New Window Materials to Meet Your Needs

New Window Materials to Meet Your Needs

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 great insulators.

Fiberglass: With 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.
