Your windows are a key element of your home’s exterior. If you’re considering replacement windows but are hesitant to move forward because you don’t know how they’ll impact the look of your home, worry not. Today’s replacement windows can have a traditional look or modern look. Vinyl replacement windows come in many styles and colors perfect for whatever look you want for your home. They have many other benefits in addition to improving the comfort and curb appeal of your home.

Increase Natural Light in Your Home

Older wood windows have larger frames and most have six over six grids. These two elements combined block much of the natural light that could come into your home. When you choose vinyl replacement windows, the frames are narrow and the grids come in many different options. Even if you want to stick with the traditional six over six pattern the grilles are narrower than old wood windows have. This allows more light into your home.

Older windows are typically plain glass. That glass allows ultraviolet light into your home. That light can fade your carpets, furniture, and curtains. New windows with UV coated glass protect things in your home from fading. You’ll also find that vinyl replacement windows with Low-E glass have a lower Solar Heat Gain Coefficient which means they also blog infrared rays better too, keeping your home cooler.
