#1 Most Popular – Vinyl Replacement Windows
Vinyl replacement windows are the most popular for several reasons. First, they’re often the most affordable. Second, homeowners appreciate the fact they’re virtually maintenance free. And last, they come in many colors and styles.
#2 Most Durable – Fiberglass Windows
Like vinyl replacement windows, fiberglass windows come in a variety of styles and colors. They also require little maintenance. Fiberglass is more durable because they’re not only plastic, but a glass-fiber reinforced material, hence fiber-glass. The sun doesn’t impact them as quickly and they have less expansion and contraction. However, they are almost always more expensive than vinyl windows.
#3 Classic Appearance – Wood & Clad Windows
Clad windows are wood windows covered on the outside with either vinyl, aluminum or fiberglass. The inside remains wood so it can be painted or stained. A clad window has less maintenance than an all wood window, but more than other types. But, if you have a historic home, you can’t match the look of a wood window with another material.
#4 Environmentally Friendly – Aluminum Windows
They also have many other benefits than just being environmentally friendly. They’re great for your home’s resale value and as durable as fiberglass windows. Aluminum windows usually cost a bit more than vinyl replacement windows, but not as much as fiberglass. You won’t have much maintenance and if you have a large format picture window or want a large sliding window, aluminum will be your best option.
