If you are in the market for new
windows, there are a number of details to take into
consideration. Whether you take in
different climates through the year, or have a specific
visual preference, a number of window materials are available
for you to pick from.
Here’s a quick overview of window
materials to consider when you kickoff your research:
Wood: For homes with varying weather, wood window frames are an undeniable choice. As for
eye-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 an iconic
look that will complement 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 looking
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 versatility, vinyl windows are
the insulation and visual qualities of a quality
painted window, fiberglass is a great option for new
window buyers. Fiberglass is a long-lasting and weather resistant material known for
its protection against extreme
heat and cold. As a newer type of window material, fiberglass is gaining popularity in the market due to its
successes, durability and the ability to be painted
for style purposes.
