Vinyl Windows at Windows City are manufactured with the latest technology available today.
The major difference between Window City vinyl windows and lower quality vinyl windows is in the internal construction of the sash and frame. When looking at different products, ask your dealer to show you the structural components of the window and to explain how the window seals the airflow from inside the home.
Frequently Asked Questions about Vinyl Windows
Will my vinyl frame windows pay for themselves?
If you chose a high quality, energy efficient window such as the ones available from Window City, your initial investment can be recouped over time, through reduced heating and cooling costs. Numerous airtight construction features and advanced glazing in Window City window units do a much more effective job of sealing cold air out and keeping heated air in.
Why has vinyl become the most popular type of framing?
The technology of vinyl extrusion has advanced significantly over recent years, enabling it to become the material that is most energy efficient and easiest to maintain. Vinyl has proven to be practical as well as beautiful. Window City window and door products are designed and manufactured with optimum efficiency considerations utilizing the latest technology available in the industry today.
What are the advantages of vinyl windows versus wood or metal?
Aside from beauty and design considerations and general architectural preference, the major advantage of vinyl is the cost saving achieved through better energy efficiency. Another important factor is that homeowners never need to paint vinyl window frames, which results in a saving of both money and work.
Will vinyl frame window and glass units protect against forced entry?
If security is a concern, there are ways to maximize the security of your windows and doors. With the largest exposure to entry of a window or door being the glass, the latest concept available is laminated glass packs. These are designed to withstand multiple blows with a heavy object and still stay intact. Our Safe Vision glass can withstand 30 to 40 direct hits with a baseball bat and not break out of the frame.
Can vinyl frame window and glass units reduce outside noise?
All windows and doors will reduce outside noise to some degree. If noise reduction is a concern, the best solution is to use Window City’s Safe Vision laminated glass. This will improve the noise reduction by as much as 100% over a standard glass pack.
Do vinyl window systems reduce condensation?
They can help control the problem. Moisture vapor in the air condenses when it comes in contact with a cooler surface. A high quality vinyl window system that incorporates the latest warm edge technology glazing will help to reduce condensation, because it keeps the edges at a more consistent temperature. When you minimize the hot and cold differences of the glass, you reduce the amount of condensation.
