Types of Windows
There are many different types of windows that can be incorporated into the design of your home. Windows play a crucial role: they allow natural light to fill your rooms during the day, create a visual connection to the outside and permit ventilation to keep inside air fresh and dry. Your windows also complement and enhance the exterior appearance of your home, and help define the style of your house, whether it is traditional or modern. Choose from the following window types to suit your taste and needs.
Bring Quality & Value Home with Windows
Improve your home’s beauty, performance and operation with quality products from Pella® and Lansing Windows, featuring a wide selection of styles and options to choose from.
- Vinyl. Vinyl windows are highly efficient, with many models qualifying for the ENERGY STAR® label, and can be manufactured in custom sizes to fit any opening. Heat-welded sashes and frames add strength and durability. Vinyl-framed windows cost about half as much as comparable wood models, making them an attractive value. Equally appealing is vinyl’s ease of maintenance. Vinyl never needs to be painted, scraped or refinished. With only routine care and cleaning, vinyl windows will look great and perform well for decades to come.
- Wood. While slowly waning in popularity, wood windows continue to be the choice of many builders and homeowners due to their energy efficiency, strength and classic beauty. Wood frames must be routinely painted or stained to stand up to the elements. Some manufacturers offer vinyl- or aluminum-clad wood frames to reduce exterior maintenance requirements while still allowing an attractive natural wood interior.
- Fiberglass. Fiberglass-framed windows are an advanced option with exceptional strength and durability. Fiberglass will not expand, warp, crack or rot, and requires very little maintenance. It also provides superior insulation compared to other window components. Unlike wood windows which must be scraped and painted, fiberglass windows will not peel, fade or lose their color. Fiberglass windows are typically priced between vinyl and wood windows.
In addition to frame material, there are several additional options available for you to upgrade the appearance and feel of your home. Whatever your needs or budget, XteriorPRO has a window that is just right for you!
