Vinyl Windows - The Smart Choice
Vinyl windows first came onto the market around 30 years ago. Back then, there were only a couple of colour and style options available. Fast-forward to today and vinyl windows are at the top of the list when it comes to new home builds and residential replacement windows. Why the new popularity? What makes vinyl windows so appealing? There are a number of reasons. Here are a few:
- Durability and low maintenance.
Vinyl is a strong, wind and water resistant material that will last decades. Unlike wood windows, vinyl does not require regular maintenance, such as painting or staining. Vinyl is also a type of plastic and is known for its longevity and maintaining it’s shape. Wood windows tend to warp, splinter or bow over time.
- Energy efficient.
The thermal properties of vinyl windows combined with their insulating qualities make them extremely energy efficient. When properly installed and sealed, their airtight abilities prevent energy leakage as they keep air and moisture out and heated or cooled air in. A variety of glass options and special coatings also enhance the window’s ability to ensure the outside elements remain outside.

- Environmentally friendly.
Vinyl material is one of the highest recycled materials today. A very high percentage of vinyl windows and doors are broken down and recycled to create new windows and other new products. The windows come in double and triple pane, both of which add to the home’s low carbon footprint by helping heating and cooling systems run more efficiently. Also, monthly energy bills are substantially reduced right after a vinyl window upgrade.
Vinyl windows and doors are the most affordable replacement window option on today’s market. They also come in a wide price range available for every homeowner’s budget. With the energy savings, replacement windows pay for themselves over time. Also, with government rebate programs readily available, the initial investment will be substantially reduced.
Today, vinyl windows come in a multitude of colours and styles that will match any style of home. They are also very flexible and can create a custom fit. They add exceptional curb appeal with their streamlined look. In fact, a new set of vinyl windows will dramatically create an updated new look to a home, which in turn adds property value.
