Vinyl Window Myths Demystified
Windows have come a long way over the last decade or so of home improvement advances. Some of the misconceptions surrounding vinyl as a window material are definitely ideas of the past. Let Allied Remodeling set you straight on the following four myths if you are considering vinyl windows in Towson.
1. Vinyl Only Comes in White
Nowadays, there are a myriad of choices in the vinyl category. From a variety of styles, to colors in any palette, homeowners are sure to find a match for their existing residence. When shopping for new windows, the choice doesn’t need to be between beauty and efficiency. With modern vinyl windows, you can have both.
2. Vinyl Doesn’t Last
Modern processes and advances in material types have made vinyl one of the longest lasting materials on the market. Some manufacturers now offer a lifetime warranty, so you can rest assured that your investment will truly last for generations. Additionally, the best companies offer labor guarantees to match, giving peace of mind of a job well done.
3. Vinyl Isn’t the Most Efficient
While it is true that wood is a natural insulator, it is more expensive, harder to maintain and will eventually need to be replaced. Modern vinyl techniques ensure that your home remains energy efficient for the lifetime of the window. Those windows classified as “low-e” use a microscopic coating to filter out the wavelengths of light that cause heat to enter through the panes of glass. Foam products used as spacers also cut down on thermal transfer. Additionally, some windows are filled with a gas between the panes to further deter temperature loss or gain through the glass.
The materials, technology and science of vinyl as a window material has improved vastly since the first products came onto the market in the 1970s. Today’s homeowners consider vinyl a cost effective, efficient, beautiful option when building or remodeling. Varied styling and an easily maintained, long-lasting product make vinyl windows the right choice for any project.
