3 Popular Picks FOR WINDOWS
When shopping for new windows for your home, there are several material types to choose from. Kathryn Nash, Marketing & Advertising Coordinator for Pella Windows of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, explains the key differences for the most common types.
• VINYL. This is a standard, budget-friendly option that offers energy savings and bang for your buck. “It’s a very energy-efficient material, very low maintenance,” Kathryn says. “They’re welded, framed and fashioned together to be strong, durable and energy efficient.”
• FIBERGLASS. “Fiberglass combines energy efficiency with extreme durability,” says Kathryn. “They’re scratch resistant, and they have the lowest expansion and contraction rate, so it’s going to protect your home against extreme heat and cold.” An excellent choice for locations with extreme temperature changes, fiberglass is the strongest window material on the market and is also low maintenance. “You can set it and forget it,” Kathryn says.
• WOOD. A top-tier choice, wood windows can add a luxurious, rustic feel. “Wood creates more of a natural look and can be painted or stained,” Kathryn says. “In terms of thermal performance, it’s energy efficient as well.” While wood windows are highly customizable, they do require occasional touch-ups.
