To help you get a better understanding of what to expect with our products, we’ve put together the following information based on the most common questions we receive about vinyl replacement windows:
I Own an Older Home, Will Vinyl Replacement Windows Work?
Yes! Regardless of the style or age of your home, our expert window installers can help you find replacement windows that meet your needs. There are several advantages to putting vinyl windows in an older home – from energy savings to low-maintenance durability. We can also help you choose from our wide selection of window colors and designs to ensure that your vinyl windows add value to your home without taking away its historic appeal.
What is the Lifespan of a Vinyl Window vs. a Wooden Frame Window?
There are several factors that play into the lifespan of your home’s windows, and the material that they are constructed from is a major contributor. In general, our vinyl replacement windows are guaranteed to last a lifetime. Factors such as high humidity, hot climates, and direct sunlight all can affect the overall lifespan of your vinyl windows.
On the other hand, wooden windows have a lifespan of 30+ years. However, wooden windows require a higher amount of annual upkeep and maintenance to continue functioning at their best.
