Reasons To Install Vinyl Windows And Garage Doors

By Ajeet Khurana

In the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s and before this time the windows and doors that were installed in our homes were usually made of aluminum. This was thought to be the most economical as well as efficient material to make these items out of but as time has gone along we have learned that vinyl is actually the way to go.

There are numerous benefits of using this material instead of aluminum and more and more homeowners are going this route when it is time to replace their old windows and doors.

The Benefits Of Vinyl Replacement Windows And Garage Doors

One of the most common reasons that people choose this type is because they look better. Many times the aluminum frames are painted and as they age the paint chips and it doesn’t look very good at all. With the vinyl products they come in uniform colors and with many different finishes and the look will last well into the future so you know that your windows will continue to look great.


With energy costs rising another good reason to go this route is to create a more energy efficient home. If you have aluminum ones you will probably find that the heat and the cold comes right through it, and when the wind blows your curtains or blinds may sway in the breeze!

If you want to reduce the cost of heating and cooling vinyl is the way to go. This type of window offers the dual panes and even coating on the glass that will keep out UV rays.

Another reason to make this change is for security reasons. Chances are if you have older ones they can be tapped a few times or knocked on and the locks will give way. With the replacement windows you can lock them and you know that they will stay this way.

Many home burglaries occur not through the actual breaking of a door or window, but simply working a lock open and crawling in through a window or door with faulty locks! Security is an important thing to think about when buying new ones!

Noise reduction is another very common reason to choose them and garage doors instead of the aluminum varieties. Vinyl options give you dual panes, which provide you with a barrier to all the noise outside of your home such as the neighbor’s dogs, the noisy birds, traffic, and of course loud neighbors. You’ll be able to enjoy the comfort of your home without thinking about what is going outside, and isn’t that what we all want when we are at home?

There are a lot of people out there that will tell you that you do not want a garage door or window made from this material, but overall you will find that there are a lot more benefits than there are pitfalls.

In some climates you may find that you have to pressure wash the surface to keep it free of mildew, but this is a small price to pay for the savings, security, and great look that you get from the product.
