I have had aloe plans for years & they have never bloomed any kind of flower. Will they ever bloom ? What will I have to do to encourage the flowers to appear ?

No I have moved them into my home. They are placed on a window sill facing early morning sun. I did have them on my screen in porch several years ago with no sucess. I am open for sugestions. They keep on having small plants poping up all over the place.

leave them outdoors as much of the year as possible and give them as much sunlight as you can get away with without burning them (morning to nearly midday might be best).

I will try that, but not at this time. We are hiting 100 deg. temp. around here in Manassas Virginia; I might lose them in the high heat. Thanks for your information. PS do you think I should use fertilizer on them to inspire them to produce flowers ?

aloes love high heat (to a point... many do not tolerate temps over120F)... mine look great and it's over 100F daily now in my yard. Full sun and high heat may not be a good combination, however. I know little of an aloes need to adjust from room temperature to high heat, though... it might need some adjustment, as it certainly does to go from shade to sun. But it might not, either.
