With the number of available options for window materials, choosing the right replacement windows can take a lot of work. Homecraft® can help you simplify things and give you a glance at two of the most popular window material choices on the market today.
Vinyl windows are popular because of their low-maintenance requirements. Today’s vinyl window frames are built hollow and have layers of insulation built-in. Some even have aluminum reinforcement for structural support. At Homecraft, we offer ProVia® windows in addition to our own award-winning brand of vinyl units.
The Endure™ series is ProVia’s full-vinyl frame offering and is recognized by ENERGY STAR® as the “Most Efficient” vinyl windows for 2017. It’s available in dual or triple-glazed configurations and is optimized for energy efficiency.
Wood remains a favorite material of choice for replacement windows because of its strength, durability, and natural insulation. The stainable surface and natural grain are other reasons homeowners prefer real wood window frames, like the ones offered by Andersen®. The exterior wood parts feature a special coating that protects the window against moisture, sun, and outside conditions. Furthermore, Andersen windows are covered by a 20-year glass warranty and up to 10 years coverage on other components, including the frame.
Combination Wood and Vinyl
For homeowners who want the warm look of interior wood frames with the clean and crisp exterior vinyl frames, there’s ProVia’s Aeris™ line of wood-and-vinyl frames. You can paint or stain the interior wood components to match your trim or furniture. You can do the same thing for the exterior vinyl surface to match the siding. The window glass features ComforTech™ Warm Edge Glazing technology that enhances your home’s energy efficiency.
