One of the most important perks of installing new windows is increased energy efficiency.
Old windows are much more likely to have defects from age and weather. Many older windows also cannot match the current standards and options available in modern windows, such as double-panes, Duralite spacers, and more. Modern composite replacement windows have more thermal transference protection. However, vinyl replacement windows can be created with structural interlocks and air barriers during the extrusion process. Also, vinyl replacement windows are fusion-welded rather than mechanical fastened composite windows.
However, both excel over wood and metal and offer exceptional energy efficiency, especially when choosing UV and temperature extreme blocking glass.
Maintenance and strength go together because the more robust the windows, the less maintenance you’ll have. For example, both vinyl and composite replacement windows will never rot. And, you don’t have to worry about pests.
Depending on the area you live in, you may also want to consider the added value of sound-resistant windows to reduce the volume of traffic or noisy neighbors. And for added protection during rough inclement weather, impact windows can give you peace of mind all year long.
The bottom line always comes down to the budget, and this is where working with the best window replacement companies in Raleigh, Cary, North Carolina, and the surrounding areas is very important.
