Why are Vinyl Windows Popular?

One of the reasons why vinyl windows are so popular is because they are very affordable compared to other options. In addition to having a lower price point buyers usually have more options available. As we mentioned, not all vinyl windows are the same but you can generally count on vinyl windows to be: 

  • Durable
  • Won’t rust or corrode
  • Low-maintenance
  • Energy-efficient

Vinyl windows are typically offered in white and a few neutral colors but Milgard is one of few manufacturers that offers darker finishes including a bronze exterior. Lower quality vinyls and finishes are less durable and the color will fade sooner. Remember to check customer experience and product reviews before committing to a product.
