What Are Vinyl Windows?
Vinyl windows are windows made out of Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) which is a plastic material. They are a more affordable option to wooden windows while still offering the same durability as they won’t rust or corrode over time. Vinyl windows also offer great energy efficiency when installed correctly and may even improve the value of a home. Call J-Tech for professional vinyl replacement window installation today.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long do vinyl windows last?
One of the main benefits of vinyl windows is their longevity. Vinyl windows will usually last anywhere from 20 to 40 years. Different types of vinyl windows will last longer than others, but to reach the upper end of that timeframe, make sure to take good care of them by keeping your glass and frames clean, caulking any damaged areas, and painting when necessary.
Can you paint vinyl windows?
Yes. Vinyl windows can be painted, but it is a difficult surface to stick to. Some older methods said that sanding your vinyl window frames would make the paint stick, but now you can get a special type of paint that sticks to the surface of the vinyl frames. Acrylic paints and latex paints, for example, are known for working well on vinyl.
What’s the difference between vinyl and aluminum windows?
Aluminum and vinyl windows are both popular, but they each have their own distinct advantages to consider before choosing which is best. Both are durable and require little ongoing maintenance, but aluminum is more prone to rusting, so those types of windows will require more cleaning. Furthermore, vinyl window costs are typically much lower than aluminum, allowing you to save on upfront window installation costs.
