Types of Replacement Windows for Your Home

Posted on February 28, 2015.

Replacement Windows for Your Home

When you make the decision to have a window replacement done in your home, there are many things that you need to consider. Choosing what type of windows you want is chief among those considerations. There are a few different types of windows to pick from that all have different advantages and disadvantages.

Wood Frame

Wood frame windows are a traditional and vintage look. Many older homes have wood frame windows. While these can have aesthetic appeal, they are not very efficient windows. Unlike newer windows, these are rarely UV treated and are not very good at keeping the cold out of your home. Also, the wood frames are prone to swelling in hot weather, making them harder to open when you need them open the most.

Vinyl Frame Top quality vinyl windows are an excellent purchase for any home. They are extremely energy efficient, meaning they help keep you warm when you want to be warm and cool when you want to be cool. They are incredibly durable and difficult to break or even damage. They are also very pleasing to the eye. These frames are typically white, but many companies offer variations and customization options to make sure you get the windows you need to fit into the look and feel of your home.

Fiberglass Frame

Many companies offer window replacement featuring both vinyl and fiberglass options because they are very similar, but subtly different.Much like vinyl windows, fiberglass windows are durable, energy efficient, and beautiful. What sets fiberglass apart is the fact that they are a little better than vinyl. Fiberglass windows are more energy efficient, as they can save you up to 30% on your energy bills. They are also of a more sound and attractive build quality, so they look all the better in your home.

A window replacement is a large enterprise that can drastically change the look of your home. Whether you choose wood, vinyl or fiberglass framed windows, they can all have a huge impact on your day to day life.
