Hemet Replacement Windows

Selecting the right framing material for your Hemet replacement windows can be a very important step in the process. The right frame can make a big difference in the look of your California replacement windows. It can also make an impact on the efficiency and durability.

Aluminum Frames

Aluminum frames for Hemet replacement windows are an old standard. Aluminum has long been used in all sorts of framing, especially in Hemet home construction. There are several reasons for this. First, Aluminum is inexpensive. Having an inexpensive material in any CA home improvement project is good for your budget.

But their affordability is not the only reason you should consider framing your California replacement windows in aluminum. In addition to being cheap in price, aluminum is also very sturdy. Frames made out of this material will withstand the test of time. They are very resistant to chips and they will not warp.

Additionally, there is not much maintenance required with aluminum window frames. Wooden frames from replacement window companies must be sanded, varnished and sealed regularly in order to maintain their look and extend their life. Aluminum frames need very little maintenance. The occasional oiling and reparation of the mechanical parts as needed, and regular cleaning is really all you need to keep your aluminum framed Hemet replacement windows in top shape.

Another benefit to purchasing replacement windows with aluminum frames is that they can be painted. Other replacement frame types such as vinyl cannot be painted. Vinyl frames can also be affordable, but whatever color you purchase is the color you are stuck with for the life of your Hemet replacement windows. Aluminum on the other hand is easily painted and repainted as many times as you like. Some people even like to paint the inside of the frame to match the décor of the rooms in their California home, and the outside frames of their replacement windows are matched to the trim of the house. This additional versatility is a definite benefit to aluminum frames.

Drawbacks to Aluminum Frames

As you can see, there are many values to purchasing aluminum framed Hemet replacement windows. However, there are a few things you want to be aware of before you make your decisions. This is not to say we are trying to dissuade you from selecting this framing type for your Hemet home. Every consumer should be aware of the enhancements and the pitfalls of any product they are considering before they actually buy it, and we want you to be informed.

Like any other product on the Hemet market today, aluminum frames do have some pitfalls. The first of these involves energy efficiency. Aluminum is a metal, and as such conducts heat. This can make your replacement windows less energy efficient when the CA weather is warm than other types of frames will.

But, depending on the amount of sun exposure your Hemet window gets, this very consequence can be a blessing in disguise. On a cold winter day, an aluminum frame can generate more warmth for a room if it is exposed to more solar heat. If your CA windows are in a sunny location, you may want to do a little research before you decide against putting Hemet replacement windows with aluminum frames in these places.

A good way to start is to compare your average summer electric bills to your average winter ones. Do you tend to spend more energy (and therefore money) on cooling your Hemet home down in the summer? If so, you will most likely prefer to opt for a different framing material on your Hemet replacement windows.

If in fact you find that your winter heating bills cost more than your summer cooling ones, you may want to rethink things. Aluminum frames are an excellent way to help increase the warmth in your Hemet home during the winter, without any added costs once the installation is complete. You may even end up saving money in the long run as you find you use less energy to keep your home comfortable in the cold winter months.

Another thing that makes aluminum less desirable than other kinds as a framing material for your Hemet replacement windows has to do with their aesthetics. Let's face it, aluminum frames aren't the prettiest. They are dull and drab, and lack much of the visual appeal that other frame materials have.

While this can be remedied for some by a quick coat of paint, it has its drawbacks. Paint can chip, flake, and fade. Once you commit yourself to painting your aluminum frames, you will have to repaint them regularly (every 1-5 years depending). This is definitely something you will want to consider when selecting the frame style you want for your Hemet replacement windows.
