Aluminum-Clad

One of JELD-WEN’s stand-out qualities is that we offer a variety of window materials, including wood, vinyl, hybrid and aluminum-clad wood. Here is an overview of our two types of aluminum-clad window types.

Hybrid (Aluminum-Clad Vinyl)

Our hybrid window is made of vinyl and has aluminum cladding permanently fastened to the frame’s exterior. Think of it as an aluminum-clad vinyl window. With hybrid, you get the same quality and energy savings as vinyl with a layer of aluminum for added durability.

Aluminum-Clad Wood

Our wood windows come with the option of adding aluminum cladding to the outside of the frame. This way, you get the longevity of our specially treated Auralast® wood, designed to resist rotting, termites and water saturation, with even more strength provided by a layer of stylish exterior aluminum.
