If you are on the hunt for new
windows, there are a lot details to consider. Whether you encounter
different climates through the year, or have a specific
visual preference, a variety of window materials are available
for you to select from.
Here’s a quick look at window
materials to consider when you kickoff your research:
Wood: For homes that experience different weather
throughout the year, wood window frames are an undeniable choice. Visually, the style is classic.
Wood is a blank canvas allowing you to finish to the
style of your home. It allows you to get an iconic
look that will complement future redecoration
projects. Most wood windows have
aluminum or vinyl cladding on the exterior, which can lower
external maintenance too.
Vinyl: If you’re wanting low maintenance, vinyl is the window material for
you. This frame material comes in different shapes, sizes and colors to help your style on a budget. Complete with
sharp lines and flexibility, vinyl windows are
the insulation and visual qualities of a durable
painted window, fiberglass is a great option for new
window buyers. Fiberglass can last a long time and is made of weather resistant material known for
its ability to shield against severe
heat and cold. As a newer type of window material, fiberglass is becoming more popular in the market due to its
successes, reliability and the ability to be painted
for style purposes.
