Aluminium Windows Vs Timber Windows: Which is More Suitable for my Sussex Home?

When it comes to choosing the right windows for your Sussex home, the options can be overwhelming. Both aluminium and timber windows offer unique benefits which suit different preferences and requirements.

At Sussex Glazing, we’ve put together a blog to help you make an informed decision to best complement your home’s style and needs.

Aluminium windows

Aluminium windows have gained popularity for their modern and sleek appearance, making them an excellent choice for contemporary homes. At Sussex Glazing, we offer a wide variety of aluminium windows, including tilt and turn, casement, and heritage windows, which are installed to the highest standard.


Aluminium windows are known for their durability, providing robust protection for your home. At Sussex Glazing, our aluminium windows are sprayed with a marine grade powder coat, giving them a long-lasting finish no matter where your windows are installed.

These windows are also equipped with a range of high-tech locking mechanisms, keeping you safe and offering you peace of mind in your home.

Low maintenance

With their inherent resistance to rust, corrosion, and warping, aluminium windows require minimal upkeep, making them an ideal option for busy homeowners.

Thermal efficiency

Our aluminium windows are designed to provide excellent insulation. Our windows are made with the latest thermal barrier and advanced profile technologies, which will keep your home warm during the winter and cool in the summer, helping you to reduce your energy bills.


Aluminium windows are available in various profiles and colours, allowing you to find the perfect match for your home’s aesthetics.

Timber windows

For homeowners seeking a classic and timeless look, timber windows are an excellent choice. At Sussex Glazing, we offer high-quality timber casement and sliding sash windows, which provide a slick and stylish finish that enhances the aesthetics of any property.


Timber windows exude charm and character, adding a touch of elegance to any home. Our slim sash windows maximise the area of glass on show, creating a visually appealing facade.


At Sussex Glazing, our timber windows are highly durable and are sourced from timber that has been engineered to withstand warping. Our timber requires less maintenance, meaning there’s no need to sand or varnish your windows every few months.

Energy efficiency

Wood is a naturally insulating material with a low thermal conductivity, keeping the heat in and the cold out. Our timber windows are installed with high-performance double glazing to reduce heat loss and lower your energy bills.

Conservation area

Buildings in conservation areas will have strict guidelines to follow and timber works best for achieving a more authentic look. If you live in conservation areas like those in Shoreham-by-Sea, Kemp Town, Southlands or another Sussex conservation area, timber windows are the perfect option for you as they match the character, and their properties mean you don’t have to compromise on performance.

Choosing the Right Windows for Your Sussex Home

Ultimately, the choice between aluminium and timber windows depends on your personal preferences, budget, and the architectural style of your home. If you’re looking for a contemporary, low-maintenance option with excellent thermal efficiency, aluminium windows may be the perfect fit. On the other hand, if you desire classical elegance and value environmentally friendly materials, timber windows are the perfect choice for you.

At Sussex Glazing, we offer a wide range of window options to suit your needs. Whether you opt for the sleek and modern appeal of aluminium windows or the timeless style of timber windows, you can trust us to deliver high-quality products and professional installation.
