Aluminum Cladding

Aluminum cladding refers to the covering on the exterior of a window and door unit. The aluminum covers the entire exterior of the window or door, protecting the product from the outside elements and reducing the amount of maintenance required. Aluminum cladding is available in a wide variety of colors, including custom color matching, and does not need to be painted.


A window or patio door can come with a wood interior and/or wood exterior. When the product is built with a wood exterior, the wood must be primed and painted. On the interior, the wood can be stained or painted, depending on your preference.
