Vinyl Window Defined

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC), or vinyl, is the world’s second most used plastic polymer, made from ethylene and chlorine. All vinyl window frames are made using vinyl as their base material. However, not all vinyl is created equally. The secret to a high-quality vinyl window lies in the additional components included in the manufacturer’s compound formula. Our vinyl windows go beyond the basic recipe. They include specialized UV stabilizers that reflect sun rays to keep the materials from breaking down and titanium dioxide to ensure the final product is heat stable and high performing.

With over 30 years in the window industry, time has allowed us to determine the vinyl window manufacturer’s who deliver the best blend of quality and price, or best VALUE for you. Our chosen manufacturer partners create value in four essential areas: consistency of quality and service over the years, level of warranty support to you, industry longevity, and product innovation.

Comparing Vinyl to Clad-Wood and Fiberglass Windows

When compared to our other window materials, we consider vinyl windows to be a perfect middle-of-the-road material choice. 

While fiberglass windows are more energy-efficient and durable than vinyl, they are also significantly more expensive. Our vinyl windows offer an impressive level of performance at an affordable price, making them an excellent high-quality window for budget-conscious homeowners. 

 In contrast to fiberglass, our clad-wood windows offer almost identical performance levels, yet they fulfill the needs of homeowners who desire an interior wood finish. In this sense, the difference between the two materials is primarily aesthetic. However, vinyl windows are, once again, the more economical option due to the difference in materials.

Vinyl Window FAQs

What is the downside of vinyl windows?

If vinyl windows do have a downside, it would have to be the tendency for the vinyl materials to expand with changing temperatures. While it’s not common, this expansion can lead to seals and joint failures over time. On the other hand, vinyl is much less likely to warp when compared to wooden windows, and they won’t dent like metal window materials. 

Do vinyl windows decrease home value?

On the contrary, due to the high performance and design options, vinyl windows generally increase most home values, especially those with older inefficient windows. It’s possible for vinyl windows to decrease home value if a homeowner downgrades them from a higher-quality material like fiberglass or when installed in an older home where vinyl windows appear unattractive. 

How many years do vinyl windows last?

Vinyl windows have an impressive lifespan of 20 to 40 years when well maintained. 

Which is better fiberglass or vinyl?

When comparing the performance of the two different materials, fiberglass is inarguably a “better” material than vinyl. However, when considering the price difference between the two materials, the argument about which material is “better” really boils down to your budget and personal preferences. 

Should I replace all windows at once?

While it’s certainly not necessary to replace all your windows at once, you will receive a better price when ordering them in quantity than replacing them individually.
