I want to fix aluminium windows to cover the balconeys. Anyone has any contacts I can call? Or a shop I can go to for quotation? If you had done it recently, what is the current price psf now?

I read about white powder coated window. Is it worth the extra cost? Does the paint last long?

White powder coat?.. I don't think so. I believe its some epoxy paint. Powder coating is only in black. AFAIK.
I suppose painted extrusions would be more durable in our weather. Normal anodised aluminum is still subject to some fade or mild surface corrosion.

I think it looks better too. I noticed those English houses basically used white color for those square looking frames for their bay windows. Theirs' are probably wooden frame but here we need aluminium because of the weather.
