How Much Does Double Glazing Cost In Melbourne?

Double Glazing Costs Are Only Partially Why They Are Growing in Popularity

Thermally broken aluminium is commonly used for double-glazed windows in Australia. However, uPVC is becoming increasingly popular and is gradually superseding aluminium as the material of choice, and, it is obvious why.

Comparing uPVC and Aluminium Windows

There are several reasons uPVC is becoming more popular and double glazing windows cost in Melbourne is only a part of this. uPVC is, nevertheless, extremely affordable and usually available at a lower price than aluminium windows with similar performance.

The popularity of aluminium windows has been largely due to them being lightweight and easy to install, having a slim profile, being available in a range of colours and being more durable than wood frames. Their long life and resistance to corrosion and warping have made them a good investment.

Although they have many benefits, thermally broken aluminium frames do have some disadvantages when compared to uPVC. They are more difficult to keep clean and are susceptible to corrosion, particularly from salt, which means they’re not suitable for coastal areas.

The main problem with aluminium windows is they’re made from metal, which has a relatively high thermal conductivity. This means they aren’t as efficient at keeping your home cool in summer and warm in winter, so they won’t reduce your energy bills by anything like the same amount as uPVC. The greater thermal conductivity can also lead to a build-up of mould, which is difficult to remove, and higher levels of noise.

uPVC windows have a multi-chamber construction and so have much better thermal insulation and therefore are extremely energy efficient. They reduce external noise, are very easy to clean and won’t rot, corrode, warp, fade or otherwise deteriorate in appearance. And because they’re steel reinforced, they’re fire resistant and are suitable for areas that are prone to bushfires.
