Windows made from vinyl are strong and provide very good energy savings. They are available in a wide range of styles and shapes and have become the mainstream choice in today’s market. They provide the best “bang for the buck” while meeting the current energy tax credit criteria.
Vinyl windows are extremely energy efficient. What this means is if it's cold outside the vinyl does a good job of resisting the heat inside your home from being transferred to the outside. Conversely, if you are in a hot area, and are expending money keeping your home cool, vinyl will perform well by keeping that heat out, and the cool in.
Composite windows and patio doors have colors that won’t fade, flake, blister or peel. So if you’re looking for an affordable, low-maintenance window with dark exterior color options and a beautiful white interior, then you’ve found it.
Other windows rarely feature dark colors, because other frames can deteriorate when exposed to the intense heat of the sun which can cause cracks, bowing and leakage of air and water.
composite windows have the strength of wood and the low-maintenance and low cost of Premium vinyl. Composite windows also have glued corners allowing for very clean joints.
Fiberglass windows are constructed out of fiberglass cloth and epoxy resins, similar to modern boat construction techniques. This results in a smooth, strong finish that can be painted if the home owner eventually decides they wish to do so. Fiberglass is the strongest frame material on the market today. Fiberglass windows lend themselves to larger openings due to greater strength and stiffness properties than other frame materials.
Producing higher R-values, wood windows are unaffected by temperature extremes, and are less prone to condensation, but they require more maintenance in the form of periodic painting.
Most of the wood windows sold, for replacement purposes, are actually, clad windows. What this means is the window has been covered, on the exterior only, with a material that is usually either vinyl or aluminum. The reason for this is to reduce the amount of maintenance needed to keep the exterior of the window in good shape.
Replacement windows made of wood are a very popular choice of material. Many consumers prefer the aesthetic look of wood windows for the interior of their homes. The downside to wood is cost, maintenance required and limited warranty.
Though ideal for customized window design, aluminum frames are not as energy efficient as vinyl or wood and they do not rust and do a great job of resisting weather.
Aluminum windows are very strong are therefore good for commercial projects, oversized windows, and odd-shaped window applications.
Aluminum windows need very little maintenance in order to maintain peak performance.
