With a density twice as high as PVC, a hybrid PVC-aluminum window allies performance and durability. Thanks to its contemporary looks and revolutionary design, it offers exceptional quality, regardless of the size or style of the window you’re replacing.
A hybrid PVC-aluminum window is constructed on a PVC base. The PVC on the inside is then overlaid with aluminum on the outside. This type of window was created to satisfy the consumer demand for a product that combines the finish of aluminum with the advantages of PVC.
More specifically, these windows feature a PVC frame covered with extruded aluminum on the outer side. This combination allies the thermal performance of PVC with the rigidity of aluminum. The aluminum exterior also allows you to take advantage of an extensive palette of available colors, while avoiding the higher cost of an all-aluminum window. Many people consider these products to offer the best of both worlds, combining the advantages of the two materials, while minimizing their disadvantages.
The advantages of hybrid PVC-aluminum windows
The aluminum overlay on these hybrid windows offers a top-of-the-line solution for those looking for maximum energy efficiency. In fact, the base of the window, made from PVC, offers maximum insulation, as the material isn’t a conductor, while the aluminum provides impressive durability and a finish that’s extremely resistant to the elements, without warping from the heat of the sun, regardless of the color of the frame. As a result, it’s an excellent option if your future windows are going to be a dark color. Considering that PVC windows offer an excellent thermal break and that the aluminum overlay contributes to their structural rigidity, hybrid windows are ideal for large openings.
