Aluminium window maintainance

Postby rsharma_champ » November 6th, 2017, 12:15 am

I had finalized on aluminium windows for my house, however after reading a bit I am worried about their maintenance. e.g. what if the powder coating peels off or anodized layer breaks down? Can it be re-painted?

Earlier I had though of going with uPVC but ditched that option considering > 20 years lifespan of aluminium windows. But now I feel that wooden windows can have the longest lifespan with frequent paintings (every 3-4 years, the reason for which I had not chosen them earlier).

Please suggest if wooden is the best choice considering 30-40 years of lifespan?

Thanks
Rahul

Did some more research and visited lots of factories / workshop, finally selected Domal-40 aluminium windows (1.4-1.5 mm sheet thickness) with 25 micron anodized coating. No maintenance needed at all.

I think that is the best option. What are the quotations you got?

Rate is a bit high, almost 900 per sqft. However considering no maintenance at all it is cheaper in long term.
