Wood & Vinyl Windows
When choosing the type of window for your home, deciding between wood or vinyl can be difficult. Wood brings a natural, strong and classic look to a home yet require more maintenance, while vinyl provides a wide array of styles with lower maintenance. Each have pros and cons, but can provide energy savings, ease of functionality, and a refreshed look and feel to your home.
Genuine wood frames help to insulate a home better than almost any other kind of window. Real wood provides 400 times more insulation than steel window frames and 1,800 times as much as aluminum-frame windows. The additional insulation that real wood provides can help keep a home warm in the winter and cool in the summer and can save the homeowner on utility bills all year round. Wood-framed windows also provide an excellent barrier to outdoor sounds much more so than virtually any other frame.
However, wood frames require more ongoing care, painting and maintenance that other options and are a greater investment to purchase and have installed. Wood frames that have not been properly cared for can twist slightly or can swell with moisture, making it difficult (if not impossible) to raise or lower the window.
Vinyl windows have become the top choice across the nation for a variety of reasons. Quality vinyl windows vs. inferior ones can affect the value, safety and comfort of your home for many years. For instance, unlike wood windows, vinyl windows don’t require painting and are scratch and rot-resistant. These features make for low or no maintenance and added durability. Often, vinyl windows are pre-fabricated which both greatly reduces the price and simplifies installation. Vinyl windows come in a wide variety of colors and that they are completely customizable. For the energy conscious, energy efficient vinyl replacement window can help reduce the overall cost of cooling and heating your home. They can fade with time and are not made to absorb paint or stain. So, the color you buy is the color you stick with. The texture might not be suited for every house because it has a more plastic-like look.
