If you are on the hunt for new
windows, there are a number of details to take into
consideration. Whether you deal with
different climates during 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 think about when you start
Wood: For homes that experience different weather
throughout the year, 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 a classic
look that will complement future redecoration
projects. Many wood windows have
aluminum or vinyl cladding on the exterior, which can decrease
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 you be stylish on a budget. Complete with
sharp lines and versatility, vinyl windows are
the insulation and visual qualities of a well-made
painted window, fiberglass is a great choice for new
window buyers. Fiberglass can last a long time and is made of weather resistant material known for
its ability to guard against severe
heat and cold. As a newer type of window material, fiberglass is gaining popularity in the market due to its
successes, dependability and the ability to be painted
to match your style.
