Vinyl window frames are becoming more and more popular due to their incredible durability, economical value, energy efficient nature and their unique material composition. Vinyl window frames are made from polyvinyl chloride, more commonly know as PVC. This material is virtually maintenance free, durable and extremely resilient. Vinyl window frames also add value to your home due to the long-lasting qualities the materials possess.
What makes vinyl window frames even more unique is their exact recipe for composition. Manufacturers make their own specific variances to their own vinyl framing recipes; so different additives—depending on the manufacturer—differ, which in turn determines durability. Each additive to a company’s recipe determines the long-term characteristics of the final product, such as weathering capabilities and impact resistance. Make sure to do research and discover the differences of vinyl recipes with window manufacturers. For example, titanium dioxide—an additive—can make the final vinyl window framing product more heat resistant than other designs.
The benefits of installing vinyl windows into your home seem to be endless; not only are they extremely durable, there are:
- Structurally strong
- Excellent insulation sources
- Energy efficient
- Don’t need to painted, stained or refinished
- Reduce noise
- Eliminate condensation
- Easy to clean
- Child resistant
- Eliminate chance of termites
- Increase the value of your home
In addition, new vinyl window fabrication technologies with vinyl frames allow UV rays to pass through color formulation and reflect off the frame itself, which preserves the exterior finish enabling the frames to look new, even years after installation.
Vinyl windows are also extremely cost-effective. Their insulation capabilities trap heat inside your home when its cold outside and keep your home cool when it hot outside, cutting down the energy costs for heating and cooling your home during the appropriate seasons. What are reduced energy costs? Money back in your pocket!
Installing vinyl windows in your home make it an investment. The benefits from installing vinyl windows add value to your home, so over time their cost offsets what you save. Also, if you sell your home having vinyl windows is extremely attractive for potential buyers.
