for areas with extreme weather conditions and a range of temperatures. They will not warp, crack, or split over time like other window materials. In fact, aluminum has been shown to last up to 50 years as long as it receives regular maintenance from professionals who specialize in window repair and replacement services
