5 Reasons Your Next Door Should Have Vinyl Windows
Are you considering putting in a new entry door in your home? Perhaps you are looking into installing patio doors for the spring. While there are many types of entry doors, there are also many options for windows. So, before you decide on that new entry door, look at the doors that offer vinyl window options. They are long-lasting, money saving and eco-friendly! If that doesn’t sell you on them, then read on as we go into detail about why you should choose vinyl windows.
There’s Variety in Vinyl
Although vinyl may bring back some memories from your record-playing, big-hair days, vinyl has come a long way. Now, you can purchase multiple colors or grains of vinyl windows. You can also purchase these windows in different shapes, such as, octagonal, ellipse or half-circle windows. An unconventional shape or grain on your window can help your new entry door to stand out from the rest on your street!
Made to Last
The colors or grains of vinyl windows are specifically made to not fade. High-end vinyl windows even have a specific substance in them that keeps the windows from yellowing, and also keeps them strong.
To Move or Not to Move
As there are many types of entry doors, there are also many types of vinyl windows. You can choose to have the windows fixed, or mounted within a frame. These types of windows do not offer ventilation but they still let in a lot of sunshine. On the other hand, you may choose to purchase vinyl sliding windows that not only let in the light but also let in the fresh, outdoor air.
They Keep the Heat
Most people do not know where the term “vinyl” comes from, but it in fact refers to polyvinyl chloride, or PVC. PVC is impact-resistant and due to the hollow spaces found within it, is resistant to condensation and heat loss. Is your heat bill higher than it should be? It’s probably time to get vinyl windows, as they can save you money in the long run.
They’re Eco Friendly
With so many CO2 emissions being produced by our cars and factories daily, it’s important to take into account whether or not a product is environmentally friendly. Not only does vinyl save heat, as stated above, but it also takes about 20% less energy than other plastics to produce. So, not only are you saving energy in your own home (by conserving heat), you’re also helping the environment!
So, next time you go to look for a new entry door, think about the many positives of vinyl windows. You may choose to visit your local home improvement store, or you could look into finding a local vinyl windows company, which might offer more variety as well as vinyl window installation.
