Replacing steel window

I would like to find out, whether while replacing steel windows, the old steel frame should be used. I had conflicting responses from installers. One installer said they use the existing steel frame and clip the aluminum onto the frame and then install the windows and there's no damage to existing walls. There is no problem with the old frame. The other installer said that if they keep the frame, it warps the new aluminum windows, there's minimal damage to the surrounding brickwork. But the old frame comes out completely and is more sturdy in the long run. I don't know what to do. I thought of avoiding more complications and replacing the whole windows. I am looking for the best windows & doors manufacturers in Canterbury. Is it better to replace the windows?

Why are you asking about windows in a 4x4 offroad forum. Are you another bot?
