5 Benefits of Vinyl Windows

Vinyl
Your windows have seen better days. Luckily, you have many replacement options. There are casements, single hung models, awning styles, and so much more. However, the style of the window isn't the only decision you need to make.
Should you choose a wooden replacement window or go with vinyl? Even though they both have their advantages and disadvantages, vinyl is a modern option that offers plenty of benefits.
Keep in mind, not every window meets every home or business owner's need. However, if you're in the market for new windows, take a look at what vinyl can do for you.

1. Low Maintenance

Wood windows can provide a traditional feel that is timelessly classic. However, they also require major maintenance. You'll need to paint wooden windows, stain them, and make sure that the windows don't peel, crack, or chip.
Vinyl windows offer a much lower maintenance option - and you won't have to sacrifice form for function. Instead of painting or staining, vinyl comes as is. This means the color you choose is the color that the window stays. There's no need to paint, coat, or seal the frame in any way. These windows are ready to go the moment that the contractor installs them.
In addition to avoiding painting and staining issues, you won't have to worry about using special cleaners on or scratching the vinyl. Simply wipe the windows clean with a mild soap and water mix. Even though you shouldn't scrub your windows harshly, most vinyl products can withstand normal use without scratching.

2. Durability and Aging

The typical wood window has at least a 30-year lifespan. In comparison, many vinyl models can last for 40 years.
Vinyl windows are hardy and they can stand-up to the weather without cracking, peeling, or falling apart. 
In addition, vinyl windows aren't likely to rust or corrode in the way that aluminum or other metal materials would. This type of durability can extend your windows' life, giving you your money's worth.

3. Design Options

Maybe you want an oval window to fit in a very specific space, or perhaps something that's more of a rectangle. Vinyl can help. Vinyl windows come in a variety of sizes and shapes and can fit almost any area. 
Beyond the shape and size, vinyl windows come in plenty of color options. Again, you won't have to paint these windows to change their hue. From plain white or beige to custom colors, you can pick a shade that matches your home's d├ęcor.

4. Price Point

One of the main advantages that tip the scales in favor of vinyl is the price point. Vinyl is a material that is typically less expensive than wood when it comes to replacement windows.
Even though vinyl costs less than other materials, that doesn't mean it's cheap. Vinyl windows combine undeniable aesthetics with quality at a price that's often dramatically lower than most homeowners expect. If it seems like you're getting bargain windows that won't last, then think again. These windows won't make you sacrifice any of the items on your must-have window list for their price.

5. Environmentally Conscious

Due to the material make-up of these windows, vinyl is something that can be recycled later on. If you swap out your windows years down the road, the vinyl doesn't have to end up in a landfill. This fact makes vinyl an environmentally friendly option.
