Facts About Vinyl
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, windows made of vinyl can warp, twist, bow, fade, and crack. In fact, it was stated four times by the department since 1994.
The Canadian Department of Natural Resources Consumer Guide stated in 2005 that temperature is a variable for vinyl, causing it to expand and shrink. The department went as far as to say it creates “cracks for air leakage.”
Canadian Research and Technology in Housing also mentioned in 2005 that vinyl, also known as polyvinyl chloride (PVC), becomes so brittle in cold climates that it can fall apart.
It was found by the Canadian Centre for Energy Technology during the Study of Long Term Performance of Operating Windows that the amount of escaped air increased by 136% in vinyl windows – a rate much higher than aluminum.
The United States Department of Agriculture came to its own conclusion regarding vinyl in 2000, also finding it can tighten, become hard, and break.

Greater mass is found in aluminum than in vinyl, which means that aluminum garage doors and windows can provide greater noise reduction due to blocking out more sound.
