There is no write or wrong answer here. Vinyl, Fiberglass and Composite windows are all excellent options. My recommendation would be to start this process is by prioritizing the things that are most important to you about your windows. If energy efficiency is the most important factor than narrow down you list of eligible windows based on energy ratings such as LOW-E, SHGC and, U-VALUE. Cost might be the most important factor or maybe style and color options. If you narrow down your search in this manner, you may find that there is one of each kind of window that meets your criteria. If this is the case, then take a look at manufacturers warranties, local availability and installation requirements. I hope this helped.
