Aluminum vs. Vinyl Replacement Windows: Condensation
Vinyl replacement windows experience much less condensation than aluminum windows.
This is because the heat conducting properties of aluminum creates condensation – while the tight seals and insulating properties of vinyl keep moisture out and heat transfer down.
Aluminum vs. Vinyl Replacement Windows: Maintenance
Vinyl replacement windows have lower maintenance requirements than aluminum windows. There is no need to paint or stain vinyl windows ever, since they are the same color throughout.
If painted, they will also require regular maintenance and repainting. Aluminum windows must also be lubricated regularly, since their moving parts consist of metal against metal.
Aluminum vs. Vinyl Replacement Windows: Cost
There are a variety of “price points” in both vinyl and aluminum replacement windows – from poor, to fair, good, better and best. So it is important to compare “apples to apples”.
Vinyl Replacement Windows, however, are by far the better value – under any circumstances – and will save you thousands of dollars in the long run.
The energy savings alone from vinyl replacements windows can save you hundreds of dollars a month in utility bills!
When you factor in the higher cost of repainting, repairing, maintaining and replacing aluminum windows they end up costing you much more than vinyl windows in the long run. And in addition to the cost of maintenance, you also have to factor in the time and hassle of getting aluminum windows repaired or repainted.
