If you’re looking into replacing your windows, one of your best options is vinyl windows. In this blog, window and roofing contractor Blue Square Roofing & Construction, LLC shares the advantages of vinyl windows.
Vinyl windows are the gold standard for low maintenance requirements. They come with molded-in colors, which means they do not require repainting and all the preparatory work that’s done before it. It can save you the cost of buying paint and equipment, or the cost of hiring a professional to repaint it.
Dirt and dust do not stick to vinyl, so cleaning vinyl windows is as easy as rinsing with water from a garden hose. Stubborn dirt can be removed using a soft brush and a mixture of water and dish detergent. Also, most vinyl window styles have tiltable, removable, or reach-around sashes, which allow safe window cleaning while standing indoors.
Variety of Styles and Colors
As an extruded material, vinyl can be manufactured into virtually any profile, color and shape. This gives you a wide selection of window styles and colors that make it easy for a window and roof contractor to match the rest of the house. Combined with an even wider selection of hardware styles and finishes, finding the right vinyl windows for your home is easy.
The right kind of windows can help prevent drafts and other forms of heat leaks, which lead to high energy bills during seasons with extreme temperatures. Thanks to its inherent insulation, vinyl windows can help reduce heat leaks and maintain consistent indoor temperatures. This can help reduce the required output from your heating and cooling systems, resulting in lower energy consumption. Insulated windows also have sound reduction properties, which helps make your indoor spaces quieter.
Polyvinyl chloride, or simply, vinyl, can be recycled repeatedly without degrading. New vinyl replacement windows typically contain a significant amount of recycled material, making it one of the most environmentally-friendly building materials in use today. Glass and hardware are likewise made from recyclable materials. With proper disposal, only a small fraction of waste material from old vinyl windows will make it to landfills.
