Durable and low-maintenance

Vinyl windows are higher-quality and longer-lasting than other types like aluminum or wood. They’re designed to withstand insects, decay and harsh weather conditions like high winds and heavy rain. These windows don’t rot, peel or flake, and they don’t need to be refinished to look great for many years.

They also require minimal maintenance, which includes wiping them off every now and then. Your homeowners not only won’t have to spend much time with upkeep, but they’ll also spend less money on repairs. Vinyl windows are sure to withstand the test of time.


Vinyl windows are affordable. They’re nearly half the price of wood windows and cheaper than fiberglass and aluminum as well. Since they require little maintenance over their lifetime, there are lower costs associated with repairs and replacement. They’re available at a range of price points, making them accessible for all homeowners.

In addition to being cost-friendly, they increase the property value of a home and boost curb appeal. These windows are readily available for home builders to provide to their clients.


No one likes a high electric bill, and that makes vinyl windows a great choice for homeowners who want to save on their energy costs. The insulation provided by vinyl windows helps reduce utility costs and ensure comfort throughout the year. Thermal-efficient vinyl with an energy-efficient insulating glass unit helps keep the warm air inside during the winter and outside during the summer. These windows reduce the transfer of heat and screen out damaging ultraviolet light that causes interior fading with their double- or triple-paned design.

Environmentally friendly

In addition to being energy-efficient, vinyl windows have a low environmental impact. They’re a great option for homeowners looking to reduce their carbon footprint. They last longer than wood and aluminum windows, which means they don’t need to be replaced as often. And when they do need replacement, the old ones can be recycled, so they won’t end up in a landfill.

Variety of styles

Another benefit of vinyl windows is that they come with a variety of style and color options. There are special shapes and standard window selections available. With these windows, homeowners can get something that fits their style and enhances the look of their home.
