Aluminum Window and Door Frame Benefits

For years, architects and builders have specified aluminum doors for their overall strength and lasting value. Because of their rigidity, durability and narrow frames, aluminum doors can be configured into a wide variety of combinations that maximize views. Aluminum doors are also popular because of their low maintenance. They won’t rust or rot, you don’t have to paint them and they’re available with tough anodized or baked-on finishes. The downside of aluminum doors in the past was that they weren’t very energy efficient. Aluminum readily conducts heat and cold. In cold weather, your home’s heat can seep out. Today, better quality aluminum doors equipped with thermal breaks separate the interior and exterior surfaces of the windows to improve their energy efficiency.
