Vinyl windows are a popular choice among many homeowners due to their affordability, ease of maintenance, and crisp aesthetic. Vinyl windows were first constructed in the 1970’s. They are made of rigid, impact-resistant polyvinyl chloride (PVC) with hollow spaces inside to help prevent heat loss and condensation.


Some benefits of vinyl windows include:



Vinyl is very easy to maintain since it requires no staining, varnishing, or painting like its wood counterpart. They are virtually scratch free and can be kept clean with a vinyl cleaner or soap and water.


While energy savings vary due to climate, local energy costs, and energy-efficiency of the previous windows; vinyl windows can help to cut down energy costs by regulating indoor temperature and airflow.


Vinyl is an extremely versatile material and can be used for many applications and is very cost effective. In addition, according to “Remodeling Impact Report”, average-quality vinyl windows can recoup up to 80% of their investment.


Vinyl windows are a good option for your home since they can increase your home value, require little maintenance, are affordable, and can cut down on energy bills.
