PVC windows

It is the optimal solution for all types of buildings: from apartments, through houses (including basements), to office buildings and public facilities. They are durable, stable and depending on the number of chambers, glazing units and other factors, they can be distinguished by excellent thermal and sound insulation parameters. With all this they are light. They are easy to install, which is not insignificant for the construction team.

Plastic windows are easy to clean because they do not require special maintenance, such as wooden windows. They are also comfortable to use, resistant to rain, moisture and chemicals. White profiles do not turn yellow – they retain their color even after many years of use. The color of PVC window frames can be customized to individual customer needs – they can also imitate the grain rings that are visible on wooden windows.

Wooden windows

It is an offer for customers who above all value ecological solutions and have a high demand associated with it, which cannot be satisfied by energy-saving PVC plastic windows. It is also an option for people who care about the special appearance of the house and the natural, warm interior design. Wooden windows are a premium product, which is also associated with a higher price.

Wooden windows, like plastic ones, are stiff, which is why they are great for constructions with large glazing. The wood from which the profiles are made must be of high quality. The windows are durable thanks to the glued construction. The process of their production is complicated, which has its good sides, because the result is a well-refined top-class product.

They are slightly more difficult to maintain because they require maintenance once every few years. The frequency of maintenance depends on the window covering. Scratches or damage caused on them can be easily repaired. Deciding on wooden windows, however, you need to pay attention to the level of humidity in the house – in rooms with a high degree of humidity, wooden windows require adequate protection. Properly cared for can serve dozens of years.

Wooden windows, due to their appearance, give the room a unique atmosphere and make the interior more cozy. They perfectly complement and emphasize wooden decor elements, such as beams or even furniture. They can be in painted or varnished version, with visible grain of natural wood. Like plastic windows, they can be made in any shape, emphasizing the architecture of the building. Wooden windows can be equipped with anti-burglar protection.

Aluminum windows

These are often chosen windows for public buildings and office buildings, but more and more often customers appreciate their advantages and choose as windows for their private homes. Aluminum windows are lighter than plastic or wooden – they are as durable as PVC windows and even outperform them. It might seem that due to the aluminum frame the solution is not energy efficient. Nothing could be more wrong! The use of the latest thermal insulation materials allows for great thermal insulation.

Aluminum is a durable, stable and plastic material, and additionally extremely resistant to adverse weather conditions. The properties of this material mean that aluminum windows do not deform like those made of PVC, which is their great advantage. What’s more, the use of aluminum allows the creation of narrow profiles, so that the glass can be much larger, and thus increase the amount of sunlight in the room.

Aluminum care is extremely simple. These windows do not require special treatment. Once every few months, wipe the windows with a damp cloth and mild cleaning agents, but if the windows are heavily soiled, use cleaning products recommended by the manufacturer.

The colors of aluminum windows are almost unlimited. Models imitating wood have become the most popular, however, the color of natural aluminum is also the color of choice. An interesting solution is the choice of two-colored windows, i.e. other inside and outside the building.
