4 Advantages of Vinyl Windows

Are you considering updating your windows? Vinyl window frames are an affordable alternative to wood, aluminum and fibreglass ones. Among other things, they’re durable, attractive and energy-efficient. Here are four simple reasons to choose vinyl over other materials for your window frames, and how a professional window installation service can help increase the value of your home and save you money.

 

Cost

Vinyl frames have become an affordable window option for homeowners. On average, vinyl windows can be anywhere from 20 to 50 percent less expensive than windows made from other materials. In fact, when you take into consideration vinyl’s durability and efficiency, it’s the best deal around.

 

Looks

If you put a vinyl-frame window next to a wood-frame window, you might not notice a difference. This is because some modern vinyl frames so closely resemble the grain and texture of natural wood, that the casual observer would think they were wood. Vinyl frames come in a variety of styles and colours and you can choose a design that will complement your home.

 

Durability

Over time, wood frames can deteriorate and rot due to seasonal weather changes. Vinyl frames, however, can withstand the extreme Canadian weather and endure the elements for many years. This is because modern vinyl is as strong as any other material and can be reinforced to make it even stronger. Properly maintained, vinyl windows can last up to 40 years and not fade or yellow.

 

Efficiency

Vinyl frames are energy efficient and have relatively low thermal transfer, which means they help keep cold air out and warm air in. In fact, vinyl window frames can help prevent ice from forming on and around your windows, thereby keeping your walls dry and your home warm. Combine vinyl frames with an Energy Star glass product for even more energy savings. Energy-efficient windows offer superior performance and can save you money on your energy bills.
