Their insulating properties are outstanding, on par with wood, so they are a better choice in areas subject to very cold winters, very hot summers, or, especially, both. Quality clad windows vs. inferior ones can affect the value, safety and comfort of your home for many years. Some come with a 10, 20 or 30 year warranty, and even a lifetime or double lifetime warranty. Sometimes that warranty is not transferable to a new property owner, and with others it is. The biggest concern you should have when replacing with clad windows should not be the cost, but the warranty, stability and strength of the manufacturer that you choose.  With so many in-house and small manufacturers, will they still be around when you need to use your warranty?
