I am trying to choose a window package. I am leaning toward a fiberglass option and an aluminum clad/wood option.
Both of these are about 3x as expensive as vinyl, and the fiberglass window, to the untrained eye looks about the same.
So I am wondering why does vinyl get such a reputation? Is it just the fact that it associated with cheap houses. PVC is obviously a little gross and the color choices are not good, but to save $10K is tempting.
Any thoughts here?
