Vinyl windows vs. aluminum
I am north of the border in British Columbia and about to build a new house on Salt Spring Island. Any thoughts or comments on vinyl vs Aluminum? All double glazed.
They all seem to function the same. I do know the following
Vinyl are approximately half the price of aluminum ….. with wood finish inside.
Vinyl perform a bit better than aluminum. Vinyl do have a larger “visual” profile. I have read that some vinyl windows do twist a bit. Not sure if this is due to size or what.
Any feedback is appreciated.
