Custom Replacement Aluminum Windows & Doors in Houston
Aluminum Windows and doors are extremely functional, virtually maintenance free, and complement the attenuated clean lines of modern design, while adding a nice “face lift” to more traditional styled homes. They have proven to be three times as strong as vinyl and more than forty times as strong as wood. While this strength protects windows from high winds and other inclement weather, it also increases the window space and allows for greater design versatility. Another notable feature, especially living in a city as large as Houston is that Aluminum windows outperform both wood and vinyl windows at noise abatement.
If you have a more modern or contemporary home the sleek clean lines of Aluminum Windows, Sliding Patio and Storm Doors may be the perfect fit for your architecture. Our Aluminum collection includes Single and Double Hung, Casement and Storm Windows in Bronze, Tan, White, and Silver as well as Sliding Patio Storm Doors. If you are looking for a durable option for your new or replacement windows Aluminum is an excellent choice.

Don Young Aluminum Windows
Thermally Insulated Aluminum Windows
Not all aluminum windows are the same! The Don Young Company’s commercial-grade aluminum windows feature a thermal break that separates the inside metal from the outside metal with very high-density catalyzed polyurethane. Generically, this engineered design is called “pour and de-bridge” in reference to the extrusion process. The Don Young Company just calls it PolyPour. These windows set the aluminum lines apart from conventional, old-fashioned typical aluminum windows that have no thermal breaks. Among those that do, be careful to make sure you notice the differences. For example, Don Young Company features wide thermal breaks in the jambs, heads, sills, and all sashes of the windows; and the breaks align for maximum thermal performance. Lesser windows have thinner breaks, may not align, and may even have no thermal break in their sashes or sills. PolyPour windows from Don Young Company fight condensation and have significantly better insulating values than any cheap “builder grade” aluminum window.
