Though not as common as vinyl, aluminum windows are another low-maintenance alternative to wood windows.

Many wood windows have an aluminum-clad exterior.

Aluminum windows are less expensive than wood and are in the same price range as vinyl.

The metal structure gives them great strength ‚ĒÄ even more resistant to wear than vinyl.

They will not absorb moisture, swell, or warp.

Maintenance is minimal.

 

 

Aluminum windows do have a drawback in that they conduct heat more easily than vinyl and have a generally lower insulating quality than vinyl windows.



If you choose aluminum windows, make sure that they are constructed with a ‚Äúthermal break‚ÄĚ which diminishes heat conduction.
