Window Material Pros & Cons
There are six materials that windows are primarily made of: vinyl, aluminum, fiberglass, wood, wood-clad and composite. Each material has its pros and cons that you should compare and consider.
If you’re going for natural beauty and a traditional look, then wood is one material to choose for your windows (also see wood-clad and wood composite). It is a popular choice among homeowners for reasons that include durability, environmentally friendly, versatility Just as there are advantages to wood window frames, there are several disadvantages to consider.
Vinyl window frames are comprised of PVC (polyvinyl chloride), which is found in numerous household and plumbing products. The durability and quality of vinyl windows have improved significantly in recent years, making them now an appropriate choice for window frames.
Fiberglass windows have gained traction in our market in recent years. Their composite of reinforced glass fibers and resin creates a strong durable material that requires little maintenance but mimics the look of wood, giving them a beautiful aesthetic.
Aluminum windows are be a solid choice for modern homes or window-filled additions. They provide a streamlined, elegant look and require far less upkeep than other materials. Since aluminum is lightweight but incredibly strong it can support large expanses of glass, so common in modern architecture. With the aluminum advantage, your home can have large windows providing more natural light into your space.
Wood-clad windows provide homeowners with the warm, classic appearance of wood without the tedious maintenance. They are a hybrid of a hard exterior of aluminum or fiberglass covering a solid wood interior. Two materials are joined to create more versatile windows.
This type of frame is a unique makeup of wood composite (wood shavings and recycled plastic), vinyl and metal. Composite windows give you the best qualities of several materials combined for a stronger, versatile overall product. When this type of window first came onto the market, the composite material was just used for the windowsills, but now the entire window frame is able to be made from it, providing a superior product in performance and aesthetic appeal.
