When you’re choosing new or replacement windows, the list of options can be overwhelming. Shape, color, grid, fixed versus operable… it’s enough to make your head spin. Starting with the frame material can help narrow down your selection.
Wood windows are beautiful and traditional. But they’re high-maintenance, and they don’t last very long. Some wood windows need replacement after only three years; others can last 10 to 20 years at best.
Aluminum windows last longer than wood, but they begin to show signs of wear (dings and dents) early on. With some of the hailstorms we see here in Ohio, aluminum windows are a poor choice.
At Zen Windows, we believe vinyl replacement windows are the best choice! Contact us online or give us a call to get a FREE quote on vinyl replacement windows!
You might be surprised to learn one of the best replacement windows materials is vinyl. There are many vinyl brands available. Some are expensive. Some are (and look) cheap. How do you tell the difference in quality?
Here are three things to look for in the best vinyl replacement windows:
ENERGY STAR® recommends that you consider the U-factor when you’re looking for replacement vinyl windows. This is the rate of heat loss during cold weather and heat gain during warm weather. U-factor is expressed as a number between 0 and 1. The lower the U-factor, the better your window’s energy efficiency.
Another rating is the SHGC (solar heat gain coefficient). This measures how much solar radiation passes through your window and heats your home. Again, the rating is between 0 and 1, and the lower the number the better.
Quality replacement vinyl windows have high-strength frames. Your Zen Windows Columbus frame will have an attractive, elegant appearance while providing superior performance and durability. That’s why we’re able to offer a lifetime warranty. Vinyl Zen Windows have the architectural style, color, and options you want.
Even the best vinyl replacement windows are useless if they’re improperly installed. Your vinyl windows should be professionally installed by a company with a proven track record for good workmanship.
When you’re researching new windows for your Franklin County home, there’s a lot to know. Most window companies say they “need” to visit your home before they will share information.
