Vinyl windows: Weighing Your Options

When considering whether or not vinyl windows for your Benicia, CA home suit your needs (and that of your home), the best approach is to weigh your options. There are many things to consider. From a budget perspective, how important is cost to you? Or perhaps energy efficiency trumps all cards. Or perhaps the issue is structural and you are dealing with leaky/drafty windows that you want replaced. At the other end of the spectrum are aesthetic concerns: do you want added beauty/looks? Do you want windows that are easy to maintain and clean? What type of warranty are you being offered? Is safety and security a concern? Are you concerned about health and mold, rot, and creating a healthier living environment?

New or replacement windows are all about options and you need to weigh each one carefully when searching for a new window upgrade.

Welcome to the Big Time

With newer machinery and technology, higher-end vinyl windows now offer stunning new looks and beauty that were never before possible. Vinyl windows are commonly white in color, but with wood grain interior color options and many companies offering a PVC exterior bond (painted) option, more colors have become available to satisfy any consumer.

In fact, vinyl windows don’t require any kind of maintenance for your Benicia, CA home, just some light cleaning for which any household cleaner can be used. Aside from them being cost efficient, vinyl windows became popular because of their long life span. They can be painted or polished to look like wood because of the addition of sawdust in the vinyl making process. With the introduction of cellular foam in vinyl, vinyl windows have become resistant to rot and decay.

And what about the competition?

Wood windows offer great beauty and natural looks, but are many times very expensive in cost and not as energy efficient as high-end vinyl. Fiberglass windows offer some impressive thermal ratings and are often portrayed as being stronger than vinyl. However, many fiberglass windows are not as strong structurally as higher-end vinyl windows and can cost significantly more.

An Investment That Lasts
When investing in your home, it’s important to research and understand what option is best for you and your family. If many of the questions above relate to you, consider high-end Vinyl Window Benicia, CA as the best option for your family and home. The overall design of a window can really make or break the window and energy efficiency and security should be at the top of your list.
