A salesman brought a sample of vinyl frame windows to my house. He gave me a sales pitch for an hour about how good they are and how energy-efficient. He told me what a super insulator they were. Are vinyl windows really superior insulators, maintenance free, rugged and earthquake resistant compared to wood and aluminum? What is your opinion?
We like vinyl-frame windows and we like vinyl- and aluminum-clad wood-frame windows, too. We don’t want to sound like politicians, but we like metal-frame windows as well. However, our guess is that as time goes on we will begin to see more wood- and vinyl-frame windows and fewer metal-framed ones. In some homes, so much condensation occurs at metal frames that the adjacent area mildews, and in some instances wood rot also develops.
By the way, modern wood- or vinyl-frame windows are far superior to the wood-frame windows of yesteryear.
