I just did a cursory glance through some different websites for window manufacturers - the colors for vinyl abound! I found hunter green, a dark pine green, white, black & everything in between. I didn't pay attention to price, only looking for color options. I didn't look for aluminium clad because there was too much to look through.
Visit some of those sites & see what you find. You might be surprised at what is offered out there.

We went with alum clad exterior with wood interior. yes there is alot of work to finish the wood.from our experiance any color other than white or brown in the alum clad was an additional expense per window. for the vinly we were offered a basic 3 choices white,brown and beige. we could get almost any color we wanted from the manufacturer but it would be painted on over white. painting was also a considerable expense. they also gave us the option of painting ourselves to save the expense. i know thre are excellent paints and can paint almost any surface,but i didnt feel comfortable with the paint holding up on the vinyl.so we opted for brown alum clad and finishing the wood interior ourself.
Yeah, I hear that.
But wood is so nice on the inside.......its worth the effort to paint or stain.
I know some of the vinyl anderson windows come pre-finished on the inside.
Remember vinyl will absorb stain if it get on it.
