If you are in the market for new
windows, there are many details to consider. Whether you take in
different climates throughout the year, or have a specific
visual preference, a variety of window materials are available
for you to select 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 ageless.
Wood is a blank canvas permitting you to finish to the
style of your home. It allows you to get an iconic
look that will look great with future redecoration
projects. Most wood windows have
aluminum or vinyl cladding on the exterior, which can decrease
external maintenance too.
Vinyl: If you’re wanting low maintenance, vinyl is the window material for
you. This frame material comes in different shapes, sizes and colors to fit
your style on a budget. Complete with
sharp lines and flexibility, vinyl windows are
the insulation and visual qualities of a durable
painted window, fiberglass is a great choice for new
window buyers. Fiberglass is a long-lasting and 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, durability and the ability to be painted
to meet your style needs.
