A window is an opening in a wall, door, roof or vehicle that allows the passage of light and, if not closed or sealed, air and sound. Modern windows are usually glazed or covered in some other transparent or translucent material. Windows are held in place by frames.

When home or business owners want to buy low-maintenance windows in California, they often compare vinyl and steel products. Steel is a tougher material than vinyl, so it can withstand harsh weather and strong impacts. Metal windows generally need replacement less often than any competing product. Low-quality vinyl frames may discolor over time. Vinyl normally demands less maintenance than any other material. It can’t rust, won’t rot and never needs to be painted. Metal also requires little upkeep, but it has the potential to rust or corrode. Nevertheless, high-quality frames usually resist this type of decay. Metal withstands flames and extreme heat more successfully than the alternatives.
