The Benefits of Vinyl Windows

Upgrade Your Home’s Look and Efficiency

Many homeowners throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania choose vinyl for their replacement windows, and we recommend them here at NexGen Exterior Home remodeling as well. The benefits of vinyl windows are extensive and include affordability, a low total cost of ownership, and a long product lifespan with little to no maintenance required. The installer you choose is just as important as the product, and NexGen is an established and trusted window installation contractor. We sell only the best windows with the top warranties, and our vinyl window installers are all highly skilled and experienced.

What Are Vinyl Windows?

In order to appreciate the benefits of vinyl windows fully, it helps to understand what this product is. Windows have traditionally been made from wood, but vinyl windows are made from polyvinyl chloride, which is abbreviated PVC. This is one of the most popular construction materials in the world because it’s strong and durable while also being relatively inexpensive. Another benefit of PVC is that it is a 100% recyclable material. There are three main types of windows made using vinyl: standard, engineered, and composite. Standard vinyl windows are made entirely of PVC and are the least expensive option. Engineered vinyl refers to proprietary blends that have additional ingredients that strengthen the PVC and give it additional properties, and composite windows incorporate vinyl and one or more other primary materials. A popular example of composite is a wood-clad window, which has a real wood interior and thus all the benefits of a wood window but a vinyl exterior for ease of maintenance.

A Closer Look at Vinyl Window Benefits

As mentioned, one of the top benefits of vinyl windows is price. These windows are much more affordable than traditional wood windows, and that can make a significant difference when you’re replacing all the windows in a home. Vinyl windows also have an expected lifespan of between 20 and 40 years, and that means that they provide an excellent total cost of ownership too. These windows also require little to no maintenance unlike wood windows, which have to be repainted and reglazed. Vinyl windows are resistant to ultraviolet radiation, moisture, and heat. They’re also very energy efficient and available in a wide range of colors and designs while also providing excellent sound dampening.

Improve Your Home’s Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency is one of the notable benefits of vinyl windows, and many of the products we sell have earned Energy Star certification. These windows have a high thermal resistance and a high U-factor in particular, which is a measure of heat loss. In other words, investing in energy-efficient windows will make heating and cooling your home cheaper over the lifespan of the window.

The Best Replacement Windows

Curb appeal is an important consideration when investing in new windows that you’ll be looking at for decades to come, and among the most important benefits of vinyl windows is that they’re available in an extensive variety of styles and colors. All window types are made with vinyl as well. That includes traditional hung windows but also casement, sliding, awning, and much more.

Single-Hung Windows

Single-Hung Windows

Single- and double-hung windows look the same, but these have just one operable sash. That makes them more affordable but more difficult to clean, so they’re generally reserved for the ground level.

Double-Hung Windows

Double-Hung Windows

The typical American home will have more double-hung windows than any other type. These windows have two independent operable sashes that can be angled into the home for easier cleaning.

Casement Windows

Casement Windows

Casement windows minimize the framing to maximize the space available for the glass. They’re also hinged on the side, which allows them to open out like a door and typically use a crank handle.

Awning Windows

Awning Windows

Awning windows are similar in design to casement windows but oriented horizontally rather than vertically. A key advantage of the awning style is that you can open them when it’s raining.

Bay Windows

Bay Windows

Bay windows are windows that project outward from a structure, creating a bay-like alcove inside the room. They add natural light and ventilation to a room while also adding a unique architectural feature.

Geometric Windows

Other Window Types

NexGen can install all residential window types, including those custom-made for your home. Other types that we install include arched, geometric, hopper, louvered, and picture windows.

Signs You Need New Windows

Age is the leading reason windows need to be replaced, and we encourage homeowners to replace their windows proactively rather than in response to a problem. You should also keep an eye on your windows and watch for problematic signs. Drafty windows are costing you money each month. Excess moisture is going to develop into a more serious problem over time. You should also replace windows that are difficult to open or close or which have damage to the glass or frame that is more than superficial.
