Replacing your home’s windows is a surefire way to make a huge visual impression and add value to your home. The two most common types of replacement windows are wood and vinyl. Wood windows are the traditional option, but they’re pricey and require a lot of upkeep (painting every few years, for one thing). A great — and affordable — way to update the look of your home is with new vinyl windows. Vinyl is a popular option for windows because of its durability, affordability and ease.
The Basics of Vinyl Windows
Vinyl is made out of PVC, a type of plastic. First developed in the 1970s to compete with more expensive wood windows, vinyl windows have grown in popularity to where they now account for roughly the same market share as wood windows.
Kraz Construction has been serving Northwest Indiana homeowners for more than 90 years, including the installation of vinyl windows. We pride ourselves on staying up to date with products, styles and home renovation trends. Vinyl has proven to be a high quality, affordable option for many local homeowners.
Why Choose Vinyl Windows?
Wood windows are more durable than vinyl, yes, but they’re more expensive and require regular maintenance. If you’re looking for an affordable update to your home’s exterior (and your energy bill!) consider replacing your windows with vinyl–it’s easy on the eyes AND your budget! There are several advantages to choosing vinyl.
1. Low Maintenance
Wood windows should be re-painted or stained every three to four years to protect against the elements. Over a 20-year span, that’s more than 5 paint jobs you’d have to tackle! Vinyl windows require zero scraping or painting during their lifespan.
Vinyl windows last for more than 20 years.
3. Energy Efficient
Save money on energy bills due to insulation within the vinyl window frame.
People think wood windows allow homeowners more options, because they can be painted. Vinyl windows can’t be painted, but they can be customized, too! There are dozens of color and style options to fit the look of your home. Do you like the look of wood? Vinyl windows can also be outfitted in a woodgrain laminate, including realistic looking maple, cherry or oak styles.
Over time, vinyl windows are a better buy. According to the 2019 Cost vs. Value report, vinyl windows cost almost $4,000 less than wood windows and recoup your money at a 68.4% rate compared to wood windows’ 66.9% rate.
