Dear purvi

       Aluminum frame is better choice as detail below

 Aluminum frame provide beauty, warmth and style.      Aluminum frame are most environmental friendly in comparison of wooden frame.    They have long life have no effect of rust, corrosion and termite effect.    Clean easily simply by dusting and washing.  They have less maintenance cost.      Aluminum frame are good choice for commercial building and offices.     They provide weatherproof quality.

Aluminum frame require no any periodical or annual expenditure on paint or polish

I wouldn't  choose wooden frames for bathroom obviously because the humidity will damage the molding the frame. On the rest of the house you can go for aluminum wood or other options like composite PVC, vinyl, etc. depending the climate where you live. Each window and door frames respond to particular climates and standards, in some areas are needed weather insulation in others noise insulation and in some situations like historic buildings wood elegance is the topic.

My personal preference is window magic India doors and window frames simply because the color match is very similar in the white and the quality is spot on. halo are also good and easier to get a better energy rating because it is a five chamber system but you can get a c rating with windows.

and I think that the wooden frame better. aluminum is still metal and it can rust and deteriorate. My neighbor bought from aluminum and had to change a couple of years. Well treated wood better aluminum.

here's  I found information about the wooden:

the materials used for window blocks are fir, pine, larch, mahogany and oak.

Larch is one of the best building materials possessing high level of durability and resistibility to natural phenomena influences. Due to the combination of high density of wood and excellent resistance to rotting larch is practically not subject to damage caused by insects.

Research has shown that the inner structure of a fallen tree may stay intact for several centuries. Many constructions made of larch 300-500 years ago have preserved to the present day.

windows

Larch is also water resistant. The City of Venice was constructed on platforms raised above water, and resting on piles made of Siberian Larch. After 1400 years some of the piles were inspected. It turned out that larch piles serving as a base for the underwater part of the city have become so hard that cutting them either with an axe or with a saw is next to impossible. An Italian historian Tentori, the author of "History of Venice" wrote that the prosperity of Venetians was conditioned by the durability of larch pile constructions.

Pine is the most commonly used material for production of our windows. The durability of pine windows does not concede that of windows made from oak. Pine wood possesses high mechanical properties and has remarkable level of stability in all climatic conditions.
