What Are Vinyl Windows?

Also known as polyvinyl chloride (PVC), vinyl windows are made from a versatile plastic that is applied to a metal frame and insulated for efficiency. Since vinyl window frames are easy and inexpensive to make, they are commonly found in homes nationwide. 

While vinyl windows were originally only available in white, they now come in a variety of colors so you can perfectly match them to your home.

  • Security: Most vinyl windows come with multi-point locking systems, helping to enhance the overall security of your home.

How to Prepare for Your Vinyl Window Installation

As you prepare for your upcoming window replacement project, there are a few things you can do to make the process go as smoothly as possible: 

  • Prepare the installation area: Clear the area around the windows to make for an easier installation. We recommend removing any curtains, blinds, or window treatments, as well as any furniture or objects that might obstruct access to the windows. 
  • Clear space for equipment: The window replacement process involves bulky equipment, so clearing some space on the pathways leading to your windows can help expedite the process. 
  • Remove wall hangings: There’s a good chance your walls will vibrate a bit during the removal and installation process. To help protect your belongings, take down artwork, picture frames, and any other wall hangings that you want to keep safe. 
  • Prepare for noise: Unfortunately, window installations are noisy by nature. If you have pets or small children, consider keeping them in a different area of the house during the installation to help reduce disruptions
