Comparing Aluminum and Vinyl Windows

Both aluminum and vinyl windows are more durable, low-maintenance, and less expensive than most other materials. With that said, both vinyl windows and aluminum windows have areas where they shine more than the other. Vinyl windows, for example, are known to be more traditional in appearance than aluminum windows. Though both are available in a wide selection of window types, vinyl windows are typically thicker than aluminum frames and offer options of smooth, textures, and faux wood finishes. Aluminum windows can also sport the wood look but it would be less realistic due to the nature of their frames.

Another factor to consider is overall strength. Both window types are resistant to cracking, scratching, and marring, but aluminum windows are, in general, stronger than vinyl windows and more impact-resistant due to their more robust structural integrity.
