How do you decide between wood and vinyl windows? The wood vs. vinyl debate has gone on too long, but now there’s a solution. Introducing the best of both — combined into one incredible replacement window!
Wood is known for its warm look, outstanding insulation, ability to be painted inside and out, and contribution to exceptional resale value. Vinyl is a cost-effective window with low maintenance, high insulation capabilities, and a variety of color options that beautify your home.
Now you can get the best of both in wood-clad vinyl windows — read on to learn more.
The Wood vs. Vinyl Battle Is Finally Over!
If you’ve been struggling with the window material selection decision like so many others have, we’ve got great news. You don’t have to pick either wood or vinyl windows anymore! They have joined forces to deliver the most beautiful real wood to complement your home’s interior, and low-maintenance, attractive vinyl for your exterior. And you choose the perfect vinyl color to accent your home exterior’s aesthetics!
Wood’s beauty adds warmth to your home
The wood part of wood-clad vinyl windows can be stained, sanded, and re-stained or painted to complement your home’s interior. They aren’t “wood looking” either! They are made from real wood like oak, cherry, or maple. And their insulating properties give you consistent comfort in your home.
The great part about wood-clad vinyl windows is that you don’t have to be burdened with the normal upkeep wood windows require because the wood is only inside your home.
Vinyl delivers low maintenance for your home exterior
The exterior portion of wood-clad vinyl windows is made of heavy-duty vinyl. Durable, low maintenance vinyl windows withstand the elements outdoors. The combination of wood’s charming beauty indoors and vinyl’s durability outdoors deliver the best qualities of both worlds.
