You get what you pay for. No matter what you’re buying, if you purchase the most inexpensive option you’re likely getting something cheap that won’t function properly for long and will not last. Cheap, poor quality vinyl windows have given this type of windows a bad reputation for function, durability and quality. Remember that just because the cheap windows can’t cut it, doesn’t mean that all vinyl windows are bad.
What is wrong with vinyl windows?
If you purchase high-quality vinyl windows, nothing is wrong with them! You’ve made a great choice for durability, function and energy efficiency.
The biggest misconception about vinyl windows is that ALL vinyl windows can’t take the heat and that they will soften, warp and twist if heat builds up within the frame. There is also a worry that they will contract in the cold and leave spaces between your walls and window frame. In older, poor quality vinyl windows, this was the case.
The issue of heat absorption is why most vinyl windows are white or light colours, to keep the heat from absorbing in the frame. You may have also noticed that a lot of newer homes are being fitted with black or dark framed vinyl windows. This is because knowledgeable window manufacturers have overcome this issue by using quality PVC and master-built window casings that will stand up to the heat and cold and improve your home’s energy efficiency. These windows in Edmonton and Calgary are double or triple pane with low emissivity, argon gas-filled glass. Not only are they durable, they’re easy to clean and are virtually maintenance free.
An average window replacement for a home can range from $25,000-$35,000. When something goes wrong, the dealer will likely blame the manufacturer. Can you imagine having to spend that kind of money again on windows after just a few short years?
With Pella Windows and Doors in Calgary and Edmonton, you can rest assured knowing your vinyl windows will not warp or twist and that they will be installed properly. Your investment will be safe and will show returns in energy savings and improved resale value for your house.
