Vinyl windows:

Vinyl windows are strong and durable and do not require staining or painting, and thanks to recent advances in vinyl windows- cracking, peeling, and fading are a thing of the past. With some maintenance, new vinyl windows will last for years.

Vinyl windows are also energy efficient, and they offer greater thermal protections over wood windows. They are also environmentally friendly because the material they are made out of is recyclable and they will last longer than most options on the market.

Vinyl windows come in a wide variety of styles and colors that will for sure match your home's decor. They are also one of the most affordable options on the market


Wood Windows:

Modern wooden windows offer a classic look combined with new age construction. They are energy efficient and will help lower monthly energy bills. They have a natural look and can be stained or painted to match any home. Wood windows are highly sought after, and in some instances can increase home value.


Fiberglass Windows:

Fiberglass is extremely durable, and according to The Spruce, it is 9x stronger than vinyl, with even fewer chances of the material warping, cracking, peeling, or fading.

Fiberglass framed windows can be painted to match any style and can even mimic the look of wood. Fiberglass windows are eco-friendly because, like vinyl, they can be recycled.

Some data suggest that fiberglass is the best available option for thermal performance, and this is one of the most significant benefits of the material. Fiberglass has one of the highest window ratings currently available on the market.
