If you are on the hunt for new
windows, there are many details to take into
consideration. Whether you deal with
different climates through the year, or have a specific
visual preference, a host of window materials are available
for you to choose from.
Here’s a quick look at window
materials to consider when you begin your search:
Wood: For homes in
multi-climate areas, wood window frames are an undeniable choice. As for
eye-appeal, the style is ageless.
Wood is a blank canvas allowing you to finish to the
style of your home. It allows you to get a classic
look that will look great with future redecoration
projects. A lot of wood windows have
aluminum or vinyl cladding on the exterior, which can reduce
external maintenance too.
Vinyl: If you’re searching for low maintenance, vinyl is the window material for
you. This frame material comes in different shapes, sizes and colors to help your style on a budget. Complete with
sharp lines and flexibility, vinyl windows are
the insulation and visual qualities of a durable
painted window, fiberglass is a great possibility for new
window buyers. Fiberglass can last a long time and is made of weather resistant material known for
its ability to guard against extreme
heat and cold. As a newer type of window material, fiberglass is gaining
traction in the market due to its
successes, durability and the ability to be painted
to match your style.
