With our field of work, we have been deemed an essential business. This is great news for everyone that we support. We understand that construction is taking place as usual and people as well as companies need doors, windows and hardware still. So, what does this all mean? Allen Commercial Doors want you to know that you can get all of those home projects like you were planning on before this all started. If you’re a construction company then you will still have your steady supply of materials in order to complete your construction projects. Here are some of the things that you’ll need to know when contemplating upgrading your windows:
There are three types of windows that we offer wood, vinyl, and aluminum windows. They all have their pros and cons. We want to help break down what they are so that you can make the best decision for your home or place of business.
When it comes to wood windows the number one plus is the look. There is something about a home when you see beautiful wood windows to complete the all-natural look of your home. It is a very durable material but not without maintenance. It can crack and wrap if it is in extreme heat. However, for the most part it can endure heat and cold very well. This means that you can gauge if the area where you get would be suitable for such a material as wood.
Aluminum is a great durable material in terms of making sure that you have something that is long lasting. It is relatively maintenance free and easy to clean. The look of aluminum might not be the best when it comes to residential homes. This type of material is featured best when on a commercial property. The biggest downside to this type of material is the fact that it is a good conductor for both heat and cold. In short that means that it isn’t the best when it comes to being energy efficient.
The most common and cost-effective material out there is vinyl windows. This type of material is virtually no maintenance which is on everyone's list of wants. Along with that they are also economical and energy efficient. Vinyl windows are also extremely durable. There is a downside to this type of material, just as the rest of them. They tend to start to discolor over time when exposed to extreme heat. One thing that you need to know is that you can’t paint vinyl windows so as time goes by, if they fade or warp, you’ll need to have them replaced.
Hopefully this helps you to make a good decision when having to install or upgrade your windows this year.
