Is PVC better than Aluminium?
Aluminum window frames can be made impact resistant. PVC is impact resistant and weather resistant and must not be painted like wood. In the same time if you want to live healthy with your childs together, it makes no sense to use wood, because it will have an chemical solution like pvc. We as Baertec are recommending everybody aluminium profiles. Of course aluminium windows are better than uPVC. As an result of the material aluminium is better for the house people instead of uPVC plastic windows and doors. It is also to drink better from a glass bottle instead of a plastic bottle which stands some hours under the sun. uPVc is made by the material pertoleum and the heat dissolves the petroleum, that means the uPVC window profiles from the windows or doors will let the gas outside when the sun is shining directly on the uPVC plastic windows. That is also the reason for the unpleasant smell, when you come back from the holidays and the room was closed for a long time. In some countries is aluminium window and door cheaper then uPVC windows and doors.
PVC window frames do not need to be painted like window wood frames. PVC is a recyclable material, as are wood and aluminum. It makes also no sense if you want live healthy if you are using aluminium profiles with different colors for a better design of your house, because the lamination is also made by pvc products. It makes only sense to live with the nature together and if you are using wood windows and wood doors without an chemical solution to protect it against the weather corrusion, but this will be look bad with time or it will be a expensive fun. Your children will thank you for that.
