5 main differencies between aluminium and PVC windows
1. Heat insulation.
PVC windows' profiles have a lower coefficient of thermal conductivity compared with aluminum windows'profiles, so PVC windows maintain more heat in the room compared to aluminum frames,but high-end thermal break aluminium windows can reach a very good heat-insulation level in a way.
PVC windows' profile are much lighter then aluminium windows' profile.
PVC windows' profile can only support several conventional color,like white,mahogany,cherry, soft cherry,golden oak, dark oak and Irish oak, cherry, soft cherry and so on,but Aluminium windows and doors can support any color you want.S
Aluminium windows and doors' profile has much higher strength then PVC windows' profile due to the material they use, one is metal and the other is plastic.
which means aluminium windows are resistant to fire and earthquake, and is also resistant to large temperature differences.
Aluminium windows' service life usually can last several decades,like 50 years, but PVC windows' service life is much shorter ，usually 5-10 years,some very high-end PVC windows can last 20 years but it needs frequent maintenance.
