Vinyl vs Aluminum Windows by the Window Professionals

Vinyl vs Aluminum Windows
When homeowners are considering replacement windows they have more choices in materials, finishes, and styles today than ever before. In the past most homes in the United States were constructed with wooden windows—and older homes can still be found with these charming if inefficient features—vinyl and aluminum windows have become the more popular choices for new installations and replacements. Both aluminum and vinyl are typically more durable, lower-maintenance, and less expensive than wood, but each material has its own pluses and minuses.

If you’re choosing between vinyl and aluminum windows, you know this decision is not one that can be solved with a coin toss, either. New windows are a fairly pricey proposition, ranging from a low of about $375 up to more than $1,500 per window, according to industry estimates. Contractor referral website Angie’s List says that members report paying an average of $729 per replacement window, including installation. 
To help shine a light on the right choice, we’ve laid out some differences between these two popular types of windows. Keep reading for key considerations in the decision of vinyl vs aluminum windows.

Vinyl frames are more traditional in appearance than aluminum frames.

When considering style, vinyl and aluminum windows hit many of the same notes: Both are readily available as single- or double-hung, single- or multi-pane, and nearly any color or finish you could desire, depending on the manufacturer. That said, vinyl window frames are typically thicker than aluminum frames and offer options of smooth, textured, or faux wood finishes. In fact, the wood-grain texture achievable with vinyl windows is a big plus for homeowners who like the look of wood but long for the durability of newer materials.
With aluminum frames, a wood look would be a mere coating essentially painted on and therefore does not typically appear quite so realistic. Thinner aluminum frames are typically finished in a smooth or textured powder-coated enamel for an ultimately sleeker, modern appearance that is more conducive to fitting in with contemporary architectural styles.

Aluminum frames are more prone to dents, corrosion, and fading.

Both types of windows are very resistant to scratching, cracking, and marring. Vinyl windows, however, boast extra durability when it comes to dents and chips, too. In the rare circumstances that your frames were to be damaged, vinyl frames—which are constructed of the same material all the way through—would be less likely to show any chips or scratches than aluminum frames, where any damage to the finish will expose the raw metal underneath.

What are Horizontal Roller Impact Windows by the Window Professionals

Horizontal roller impact windows offer a versatile window with sashes positioned side by side with a slight overlap. Tracks are built into the top and bottom of the frame to allow the window to be opened and closed horizontally. Horizontal Rollers offer 2- and 3-lite configurations (where one or two panels may open), and many feature removable operating panels for easy cleaning. The Horizontal Roller allows for an uninterrupted vertical view and significant airflow.

Horizontal roller impact windows, also known as horizontal slider impact windows, are known as a more contemporary choice for your home, business, or retail building.

  

Benefits of Horizontal Slider Windows:

Larger window: Sliding windows let you take in a more expansive view thanks to their larger size. This also allows more natural light to enter the room. Larger windows also open wider, maximizing natural ventilation when you need it. The average sliding window is large enough to fit a box fan so you can really get the air moving.

Better efficiency: With their basic functionality and fewer moving parts, horizontal slider windows tend to boast higher efficiency ratings than the average double hung window. The tight seal of a sliding window helps keep extreme temperatures out for a more comfortable interior.

Easy to clean: When it’s time to clean the outside of your second-story sliding windows, the operable pane pops out easily to simplify this task. No more need to hire professional window washers!

Pros and Cons of Fiberglass Entry Doors by the Window Professionals.

Pros and Cons of Fiberglass Entry Doors


Fiberglass doors are available in a complex range of styles, colors and finishes to fit every home exterior. If you tire of the appearance of your fiberglass door over time, repainting is always an option. Fiberglass is more durable than other materials; it resists dents and scratches and is impervious to rot and rust that plague doors manufactured from wood or steel. In addition, this type of door never bows or warps from exposure to weather.  

Fiberglass doors have higher R-values than wooden doors of comparable styles, which means that they keep your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer. A windowless door made of fiberglass offers five times the insulating value of a similar door manufactured from solid wood a big factor in energy efficiency for homeowners who are concerned about the size of their monthly utility bill.  

When properly installed, fiberglass doors offer superior security. Your entry door is only as secure as its frame, but composite door frames have twice the screw-holding power of wood. Additionally, fiberglass doesn't deteriorate over time like doors manufactured from steel or wood. Homeowners never have to worry about repairing rusted-out areas on fiberglass doors or replacing them because they've deteriorated from rot.

What the heck is a Double Hung Window? by the Window Professionals

What the heck is a Double Hung Window? by the Window Professionals



On double hung windows both sash in the window frame are operable, meaning they move up and down. The sashes on a double hung window also tilt in for easy cleaning.

A Double Hung window is one of the most popular replacement window styles chosen by homeowners. Some of the oldest sash windows are dated as far back as 1670 in England. Double Hung windows have the Georgian and Victorian-style house look — the style most people think about with replacement windows. The term “hung sash window” is most common in the United States, referring to “double-hung windows.”

  • The double hung has two operating sashes — movable parts that slide vertically up and down, held in place by a window frame.

  • The sashes tilting for easy cleaning.

  • Double-hung windows offer the ability to open both sashes, allowing good air flow.

  • Double Hung windows are usually made of wood, vinyl, aluminum or and composite. 

  • The most energy-efficient and maintenance-free choices are vinyl windows and composite windows.

  • Some of the most important considerations that add value to double-hung windows are: if they incorporate Low–E glass and achieve low U-value ratings; whether they are Energy Star certified; what type of air infiltration and Design Pressure (DP) ratings they achieve; and whether they are Gold Labeled by AAMA.

  • Double-strength glass, triple-plane-glass, and laminated glass are all features that will help with sound transmission – keeping exterior noises out of your home.
  • Additional features to look for are: high-performance glass systems with Super Spacer or Stainless Steel Intercept; reinforced meeting rails; air and water barriers built into the sill design; and sleek-looking locks. Double-hung windows also come with half and full screen options.

  • Double Hung windows are available for both replacement window and new construction window applications — with nailing fins and J-channel for siding, brick and stone installations.

  • Impact windows are available in the double hung window style for areas that require hurricane windows.

  • Overall, vinyl double-hung windows have the ability to retain their beauty, continue to offer thermal efficiency benefits, and last generations with minimal maintenance.
