As a homeowner we know how much windows matter. From curb appeal to natural lighting, a good window can make all the difference. We also understand that windows can make or break your home’s comfort level. You want a home with solid windows to keep you comfortable all year long. Because of this, we’re answering the top questions about vinyl replacement windows.
Will Vinyl Replacement Windows Work for All Homes?
One of the best things about living in Sacramento is the variety of homes. From historic buildings to modern marvels, we have them all. When it comes to the look and feel of a home, we understand that most homeowners want a window that goes with their current home style.
This is one of the reasons we love vinyl windows. They work well with new and classic
homes. Whether you home is more modern or on the older end, vinyl window can be made to fit your home. They also help reduce noise and save energy; they’re a winning solution for everyone.
What is the Lifespan of Vinyl Replacement Windows?
Another reason we love to recommend vinyl windows is due to their lifespan, a vinyl window can last for 20 to 40 years. While you may think to yourself, “40 years is a long time,” it all depends on the conditions surrounding your home and window placement.
Windows that see extreme sunlight or darkness will not last as long as windows in balanced environments. In a city like Sacramento, the lifespan of your windows will be longer than a place that sees extreme weather.
At Bell Brothers, we offer a variety of options that will help extend the life of your windows. From protective coatings to educating you on proper maintenance, we’ll make sure your windows last as long as possible.
How Does Vinyl Compare to Wood and Metal?
As we mentioned above, the sky is the limit when it comes to windows. This also includes materials. Generally, homeowners have three options when it comes to new windows: vinyl, wood, or metal.
When it comes to wood framed windows, the option lies with the homeowners. Wood is durable and can last a long time, but vinyl will last you longer. If you’re looking for greater curb appeal or don’t plan to be in one home for too long, wood might be your best option. But if you want a window that can stand the test of weather and time, vinyl is your best bet.
When it comes to aluminum windows, there are stark differences between metal and vinyl. Though metal windows can last between 20 and 25 years, they often show their wear. Weather conditions such as hail can cause visible damage to aluminum window frames. Metal also tends to rust, which will leave a visible mark on your home.
