Beautiful windows on a home can instantly increase its visual appeal to guests and potential buyers. Old, cracked windows can make even some of the most gorgeous homes look dated and less inviting.
When looking into window replacements, many homeowners wonder whether they should purchase wood or vinyl windows. Nevertheless, the decision is much easier than one might think. Here are some of the reasons why vinyl windows replacements may be the best choice!
Vinyl windows are very low maintenance
Forget painting or sealing! Vinyl windows require very little maintenance after they are professionally installed. On the other hand, wood windows have to be painted and repainted to maintain their appearance. With vinyl, the color you choose before installation is the color they’ll stay!
Vinyl windows are much cheaper.
On average, a vinyl window should cost around 25% less than a wood window. This is mostly because fewer manufacturers are producing wood windows. Therefore, not only will you save money on maintenance, but also on initial cost!
You won’t have to worry about rotting or termites.
Termites can be a major threat to wood windows. In the case of an infestation, you could find yourself having to purchase all new windows, which could cost you hundreds of dollars and hours of work. Vinyl windows are resistant to environmental threats such as this, including corrosion, rotting, and air pollution. This is yet another way that choosing vinyl can potentially save you money in the long term!
However, if you are considering a window replacement and want the look of wood windows, Aspen Home Improvements offers Starmark windows, which have the look and feel of authentic wood windows without the maintenance! Starmark is also extremely energy efficient and provides excellent insulation.
