Windows are of many types but the ones made with vinyl frames certainly are better than their aluminium or wooden counterparts, making them a popular choice in areas like Edmonton that face harsh weather most parts of the year. Though thin aluminium frames are the standard choice across North America, they are good conductors of heat with lesser insulation powers. Windows installed on vinyl frames on the other hand are more heat resistant owing to vinyl being a bad conductor of heat. Vinyl windows have some distinct advantages that we discuss below:

High insulation

Vinyl is more like thick wood with high insulation properties and a bad conductor of heat. Also vinyl frames enable tight seals on windows that prevent passage of air through glass panes helping create comfortable interiors. Aluminium frames on the other hand are made of thin sheets as compared to vinyl frames that are thick like wood.

Easy installation

Vinyl windows are way easy to install as compared to any other window. They are pre-colored, pre-polished and pre-assembled, all ready to be installed. This makes window installation easy and uncomplicated to set it up. Also these windows and custom doors do not require additional painting or polishing for a finished look and feel. The ready-to-install product is pre-finished with all the parts in place.

Durability

Vinyl windows are made from 100% uPVC unlike other polymers that are affected by extreme temperatures. Other windows and doors made of polymers lose their shape, strength and even color when exposed to direct sunlight for long hours ultimately affecting the seal allowing emission of heat or cold. But this is not the case of vinyl that remains unaffected by external weather conditions (heat, cold or moisture) making it very durable. These windows require less maintenance and are also an environment friendly option.Also these windows come as complete unit of fusion welded frame and sash resulting in a strong combination. This method of construction makes the windows resistant to ever kind of weather and also seals the corners to provide extra insulation creating air tight spaces by preventing air filtration. Combined with panes of Low E glasses, these are an energy efficient option for windows reducing energy bills considerably.

Customizable

Custom Vinyl Windows are completely customizable making them suitable for every kind of interior. They come in various colors made with specially formulated paints, adding vibrancy to your home. They are crafted with exact measurements of your windows.

The best part of vinyl windows is that they are custom manufactured. Mass produced windows may not fit your in your existing frame if you are looking for replacing your old windows.
