Window frames can be made out of several different materials. Often, they are made out of vinyl. Vinyl is a popular choice because it is one of the least expensive options. Vinyl windows have been popular since they appeared on the market in the 1970s. Vinyl can be used for many applications and be made into a wide variety of shapes and sizes.
Vinyl is not as durable as wood but still quite durable. Vinyl windows are less expensive and will last you for at least 20 years. Moreover, they require no maintenance since they do not need to be painted or scraped regularly, unlike wood. That alone might be a deciding factor for you.
New vinyl windows will improve the energy efficiency of your home. When you save on energy costs, the windows will quickly pay for themselves. The insulation the vinyl in the frame provides, increases the energy efficiency significantly.
Quality window brands such as Andersen, Pella and Simonton have high-quality vinyl windows in their product lineup. These brands offer different series and choices you can pick from. Windows from these brands are especially energy efficient and durable.
New windows will not only increase the energy efficiency but also the overall comfort of your home. The windows will reduce drafts, hot spots and condensation. Vinyl windows are especially good at blocking out noise as well. Additionally, new windows will enhance your home’s appearance and resale potential. You are sure to love the look of your home with new windows!
Great Vinyl Window Choices
One of the great things about vinyl window frames is that they can come in a big variety of colors and sizes. Cleaning them is very easy and it is the only maintenance required. Vinyl windows are also quite durable and usually come with great warranties.
Vinyl windows look very sleek and modern, have a smooth texture and even color. The color retention is usually great and they weather well, especially if the windows are of good quality and name-brand products. They will definitely make your home look great and updated.
When it comes to styles, you have a huge variety of choices with vinyl window frames. They come in all popular style varieties, including the following:
- Double Hung Windows
- Single Hung Windows
- Casement Windows
- Bay Windows
- Picture Windows
- Sliding Windows
- Single Slider
- Double Slider
- 3-Lite Slider
- Awning Windows
- Bow Windows
- Glider Windows
- Garden Windows
Of course, custom fit windows are also always an option. Our team from Colorado Siding Repair is happy to look at your space and help you pick the right window with the right fit, every time. We can also explain all of your options and the difference between the styles to you.
In addition to the different styles you can choose between single, double or triple paned windows. The more layers of glass, the better the protection and insulation. Which one you pick will again depend on the room, the energy efficiency you are looking for and your budget.
After you decided which vinyl window you want to have installed, you also get to pick the hardware to go with it. That is purely a preference of look and design that you get to make depending on your taste. Some choices include satin nickel and bonze hardware finishes but they vary by manufacturer and brand.
