Steel windows and doors have been around for centuries, and yet are timeless in slick design and uncompromising strength.
The issue really though is the maintenance and the many costs attached to it. However modern technology allows us to enjoy the narrow sighted lines of the steel & glass with out having to put an annual maintenance budget in place.
Steel windows and doors now days are galvanized or electroplated and then powder coated to give you a beautiful smooth finish. Instead of putty, we use the Nu-glaze PVC beading which is design to look like putty. Glass is secured using structural silicone.
