Why Are Vinyl Windows A Whole Lot Better Than Non-Vinyl Windows?Top 7 Reasons Why Zen Vinyl Windows Are The Ideal Choice
Vinyl windows require zero to very minimal maintenance. Other alternative materials will call for constant cleaning and servicing in order for the windows to perform at their maximum levels. This can also mean additional work and added expense on your part.
Superior vinyl windows that are made from virgin vinyl ensure durability and longevity. They will maintain their structural integrity through the years. Unlike wood and metal windows, they don’t rot or corrode over time. In addition, Zen’s vinyl windows are warranted for a lifetime.
The sash and frame corners of vinyl windows are welded together. This makes them air-tight allowing only a fractionof air leakage around the sash. Meanwhile, the corners of wood and metal windows are mechanically joined. This approach is less effective allowing a considerable amount air to leak out. While wood and metal windows can be caulked, the caulking eventually deteriorates and the same issue occurs once again.
Wood windows tend to rot over time. This happens when moisture manages to seep through the window frame causing it to warp, discolor, and deteriorate affecting its overall performance. With vinyl windows, you don’t have to deal with these issues simply because they don’t rot.
Zen vinyl windows, with their smooth-action balance systems, are easy and convenient to operate. The sashes easily slide up and down without much effort required.
Vinyl windows rank higher in air infiltration performance than their wood and metal window equivalents.This is because vinyl makes it much easier for engineers to incorporate energy efficient designs than alternative materials. These designs include the interlocks and air barriers. In addition, themulti-chambered construction of vinyl allows for the insertion of foam insulation which can further boost the insulating capabilities of vinyl windows.
One issue associated with vinyl windows before is their lack of color options. Nowadays, thanks to a ground-breaking PVC coating technique, the SureCoat™ Standard Exterior PVC Bond Colors, the exterior of vinyl windows can now be painted with practically any color. This is a dream come true for most homeowners. We offer a wide range of color options ranging from our 14 standard shades and unlimited custom colors. Also, the interiors of our vinyl windows are available in white, beige, brown and woodgrains.
