Looking to freshen up the entryway of your house? Installing a new entry door is one great way to give your house a facelift. Sliding vinyl patio doors can provide a beautiful, clear view out to your backyard in all seasons and provide easy access to your patio, deck, or backyard. Using vinyl sliding windows in rooms like the kitchen or front room is also a quick fix to opening up those rooms and letting natural light in. Here are some reasons to consider using vinyl sliding windows or doors in your home:
Vinyl window installation is fairly easy! If you’ve got your own tools and and skills, you can install them yourself, without having to contract out and spend more money on those services. They tend to be lighter than wood or aluminum framed windows, so that’s an extra bonus for home installation. A vinyl windows company may also offer suggestions or how-to videos on their website.
Vinyl is durable and resistant. Good quality vinyl will have additives that keep it from getting brittle, yellowing, or fading with the seasons or climate. Vinyl doesn’t rot or corrode like other materials and don’t need to be cleaned with chemicals or constantly re-painted. Maintenance is very low with vinyl windows.
Diverse options. The newest models of vinyl windows come with a variety of no-fade colors or fade-resistant faux grain patterns, meaning that if you wanted the look of wood or aluminum, you can still have it, at a better cost and less maintenance!
Vinyl is eco-friendly and resource-friendly. Vinyl (also known as PVC) saves energy and lessens carbon dioxide emissions and takes less energy to manufacture than other products. Additionally, the hollow spaces in PVC make vinyl heat-loss and condensation resistant. You could see your energy bill go down, in the winter or the summer! Additionally, you have a beautiful view of your yard or outdoors.
Ease of use. Once installed, a sliding vinyl window or door is easy to both open and lock. A sliding door can also increase space–since the door doesn’t swing in (or out), the space around the door can be used for other things. Sliding doors also make it easy to bring larger objects in the house (furniture, Christmas trees, etc,) since they tend to open wider and can often be taller.
Vinyl sliding windows also tend to slide easier and are easier to lubricate if stuck. Enjoy the low maintenance and diverse options by looking into vinyl window replacements and giving your house a facelift!
