There are several reasons vinyl windows—one of the most popular window options on the market—would make a great addition to any home. Vinyl windows are cost-effective, impact-resistant and come in a wide variety of bold colors.
Here are some other facts you might want to know about vinyl windows:
The main appeal of a vinyl window installation is its low maintenance needs. This quality alone makes vinyl windows a smart choice for homeowners who don’t have a lot of time for window maintenance. An occasional wash is all that’s needed to remove dirt and grime that’s accumulated on the surface of the window frame.
Vinyl windows are also a great choice if you’re trying to go green. Disposed vinyl frames can be melted and remolded into new products, reducing the amount of construction debris that ends up in landfills.
Here’s another thing you should know about vinyl: It’s pliable, meaning it can be molded into almost any shape. This part of the reason why vinyl windows come in a wide variety of design options. However, some homeowners consider vinyl’s pliability as a disadvantage. Pliable material is less durable than more rigid material such as wood, right? This may have been true in the past, but manufacturers have since made improvements to vinyl windows. Modern vinyl windows are capable of supporting wide glass panes and resist scratches and dents.
If you’re planning on installing vinyl windows, here’s a tip: Look for window frames with thicker material and several interlocking chambers. The thickness of the material should give you a good idea of the window’s durability. And to make sure your new vinyl windows are installed properly, only qualified
doors and windows installers should handle their installation.
