Bespoke Aluminium Windows for London Homes
As a bespoke supplier of stunning aluminium windows across London and the Home Counties, at Urban & Grey we believe firmly in the quality and sustainability of aluminium window and door solutions for our customers.
With that in mind, we thought now would be an opportune moment to attempt to dispel some common misconceptions about aluminium glazing and reaffirm just why demand for aluminium systems is higher than ever before across the south-east of England.
Aluminium Windows – Moisture and Condsensation
Although no new double glazed window solution – whether it’s aluminium or PVCu – will 100% eradicate the prospect of condensation, aluminium windows adopt sophisticated thermal break technology that offer the ultimate in energy efficiency for homes. Those experiencing condensation in double glazing may simply need to consider improving the air flow in their home.

Hardwood subframes are NOT required
It is a complete myth that aluminium windows can only be fitted onto hardwood subframes. There are some instances where a building’s original hardwood surrounds may remain as the property owner seeks to maintain the period character of the building, but equally, aluminium windows can be fitted direct to the structure – without the need for existing frames.
Aluminium windows are just as secure as PVCu windows
One of the biggest misconceptions surrounding aluminium glazing systems is that they are not secure because they are externally glazed. Wrong!
In the same manner as PVCu and timber windows and doors, every aluminium system that Urban & Grey sell undergoes independent third-party security testing to PAS 24 and Part Q Building Regulations standards; ensuring they are fit for purpose and can withstand attack from an opportunist burglar.
Aluminium Windows Can Be Customised
Contrary to belief, aluminium windows and doors can be finished in virtually any colour window frames – from metallic shades to pastel colours. This is achieved using a process called powder coating, enabling property owners to choose a window or door design and a colour that truly reflects their personal taste.
Made to Measure Aluminium Windows Offer Great Value
It is a disappointing misconception that aluminium glazing systems break the bank. Reputable suppliers like ourselves will always offer products at the fairest price possible. Equally, their outstanding build quality and performance means that an investment in aluminium windows is an investment for the long-term – they’ll require very little ongoing maintenance.
Durable Aluminium Windows from Urban & Grey
The structural integrity of aluminium windows should never be called into question. Even with thinner frames and minimal sight lines, aluminium frames can hold significantly larger panes of glass than comparable PVCu products. So with stronger aluminium windows you’ll be guaranteed better external views that won’t be ruined by any unnecessarily bulky features.
