Are Vinyl Windows Superior To Non-Vinyl Options?

What Makes Vinyl Windows Better than Their Non-Vinyl Counterparts?

Top Reasons Why Zen Vinyl Windows Are The Best Choice For Your Home

  1. Vinyl windows are practically maintenance-free. Unlike wood or metal windows, they don’t require constant or regular upkeep and servicing to be in good condition.
  2. Quality vinyl windows are strong and durable and will last for many years. Made from virgin vinyl, they can outlast all other types of windows including their wood and metal counterparts. In addition, they will keep their structural integrity all throughout their life span even when constantly exposed to all kinds of outdoor conditions. When you choose Zen vinyl windows, you have the added assurance that your units last for a very long time as they come with a solid lifetime warranty that you can count on in case issues arise in the future.
  3. Zen vinyl windows have corner joints welded together making it almost impossible for air to leak out. In comparison, the corners of most wood and metal windows are mechanically joined. This approach tends to weaken overtime creating gaps from which a significant amount of air is allowed to get in and out of the house. Though you can address this issue through caulking, it is but a temporary solution that you can only rely on for a certain period of time.
  4. Wood windows may offer great aesthetics and excellent thermal performance, but these come in high price tags. Meanwhile, vinyl windows are the most affordable options in the market today. Also, wood windows will rot away especially when water gets into their frames. Vinyl windows, meanwhile, have high resistance against moisture and will not deteriorate, warp, and discolor.
  5. Zen Vinyl windowsrequire very minimal effort to operate. Equipped with reliable and durable balance systems, they can offer you ease of operation.
  6. Vinyl windows by Zen perform better than all other alternate options. This is because vinyl itself makes it easy for engineers to come up with innovative designs such as the interlocks, air barriers and the multi-chambered extrusions. All these make it possible for vinyl windows to help keep your indoor space comfortable minus the exorbitant energy bills.
  7. Vinyl windows are now made not only more energy-efficient, but attractive as well. These days, thanks to an innovative PVC coating technique, SureCoat™ Standard Exterior PVC Bond Colors, their exterior surface can now be painted with virtually all shades under the sun. At Zen Windows Cincinnati, we have a wide range of color options for you to choose from which range from our 14 standard shades and unlimited custom colors.
