Top 5 Reasons to Choose Vinyl Windows

Windows serve both aesthetic and utilitarian purposes, so it’s important to consider both factors when shopping for replacements. Homelife Roofing & Remodeling offers vinyl windows, that offer the best of both worlds. Here are the top five reasons to consider vinyl for your remodel:

  1. Energy Efficiency
    Since up to 70 percent of the energy lost from a home exits through the windows, it’s important to make energy efficiency your first consideration. With advances in technology, the latest vinyl models offer energy efficiency that is second to none. A combination of low-e glass, other glazes or tints, foam insulation and multiple panes ensure that thermal transfer is at the lowest rate possible.
  2. Variety of Styles
    Gone are the days when vinyl only came in white. Now, a variety of colors, styles and options are available to match any home or decorating style. Finding a match for your project, or a new set of windows that will add beauty to your home inside and out, is easy.
  3. Durability and Maintenance
    Traditional windows made of wood or aluminum are subject to cracking, peeling, denting and discoloring. Wood windows also require yearly maintenance to keep them looking good and working well. With vinyl, maintenance is almost non-existent and the material can withstand extremes of temperature, as well as a few impacts and still look flawless and remain efficient.
  4. Lifetime Warranty
    Because vinyl windows are so durable, many come with a lifetime warranty. The longevity of vinyl makes is unparalleled among other window types. Vinyl is an investment that will last a lifetime.
  5. Cost
    Another advantage is the lower cost. Vinyl can cost a mere half of its wood equivalent, making it an affordable option for many homeowners. Considering initial cost savings alongside decreased utility bills means many homeowners can quickly recoup the price of new windows through utility bill savings.

Installing vinyl windows is the best way to maximize style, efficiency and durability. All this comes at a fraction of the cost of other windows and adds beauty to any residence.
