New or replacements? Double-pane or casements? Here are a few styles and materials to consider to help you choose the right windows for your home.
The right windows can add architectural interest, enhance energy efficiency, increase the value of your home, and literally light up your interiors. But with so many options, how are you supposed to choose the right windows for your home?
Consider materials. Vinyl windows offer modern style, and affordable luxury, with a lower price point than their wood counterparts, but they come in a limited color range, which can restrict style options. Wood windows are indeed more expensive, but their timeless look and universal appeal can add more resale value to your home, as long as they are carefully maintained.
Maintenance matters. When comparing wood and vinyl, consider the upkeep. Wood windows require repainting/staining every few years, whereas vinyl windows do not.
