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.
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.
