Durable, inexpensive, and easy to maintain, vinyl window frames are made from extruded and tempered PVC and are available in a broad selection of colors. Most types of vinyl frame are designed with a hollow core to reduce heat loss and condensation. Over time, low-quality vinyl frames may experience air loss.
Fiberglass windows offer unmatched durability and versatility, built to perform throughout the years with the ability to withstand heavy and frequent use. Many manufacturers have embraced glass recycling techniques in fiberglass production, making it an environmentally responsible option with many factory colors for both interior and exterior unlike white or tan interior for vinyl.
The traditional material for window construction, wood provides excellent insulation against temperature and condensation while offering classic natural beauty. Wood windows are generally sold unfinished, allowing the purchaser to stain or paint them to taste. Wood frames tend to have a shorter operating life than synthetic materials, and provide limited fire resistance.
Lighter, more durable, and easier to handle than wood, aluminum windows are long-lasting and available in a wide variety of colors. Aluminum provides superior weather resistance, but generally requires a layer of vinyl or foam composite to reduce heat loss, which is referred a thermal break system.
