Why Our Nashville Windows Have Vinyl Frames
When researching Nashville windows for your home, pay close attention to the materials used to construct the window frames. At American Home Design, for example, we are the area’s exclusive dealer of Preservation windows – a window manufacturer that constructs windows that feature vinyl frames. But why vinyl? What advantages does this material offer that other frames can’t match?
You can’t start to talk about vinyl without first mentioning the incredible resiliency of the material. Here’s the problem with natural wood: it has a bad habit of absorbing moisture. Over time, wood window frames subtly expand and contract as a result of moisture in the air. This can eventually cause the frames to become leaky, allowing heat to enter and exit the home, and water leaks to occur. Vinyl, on the other hand, does not absorb water. This helps ensure that the Nashville windows won’t ever:
- Otherwise deteriorate
Additionally, because vinyl is so durable, you don’t have to worry about every painting or staining the window frames. They’ll look as good as the day they were installed for the years to come with minimal maintenance. If they get a little dirty, it usually doesn’t take much more than soap and water to get them looking brand new.
These Nashville windows also feature high-density insulation within the window frame, which makes them even more energy efficient. The combination of the vinyl frames and incorporated insulation make it easier than ever to regulate the temperature of your home, ensuring it is consistently comfortable throughout the year regardless of what the weather is doing outside. Plus, since your home’s HVAC unit won’t have to work as hard to offset energy loss through inefficient windows, you might see some savings on your home’s heating and cooling bills.
