When it comes to replacing windows, most people will opt for vinyl. There are a few reasons for that, including the fact that there are more contractors willing and able to install vinyl windows and that vinyl is one of the cheapest durable materials out there.
However, there has been a lot of talk about the use of composite synthetic and natural materials for window manufacturing – such as vinyl and wood. These composite windows can be extremely durable and capable of withstanding powerful winds and storms that would normally damage cheaper vinyl windows.
Despite the fact that composite windows are more expensive, they do have the upper hand over vinyl in many areas. They are designed to facilitate a wider range of colors and design options, so you can choose the appearance you want for your new windows. Moreover, with composite windows you get a more rigid product overall, so you don’t have to worry about contraction and expansion when temperatures fluctuate faster.
Even though both vinyl and composite windows can be excellent choices for a replacement, most Denver window replacement contractors will recommend composite. If you want the best value for the price, call your local contractor for a bid, and ask about alternative composite solutions that can ensure better protection and a longer lifespan.
