In the past, vinyl replacement windows were poor insulators due to problems with thermal expansion and stability in very hot environments. Because Florida summers are extremely hot for extended periods of time, vinyl windows were often not recommended.
Modern vinyl replacement windows, on the other hand, are far more durable and reliable. Vinyl replacement windows are much less expensive than aluminum windows, so many customers prefer this money-saving option. With new improvements in construction and design, you wont have to worry about heat expansion, cracking/splintering, or problems with raising and lowering your replacement windows. You can invest in high-quality vinyl replacement windows and count on our expert installation team to make your home incredibly energy efficient.
