sliding patio doors- switch from aluminum to vinyl?
We have 20 yr+ sliding doors to replace in our FR. They are aluminum clad in a bronze color ( Semco). Since the rest of our windows are also in this bronze aluminum cladding, how different would a vinyl-clad door look from the rest of the windows? The bronze color has faded a bit and the replacement doors are west-facing-no trees or sun protection. I've made list of door mfrs to check out, but most seem to be vinyl-clad ( sunrise, okna, gorell)
Will vinyl-clad hold its color over time? Are there any quality door mfrs. who clad in aluminum?
I will not use Semco again or Pella, FYI.
