Re: Aluminum -Wood Composite Window&Door

With the heat transference of metal, condensation will occur where wood meets metal which will eventually rot the wood. I see no advantage in doing it this way, much preferring vinyl or fiberglass over wood in composite windows since there is less condensation involved. Aluminum is best used structurally in windows, alleviating the need for wood to support it. At a manufacturing level aluminum extrusion is pretty easy to handle and it will give you a much better product.
