Benefits of Vinyl Windows:
- There is relatively little energy used in the manufacture of vinyl products. In fact, production of all vinyl, world-wide, represents less than 0.3% of all oil and gas consumption!
- In the home, vinyl windows continue to be environmentally friendly. Their energy efficiency saves huge amounts of heating fuel; because they never need painting, stains, strippers and thinners are eliminated. And, since they last such a long time, replacement and the resulting construction debris is minimized.
- Both pre- and post-consumer vinyl are recyclable, and millions of pounds of pre-consumer vinyl are diverted from landfills and recycled every year.
- Most important of all for the homeowner, vinyl window frames are inherently fire retardant. In a fire, they may soften, but they will resist burning.
Vinyl windows are available in many styles, in both new construction and replacement lines, such as single hung, double hung, slider, casement, awning, hopper, and fixed styles.
