Whether you’re browsing a home improvement store or you’re considering options from a professional replacement window company, vinyl windows are one of the most popular choices for homeowners in Kent. Vinyl windows are the top choice due to their flexible aesthetic design, durability, and energy efficiency that’s second-to-none.
However, many homeowners are unaware that not all vinyl windows will hit the mark in what you’d expect for your investment. This brief guide will help you choose the right and ensure that you’re getting the most out of your investment.
The reality is that not all vinyl is created equal when it comes to replacement windows. Unfortunately, the quality is nearly impossible to detect with the naked eye. The reason why some window companies can offer low prices for their windows is that the vinyl is engineered with poor quality ingredients. When you opt for vinyl windows, it’s important that your windows contain mostly titanium dioxide. This reinforces the structural integrity of the window and helps it to last much longer.
Once you know that you’re investing in high quality vinyl, the next step to consider is the glass package. Vinyl window frames can help block out drafts, but the glass is the secret weapon behind saving more energy. When you choose Universal Windows Direct for energy efficient replacement windows, you won’t be short handed in terms of energy savings.
UniShield® windows are exclusive to UWD. These windows are engineered with three key components: energy efficient gases, glazing, and dual or triple pane technology. Argon and krypton gas maximize the thermal efficiency of the window, while low-e glazing helps filter the amount of UV light through the window. Triple pane windows also add the extra benefit of blocking out traffic noise.
When you’re investing in new replacement windows, don’t let price be your deciding factor. While there are times when it’s OK to cut corners on your home improvement project, windows are considered an investment. Keep in mind that windows also offer a ROI of up to 70%, with homeowners receiving maximum value when they choose high quality windows.
