If you’re starting your search for new windows and doors, you may be putting your focus on style, design and price point. And these are all essential elements to consider as you plan your home renovation project.
But it’s worthwhile to educate yourself on the most popular types of materials for windows and doors, their properties and which might be best for you.
Vinyl Windows and Doors
For many, vinyl windows and doors are a great option. Available at a more accessible price point, this material is highly energy efficient, so you don’t have to trade off between price and performance. Vinyl windows and doors can also be molded into a variety of different textures, including that of a wood finish!
Another selling point – vinyl windows and doors are exceptionally low maintenance, requiring little more than an occasional cleaning with a damp cloth and mild soap. Available in a range of colours and styles, it’s no wonder it’s a top choice for many homeowners looking to make a change. You’re sure to find a vinyl window or door to fit your taste and budget.
Fiberglass Windows and Doors
If you’re looking for minimalist windows with large glass panes and minimal frames, we may recommend fiberglass frames for your window replacement project.
Made of an engineered polymer with glass filaments, fiberglass windows and doors are incredibly strong and resistant to the elements. They are great for managing condensation and maintaining your home’s internal temperature, regardless of how it feels outside.
The windows are thin, lightweight and work well with the sleek, simple look that’s on trend these days. Fiberglass doors can be made to mimic wood if you like the traditional look. And both fiberglass doors and windows are easy to maintain, energy-efficient choices for today’s modern home.
Metal-Clad Windows and Doors
For a luxe, premium choice, we suggest metal-clad windows and doors for your home. Many homeowners love the warmth a natural wood finish brings to their homes but prefer a lower maintenance option for their windows and doors. After all, wood requires frequent upkeep – cleaning, sanding, and sealing – to keep this material in the best possible shape.
Metal-clad windows and doors have wood on the interior side and an aluminum exterior protecting a wooden core. With metal-clad products, homeowners can have the best of both worlds! Aluminum is energy-efficient and great at keeping the elements out for a comfortable living environment.
