Many homes and business throughout the region have been fitted with a cheaper, lower quality range of aluminium windows and doors. At the time of installation perhaps the developer or homeowner had only a certain budget to work with and so a cheaper option was all that was appropriate at that time.

Cheap aluminium windows can become incredibly hot when exposed to sun, they can rattle in high winds and in terms of security offer virtually none. We have seen many types of cheap window that can be lifted off of tracks from outside the home with very little effort at all.
The majority of people that have experienced any of the above will most likely upgrade from cheap aluminium to a much higher standard UPVC product , often with a double insulated glass panel to maximise the thermo and sound reduction properties. The difference in inside room temperature as well as internal noise levels are staggering! Also with anti-lift on sliding doors in conjunction with multi-lock, a substantial increase of security is added to the building.
