All You Need to Know About Vinyl Windows in Dayton

Oct 05, 2018

When it comes time to replace your Dayton windows, vinyl is a popular choice for many reasons. Vinyl windows require little maintenance, are generally cost-effective, and offer a modern look for your home. With so many window options, you should decide whether vinyl could be the right option for you and your home. Refer to the following pros and cons of vinyl windows to get a better understanding of the benefits of vinyl and a few circumstances when it may not be the best option.

In Favor of Vinyl Windows

Affordability. Vinyl windows are one of the most affordable window types in the Ohio market. They cost far less than wood and fiberglass and are just as energy efficient.

They’re easy to install. Another appealing aspect of vinyl windows is that they are especially easy to install, particularly when they are replacement windows. Because it is a flexible material, you can have vinyl window frames made to size, which allows faster, more effective window installation. Compared to installing wood or fiberglass windows, installing vinyl is less messy and takes less time. This is more convenient for you and your family, and it can save you some money on labor costs for installation.

Vinyl windows don’t need lots of maintenance. Because they don’t come with the risk of peeling, fading, or rotting over time, vinyl windows are relatively low maintenance. After installation, you won’t have to worry about much regarding ongoing maintenance, except for keeping them clean.

Ample options available. Unlike wood and fiberglass, Vinyl windows come in a wide variety of styles, shapes, and color options.

Cons of Vinyl Windows

Environmental concerns. Although vinyl is inexpensive to produce, it’s not an organic material and does have an impact on the environment. While manufacturers have attempted to combat this impact through recycling, the quality and strength of vinyl windows made from recycled materials often suffer as a result.

Variation in quality. Because vinyl windows are now among the most popular types of replacement windows available, the rise in demand has resulted in an increase in manufacturers and in quality. The varied qualities of vinyl may impact the mass of the glass used in their manufacture and the size of the frame. To ensure that you’re getting the best value, research and review Ohio contractors and window companies before you invest in vinyl windows for your home.

Noise insulation. Vinyl doesn’t have the same insulating abilities as fiberglass, which makes it easier for outside noise to filter into your Dayton home.
