Wood windows have been in use for hundreds of years. In fact, the very first window ever seen on a church was made from wood. Wood was chosen because it is flexible and can be easily cut into different shapes.
Wooden windows generally come with three panes: one large pane that acts as a vent and two smaller panes that act as insulation — this type of window is called a ‘ventilating sash’. The larger pane sits between the two smaller ones and slides up or down to let air flow through the building while still protecting it from rain and other forms of water damage.
Vinyl windows are a type of window that is made out of vinyl, which is a soft and flexible plastic. It can be easily molded into various shapes and used to make many different types of products. There are many reasons for this choice in materials – including the fact that vinyl is strong but also lightweight, easy to work with, inexpensive, long-lasting, and durable. However, it is also not as easy to recycle; but new vinyl windows are manufactured with 95% recyclable materials. They are also more efficient than most other windows, due to their low emissivity.
Vinyl windows are usually preferred to aluminum or fiberglass-clad wood because it is easier to work with and more durable than both of these materials. Vinyl is also often less expensive than other types of windows, but this depends on the specific type of vinyl window that is being purchased. When the vinyl window has better insulation and energy-efficient features, it can also be more expensive.
In contemporary times, fiberglass windows have emerged as a highly favored choice for window replacements. From designers and engineers to project managers, an increasing number of professionals endorse fiberglass for window upgrades, praising its affordability, durability, and ability to elevate both comfort and aesthetics.
Fiberglass stands out as a resilient and adaptable solution, maintaining its performance from the initial installation through the long haul. These windows offer a premium return on investment, ensuring that every dollar spent is well justified.
