The balcony is one of the most difficult places in the apartment. For full use, it must be glazed — otherwise, for several months a year it will simply be inaccessible due to frost and snow, and it will not work to create any cozy corner on it.
The Sophos Windows company, which has been manufacturing and installing window systems for twenty-five years, offers its customers glazing of balconies and loggias using aluminum or plastic frames. What features does each option have?
What to choose for a balcony — aluminum or PVC windows?
When choosing a material, you need to decide what kind of goal you are pursuing in the end. Conventionally, the glazing of loggias and balconies is divided into two categories — insulated or “cold”.
An insulated balcony can play the role of a full-fledged additional room — even in winter it will be possible to relax on it with pleasure. Usually in the process of such work, plastic windows are used. However, it must be borne in mind that making a warm balcony is more expensive and more difficult, besides, not all structures are designed for the installation of heavy insulation materials and double-glazed windows.
A “cold” balcony will be protected mainly from dampness and wind, but the temperature on it in winter will still drop very much. However, furniture and things on a cold-glazed balcony will remain safe, they will not have to be removed. With such glazing, double-glazed windows with aluminum frames are used and no additional insulation is installed — the design is lighter, cheaper and more affordable, and it is very convenient to use.
Sophos Windows can carry out glazing according to both of the presented options — the choice depends only on the wishes and capabilities of the customer. However, the most popular is inexpensive and fast aluminum glazing.
Aluminum double-glazed windows — a universal solution for the home
Speaking of aluminum windows, one cannot fail to mention aluminum glass doors- another interesting solution for the house.
Interior doors often reduce space too much, reduce the level of natural light. Glass doors with aluminum frames give the house a very stylish look and make it several times more spacious — and since aluminum is very light, such doors are easily mounted into openings. Okna Sophos is ready to take on the execution of the project and the direct installation of doors — you can see examples of work in the company’s gallery.
