What other advantages do vinyl windows
have? Well they resist: rust, rot, blistering, corrosion, flaking and termites. A study by an internationally respected life cycle analysis firm shows vinyl window
frames require three times less energy to manufacture than aluminum window frames. Beyond that, the use of vinyl window
frames has been shown to save the United States nearly 2 trillion BTUs of energy per year. The design of vinyl window
frames further enhances energy efficiency by creating chambers in the frame that provide additional resistance to heat transfer and insulating air pockets. The energy efficiency of vinyl windows
and glass doors can help reduce the greenhouse gas emissions associated with coal-fired power plants. These windows
are also low maintenance. No painting and repainting necessary.
You can choose from many different colors and all of them are essentially scratch resistant. However, once you choose the color, it can neither be changed nor can it be repainted. If you are looking for grace and elegance, energy efficiency, affordable price, or ease of maintenance, vinyl replacement windows
are clearly your best choice. They are absolutely scratch-resistant and your windows, whatever their age, will always look new.
