The Five Best Benefits of Vinyl Windows


Vinyl windows have been getting some unfair bad press lately, but there are so many reasons that they’re great! The benefits of vinyl windows definitely outweigh the downsides and a lot of the negative outlook is just coming from misinformation.
 

Vinyl windows happen to be the new norm. A lot of people have their suspicions over the quality of the modern window-frame material and there are a fair share of myths regarding the material floating around. There’s misinformation regarding the quality or lasting benefits of the material. In actuality, vinyl windows are the best option on the market. They’re safe, they’re quality, they’re long lasting and they’re beautiful.
 

To clear the air, NorthShield has put together a list of the five best benefits of vinyl window frames: 

 

1.Custom Design

Vinyl can be moulded into any shape. There’s a lot more versatility when working with vinyl shapes. A lot of homes, especially older ones, have unique shapes and sizes – requiring fully custom shaped windows and doors. Vinyl offers this flexibility with ease. It’s also easy to custom colour and finish vinyl anyway you need, giving you the opportunity to be much more creative than the options that wood allow.

 

2.Maintenance

Unlike wood, vinyl never requires any upkeep. While wood will require occasional sanding or finishing, vinyl stays shining and true to the way it looked when you first installed it. They’re also so much easier to clean. Vinyl doesn’t require gentile products in the same way organic materials do. To wash vinyl all you need is soap and water. Water itself won’t wrap or misshape your vinyl the same way it affects woods.


3.Energy

Vinyl windows are without hesitation the most energy efficient material of window frame on the market. This material is an ideal insulator, and unlike wood or aluminum, vinyl windows ensure you’re keeping the heat inside during the winter months – saving you energy costs and feeling chilly. 


4.Environment

Opposed to what some people think, vinyl is an easy to recycle material when the time comes to replace your windows. You can rest easy knowing that you’re reducing your ecological footprint when you install vinyl windows and doors for your property. Their energy efficiency also helps to make vinyl the most environmentally friendly option for window installation. In fact, vinyl windows were first introduced during the 1970s when the United States was especially concerned with energy efficient windows and doors.

 

5.Popularity

Vinyl windows are now used for more than half of US residential window installation. This means that there are countless resources for fixing, up keeping, replacing or customizing your new vinyl windows. As the popularity of vinyl windows continue to expand, so will the options and resources available to ensure they’re looking and performing their absolute best.

 

When considering your options, make sure to take this list into account. Vinyl windows offer a lot of benefits to any property and are ultimately the easiest material to maintain.

Alex and the team at north shield were amazing. Great customer service, along with a great team of installers. North shield replaced my 2 front living room windows in 1 day. They even took away my awning! Highly recommended

Jim gave us a great price, and I was also very happy with the installation team. Great workmanship, product, hey we’re friendly and clean. I am left feeling good about the company we chose to do our windows. I would certainly not hesitate in recommending them.

Andy and his crew installed the windows as agreed and were extremely pleasant. The cleanup was exceptional. They arrived on time. I would recommend North Shield to anyone looking for new windows. The service was incredible, The pricing was very good. The sales person Jim Scammel was very informative and knowledgeable. We had quotes from five (5) companies and feel good with our decision. The overall product was exceptional, but Andy was the STAR!!!! We did 17 windows and a door, so this was an important decision to our family.

We love our new windows. It was a challenging job for the guys as we are on the second floor of a condo but they were very professional and up to the task. Windows look great inside and out.

We had our windows installed last summer and absolutely love them - especially the large kitchen window. Our sales rep Jim S. was terrific and knowledgeable. The installers did a professional, skilled job of installing our windows. And the windows themselves are high quality, easy to open and easy to clean - as well as reasonably priced. We are very happy with our entire experience with this company and highly recommend them. Thank you!
