Are Aluminium Windows Suitable for Coastal Areas?

Living on the coast can be idyllic, offering stunning views and spectacular sunsets. However, the Great British weather can be harsh on the coastline, giving homeowners the full brunt of storms, wind, rain, and with sand added in, it can cause severe damage to your client’s homes too.

We are often asked if aluminium windows are suitable in coastal areas, so let’s address this together once and for all, along with a few more frequently asked questions on attractive aluminium windows.

What are the best windows for coastal properties?

Harsh coastal weather can damage properties over time, and this includes doors and windows. Aluminium is highly weather-resistant and won’t rust or fade, and won’t be easily damaged from wind, rain, or storms either.

Aluminium windows are reliable and durable with inherent strength supporting large glass panes, making the most of those beautiful coastal views. You can achieve stunning panoramic views by offering slimline frames, giving trade customers a real wow factor to their work.

Aluminium windows are indeed the best for coastal properties, offering incredible views with long-lasting frames; it is an all-around window solution for anyone living on the British coastline.

Any property within a 5-mile radius of the coast is classed as being in a marine environment, therefore, you need marine-grade windows to stand up to the harsh weather conditions. Powder-coated aluminium windows are a marine-grade material that can contend with coastal conditions.

To keep your coastal aluminium windows in tip-top condition, it is good practice to powder coat the frames. It is essentially an extra layer of protection against the elements. It will even help reduce any maintenance, improve saltwater resistance, and lasts up to 35 years with little to no upkeep.
