Picking Materials for Replacement Windows for Your Rochester, NY, Home

Materials for Replacement Windows Rochester NY

If the windows on your Rochester, New York, home aren’t performing how you would like them to, then it’s probably time for a window upgrade. While having replacement windows installed comes with a number of benefits, it also raises a lot of questions, chief among them—which material should you choose for your new windows? In our opinion, when picking materials for your replacement windows, vinyl is the way to go. This material offers incredible value and delivers all-around performance.

In terms of longevity, vinyl windows are tough to beat. After all, it’s no accident that they’re the most popular type of window on houses in the United States these days. Vinyl—or polyvinylchloride, to call it by its proper name—is an incredibly strong and long-lasting material. This means your new windows will keep their shape for many years, even in the face of extreme temperature fluctuations. They will also resist wear and tear from snow, ice, prolonged sunlight exposure and other harsh conditions. Vinyl is very low maintenance which means you won’t need to scrape, sand, or repaint it like you might have to do with wooden-framed windows.

Also from an aesthetic standpoint, vinyl is a great window material to choose. Since vinyl is a synthetic material, it can be formed into just about any shape or size much more easily than wood, metal, or fiberglass. So, if you’re looking to have geometric-shaped windows installed in non-standard sizes, vinyl frames will give you the most freedom to customize.

Our Happy Clients

I purchased Sunrise Windows last year for a house I was flipping. I believe the windows were a big reason the house sold for nearly 100% of the asking price. This is a great company. I would recommend this company's products to anyone.

Toledo, OH

I had all my windows and both doors replaced at the same time to my older (built in 1958) home by the folks at Sunrise and am very satisfied with the selection, service and installation! I’d recommend Sunrise to anyone renovating their older home.

I replaced 32 windows in my home with your windows, they are fantastic!! For the last 10 years have been putting in windows on remodels with a contractor friend of mine, and my Sunrise Windows are the best we've done. They lowered my energy bills both summer and winter and the style window I picked worked out perfectly with the window trim/molding that we put in. They look so nice and work flawlessly so far (6 yrs).

No more drafts and lower hvac costs. Real quality. Check with experts who engineer glass, as I did. They look great and visitors actually notice and comment. Just a happy customer. Nice job guys!

I had Sunrise Windows installed in my home in 2000. We started noticing some of the wood lament on the windows started peeling. Sixteen years later, Sunrise honored their warranty and replaced every window. This is a stand-up company.
