Vinyl Windows in Tucson: Made to Last

The material in vinyl windows is much more impressive than the simple name implies. Vinyl is the common name given to an advanced polymer called Polyvinyl Chloride, or “PVC”. It turns out that PVC (or vinyl) is used in all sorts of things. PVC is in fact, one of the most used polymers in the world, being utilized in construction, transportation, medical devices and more. You see, PVC itself is, in fact, a Polymer.

PVC is a safe, economical, thermally resistant material that can be used in many applications…it just needs to be modified to suit that job’s particular needs.

Go Down the List

If you think vinyl is just used for plumbing, think again. When shopping for vinyl frame windows, look at a cross section of the frame. The frame often has multiple chambers of different sizes and the more chambers you see, the higher the quality of the frame. Screws, brackets and caulk, or welding are the two methods used to assemble frames.

Welding causes chemical reactions with the PVC to form a smooth vinyl seal. Look for additional features such as reinforced meeting rails and balanced systems that indicate higher-quality windows.

Listen to Your Home

Your home’s architecture and style dictates what type of vinyl window is right for you. The age and overall aesthetics of your home are important considerations. Radically changing the color or the style — such as double-hung, casement, bow and other window types — affect how the exterior of your home looks.

Choosing the wrong style may make your home look worse instead of improving it! It could even ultimately be a deal killer when trying to sell your home. A variety of finishes are available with some closely mimicking wood. Vinyl can be custom manufactured to match your home’s paint color.

Vinyl: A Window for all Seasons
Vinyl Windows are generally more attractive and offer a variety of different finishes. In fact if vinyl window frames are scratched or chipped for any reason, the exposed parts will look the same, since the material is the same throughout.

Not only that, but vinyl frames are thicker than their aluminum counterparts, which may not be as appealing, depending on the building’s style. Vinyl is highly resistant to scratching, cracking and marring. It’s not as easily dented as other materials. The wood-grain appearance on vinyl windows is also a popular alternative to actual wood, which is more problematic than vinyl or aluminum materials. It’s also superior to the painted surface of aluminum windows.
