Aluminium conservatories – the premium glazed extension

If you’re planning a glazed extension project, you’ll certainly have been considering which material is best for you. One of the most important things to consider is your budget. Aluminium conservatories, in general, are more expensive than uPVC alternatives. This increased cost, however, is easily outweighed by several factors.

Firstly, aluminium has a far greater lifespan than uPVC. Where uPVC conservatories will begin to deteriorate in terms of appearance and performance after around 20-25 years, aluminium conservatories can last around twice as long as this because of the inherent strength and durability of the material. Aluminium is also highly customisable. Although manufacturing aluminium is currently more expensive than manufacturing uPVC, with aluminium you have far more choice with regards to the design of the aluminium conservatory.
