The use of vinyl windows has increased nearly 30% from 1996 to 2012, and continues to this day. The surge in the use of vinyl replacement window is related directly to their ease of use, durability, and superior energy efficiency. Vinyl windows are highly weather-resistant, even in extreme conditions. Furthermore, since the color goes through the entire thickness of the vinyl, the material is fade resistant and a scratch can be polished smooth with little effort.
Comparing Wood, Aluminum and Vinyl Replacement Windows
Wood and aluminum windows were top options for windows in the past, but today’s vinyl replacement windows are the best on the market. Wood tends to react poorly to moisture, which may cause swelling, splintering, and/or sagging. Wood windows require regular maintenance, too, resulting in an inordinate amount of time and money spent on sanding and refinishing the windows long after they are hung. Aluminum won’t rot, but it will oxidize, and aluminum grows hot or cold to the touch depending on the weather outside.
Stanek Windows’ vinyl replacement windows are constructed with unplasticised PVC (uPVC) or premium vinyl, a strong, safe, water resistant material. These windows will not rust, rot or deteriorate and they offer superior insulation and energy efficiency for your home. An easy wipe down keeps them clean, and since Stanek Windows’ colors are fade resistant, your vinyl replacement windows will continue to look new years after they’ve been installed.
Our line of vinyl replacement windows also features FIBERMAX reinforcement, a composite material that provides structural integrity for superior strength and durability. Stanek Windows’ ULTRAEXTREME Windows windows are slim but strong, and have received among the highest structural and thermal ratings in the industry.
