Vinyl frames are especially energy efficient due to its ability to trap air. In addition to their insulating properties, vinyl frames are UV resistant, require little maintenance and are generally more affordable compared to their wood and fiberglass counterparts.
Advantages of Vinyl Frames
- Exceptionally energy efficient
- Extremely durable
- Virtually maintenance-free
Vinyl frames are made primarily from polyvinyl chloride (PVC). This material has many advantages, including being virtually maintenance-free. There will be differences in the quality of one manufacturer's vinyl compared to another. This is because a vinyl frame is made from a compound a recipe of sorts that dictates its performance over time. Each additive to a company's vinyl recipe helps determine the long-term characteristics of the final product, like its weather and impact resistance.
Generally, vinyl windows and doors are available in white and various neutral colors. New coating technology allows UV rays to pass through the color formulation and reflect off the vinyl frame. This preserves the exterior finish. Consequently, a vinyl window can look nearly new for years.
