Vinyl is the “swiss army” material of the window and door industry because of its versatility. It can be precision molded to exact specifications with relative ease and can be upgraded for better insulation than many other common materials. If it’s about time to upgrade your home with custom windows and doors in Winnipeg, MB, here are a few reasons why vinyl may be a great material choice for you:
1. Vinyl is affordable
Vinyl is not as expensive as other material options. It is a synthetic material, made using some complex chemistry primarily based on chlorine, derived from regular salt and water, and ethylene, taken from natural gas. These substances are found more abundantly in nature and are therefore not as subject to market fluctuations in the world market. This abundance results in lower manufacturing costs which saves our customers money.
2. Vinyl is durable and easy to maintain
Homeowners enjoy the benefits of vinyl window and door products because it weathers extremely well and doesn’t easily chip or become brittle and crack. Vinyl also does not require regular maintenance other than the occasional wipe down to keep your windows clean and clear.
3. Vinyl is energy efficient
Vinyl window frames can be manufactured with internal air chambers that can be filled with argon gas to improve insulation significantly. They can also be made with multiple window panes, with the space between being filled with gas as well. This coat of low-E reflective insulation can also be applied to window surfaces, which is essentially a window “sunscreen” that will reduce 84% of UV rays from passing through your windows. This coating helps to minimize solar heat gain and helps keep your carpets and furniture from sun damage and fading. When properly installed, these vinyl windows can help you save a good amount of money on monthly utility bills.
4. Vinyl is versatile
Vinyl can be custom made to match your home’s architectural stylings and aesthetics. It can be used on any number of different window types that you may want, including double-hung windows, casement windows, slider windows, bay windows, basement windows, etc. Another advantage that is really appealing to homeowners is that vinyl can be manufactured in almost any color desired.
