Find Security

Whether you're concerned about your flimsy or non-existent locking system on your current windows, or are worried about their shatterproof capabilities, today's vinyl replacement windows offer solid locking mechanisms and other burglar proof features. Additionally, their double pane, shatterproof construction can also offer added comfort and security, especially with active kids in the household.

Tone Down the Noise

Older, single pane windows do little to block out noise. And while this may not seem like an important feature, double pane vinyl windows can virtually shut out all noise and traffic from the street, neighbors, and surrounding area. Still not convinced? Remember that barking dog that keeps you up night after sleepless night.

Vinyl Saves Money

Of course you'll have to incur the initial cost of vinyl replacement windows, but once you make the switch, you'll be amazed at how energy efficient they truly can be. Not only do they increase the insulation factor of your home, but they also provide sun protection and reduce air leakage from poor fitting frames and casings. Specific cost savings will depend largely upon the performance rating of your vinyl replacement windows, the climate you live in, and the type of house you own. Check with your local manufacturers and retailers to get detailed vinyl window ratings and corresponding energy savings.

With all the cost saving features and additional styles, colors, frames, and pane and tinting upgrades, it's easy to see why vinyl replacement windows are so popular today. And with quick installation, you could be enjoying them in your home sooner than you think.
