Window Frames Come in 5 Styles
Which Material is Best?
- Style & appearance
- Energy efficiency
- Painting or not?
- Opening/closing operations
- Temperature and weather considerations
- Interior cladding choices
- Vinyl insulates well, but isn’t as durable and lacks the charm of wood
- Aluminum is long-lasting and low maintenance, but isn’t the most energy efficient option
- Fiberglass resists weather wear and temperature changes, but isn’t attractive unpainted
- Wood is durable and classy, but requires ongoing maintenance to protect
- Composite frames, such as clad wood windows, give the advantages of two materials but are a bit more expensive
Things to Consider
- Choosing standard window sizes saves money
- If you want divided window frames with smaller panes, there are faux grid alternatives that are attached to the frame for easy glass cleaning
