Windows are an essential part of our home: it provides us a source of light, allows us to view from the inside (and outside), and even provides protection against the elements of nature. Choosing the right type of windows to complement your design theme is paramount, and here are some of the different types:
- Wooden windows
- Triple glazing

With wooden windows, you are able to complement the interior of your house.

Aluminium windows are a typical installation in most of the modern homes today. The reason for this popular choice? It is lightweight, able to be spray-painted in a variety of colours, can last for a very long time, and it is mainly cheaper. The cost will also be dependent on the thickness of the aluminium and the type of glass used.
Apart from the frame materials (wood and aluminium), there is also the glass to be considered: do you want just a normal piece of tempered glass, or do you want it to be tripled glazed? Triple glazing allows insulation against heat and sound, keeping your house warmer in the winter and allowing you to have a better rest. It will cost more, but in the long run, it will pay off for some people.
