When selecting windows for your home most have to choose between wood and vinyl replacement windows.  I’m sure you’ve asked yourself vinyl or wood replacement windows, which is right for me?

Why choose wood? Why choose vinyl? Which one is better?   These are all questions that we are asked when we go into our clients home when looking at windows.  We try our best to educate our clients and help them make a decision on which option might be the best for them and their home.

When thinking about energy efficiency both wood and vinyl windows are very equal.  You can get great insulation values out of both types of windows.  Both offer height efficiency triple paned windows.  So this is rarely a decoding factor with choosing a replace window.

Aesthetics is the biggest gap between and vinyl windows.  Even though vinyl windows are nice and have tons of features, they tend in most instances to lack the aesthetics that a wood window can offer.  The look of a wood window and the options you can have with the finish of a wood interior window surpass those of a vinyl window.

Cost is another deciding factor when choosing between these types of windows.   In most instances the equal version in vinyl windows are going to be the more affordable option for windows.  In some instances you standard double paned vinyl window could cost as much as half less than the equal wood window.
