Durability

Vinyl windows are very durable and have excellent resistance to ranging temperatures. You don’t have to worry about them warping from the sun heating them. Nor do you have to worry about moisture rotting or producing mold in your windows. They are also very protective against pests and insects, such as termites. 

Lower Energy Bill

Due to vinyl windows’ design, they do not transmit heat, which allows them to keep your house cool during the summer and not let the cold air in during the winter. Keeping your house temperature consistent and not losing heat or cold air through your windows can save you money on your energy bill. There are also coatings that you can get in between the panes of glass that can conserve more energy and save you more money. For more information on that, read our blog about it here.

Low Maintenance

Vinyl windows require very little care to keep them looking and functioning great. Unlike wood windows, you don’t have to sand the frame or worry too much about it chipping or warping. An easy way to care for your vinyl windows is to wash them with soap and water every few weeks and keep them lubricated, and they will last very long and look fantastic. 

Affordable

Modern technology has kept vinyl windows on the lower side of cost while raising durability and energy efficiency. Vinyl windows are the most affordable option on the market today compared to wood, metal, and fiberglass.
