If you are in the market for new
windows, there are many details to take into
consideration. Whether you encounter
different climates throughout the year, or have a specific
visual preference, a host of window materials are available
for you to pick from.
Here’s a quick overview of window
materials to ponder when you begin your search:
Wood: For homes that experience different weather
throughout the year, wood window frames are an undeniable choice. When it comes to visual appeal, the style is timeless.
Wood is a blank canvas enabling you to finish to the
style of your home. It allows you to get a stylish
look that will complement future redecoration
projects. Many wood windows have
aluminum or vinyl cladding on the exterior, which can lower
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 well-made
painted window, fiberglass is a great option for new
window buyers. Fiberglass lasts a long time and is made
of weather resistant material known for
its protection against severe
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.
