Vinyl…A Good Deal!

By August 28, 2017No Comments

Vinyl is the most commonly installed window frames found in homes of all ages in the Murray, UT area. What makes vinyl windows so special? In terms of versatility, vinyl has wood and fiberglass beat hands down. Vinyl windows are composed of PVC (polyvinyl chloride). Thanks to its durability, vinyl can easily hold its own against direct sunlight and remain a long-lasting frame that will compliment your home’s style.

Best Deal in Town?

Known to be pretty low maintenance, you certainly won’t have to paint your vinyl windows. Just clean them periodically! In fact, all things considered, vinyl windows are more affordable than wood, aluminum, and fiberglass counterparts. No matter what window style you want on your Murray, UT home, it can likely be made from vinyl.

To that end, vinyl windows aren’t all the same quality so it’s important to consider how to recognize quality vinyl windows when shopping for replacements. One of the best ways to determine if you’re looking at quality Murray, UT vinyl windows is to take a look at the cross-section of the frame. Make sure to count the chambers and note how large they are.

Keep in mind that vinyl windows come with a different number of chambers, which makes the windows more durable and weather resistant over time. Some vinyl window frames are fastened together with screws and caulk, while others are welded. The welded windows are more reliable during installation and they last longer too.

Built to Last

Vinyl windows are tough and built to last! So when shopping for vinyl windows, some of the best options available will have what is known as a “double lifetime” warranty. If you ever entertained the idea of one day selling your home, that warranty on your vinyl windows is quite the coverage. These warranties will cover the windows against possible problems during your use and will cover another homeowner if you decide to sell your home. And the real benefit is in the increased value of your home.

Speaking about vinyl’s durability, pay attention to the glass on the vinyl windows you select to make sure it is double or triple pane and that it’s treated with coating to be as efficient as possible. If you’re looking for a low-maintenance, affordable window solution, then vinyl is a good fit for you.
