Can Aluminium Work With Historic Builds?

 When people discuss the aesthetics of aluminium framed doors and windows there are a few words which always seem to be used; modern, clean, contemporary and minimalist for example. These words conjure very specific images in our minds. And while this is not necessarily inaccurate, it is perhaps doing aluminium doors and windows a disservice.

Upon hearing these words people with more traditional, rustic, buildings may dismiss aluminium windows and doors for their projects, thinking that they will not suit the aged aesthetics. However, nothing could be further from the truth.

We won’t try and deny that modern aluminium isn’t the opposite of traditional, however, this contrast works when placed together. Rather than pulling the attention away from the historic nature of the building, the clean aluminium highlights it.

Also, due to the tensile strength of aluminium less of it is needed to support the large window pane. This means that it is a lot more discreet that PVC or wooden counterparts.

Clear View Aluminium Doors work with specialist powder coating companies who are able to coat the aluminium frames in a huge array of colours. This means that you can opt for a colour that either purposefully contrasts with your building, or blends seamlessly. 

If you’re struggling to visualise things, then have a look at our Pinterest board in which we have compiled a collection of beautiful old buildings which all use aluminium framed doors and windows.
