If it is time to consider replacing the windows in your home, you have likely been investigating the pros and cons of various types of windows in order to decide upon the best replacement windows for your unique situation. While wooden, aluminum or fiber glass framed windows are all acceptable options, there are a number of benefits of vinyl windows.
Vinyl windows offer a number of advantages over other types of windows, some of which include:
- Perhaps one of the most popular reasons that individuals choose to have vinyl windows installed instead of other types of windows is energy efficiency. While other window options allow for a significant amount of outside air to transfer into your home through the glass, the seals and even the frames, vinyl replacement windows are extremely effective in preventing such an occurrence. Metropolitan’s vinyl windows are equipped with High Performance LoE² glass that is specifically designed to optimize your climate control system as well as the heat from the sun. Additionally, they are equipped with the Swiggle Seal Warm Edge insulating glass sealant system that provides unmatched performance when it comes to preventing loss of argon (the insulating gas found in between the window panes).
- Ease of maintenance is another one of the important benefits of vinyl windows. Not only are vinyl windows simple to clean; often only needing a simple wipe down with vinyl window cleaner or even soap and water, but they don’t require the hassle of painting and scraping, nor do they wear or age like other types of replacement windows.
- Vinyl windows are available in a wide variety of completely customizable options and price ranges, so locating exactly what you are looking for couldn’t be more simple. Choose from a multitude of colors, shapes, sizes and types to ensure the perfect match for your home.
- Surprisingly, affordability is one of the key benefits of vinyl windows as well. Not only are vinyl replacement windows often less expensive than other types of windows when you initially purchase them, but their long lasting durability means you won’t have to replace them nearly as often, either. When you combine those two factors with the amount you can save in energy bills when you choose vinyl replacement windows, the savings can really add up.
