If you were selecting windows for your own home and you wanted bronze color exterior, would you go wood clad or vinyl? It's for a farmhouse style home in climate zone 6. Price is lower on the vinyl for sure but I've never lived in a house with wood clad as I've had only vinyl and aluminum. They are double hung windows. All have grids. Budget will work either way. The vinyl is a little better on u values in those I've compared. We do both in homes we build all the time with price usually the driving factor.
