Replacing Old Steel Windows with Aluminium

However, there are certain properties where replacing the original slim steel windows can compromise the overall appearance.

Steel replacement windows in aluminium.

Aluminium Windows are available in an exclusive ‘Steel Replacement’ design. A steel replacement window differs quite a lot from a standard aluminium window.

The perimeter frame and the design of the opening sash are slimmer, to reflect better the thin lines of the original windows. There are even some aluminium systems that have looked at the design of original metal windows and feature virtually the same aesthetics.

With the right aluminium window, you can even choose authentic glazing bars and period handles.
