Vinyl Window Installation & Replacement

Are vinyl windows better than wood or aluminum?

Originally, window frames were all made out of wood. Then, aluminum windows became popular. Today, homeowners are choosing vinyl windows for their homes. All three materials have their pros and con, but the qualities of vinyl windows stand out. For instance, wood absorbs moisture and will rot over time, and aluminum rusts when left exposed to the elements. To avoid this, wood and aluminum windows need to be periodically cleaned and maintained. On average, these frames will only last a couple of decades.

Vinyl, on the other hand, is inorganic so it does not hold moisture and it does not rot. Vinyl is also made from plastic, so it doesn’t rust. Homeowners will be overjoyed to find out that their new vinyl window frames can last twice as long as wood and aluminum ones, even without regular maintenance. Vinyl windows don’t even need to be painted. If you have old wood or aluminum windows, consider having a professional window contractor replace them with vinyl.

Insulation is a hidden benefit to vinyl frames

If you have older windows in your home, you may have noticed a draft coming from them. This is because of the older materials used in their construction. There can be air leaks around the seams of wooden windows and aluminum conducts heat. Both these frames create uncomfortable living spaces in your home. Vinyl alone is more energy efficient. Vinyl doesn’t transfer heat, therefore the frames are constructed in a way that they actually insulate the area around the glass panels. If your windows are costing you a fortune in heating and cooling bills, having an expert install new vinyl windows will be the answer to your problems!
