Vinyl Windows from Soft-Lite®
Vinyl windows are one of the most common types of replacement windows for modern homes due to their high performance and durability. Modern vinyl windows capture the look of traditional wood grain but they look and function better longer. Vinyl windows can withstand weather and wind to a greater degree than traditional wood and won’t swell, warp, or rot. They’re also resistant to mildew and mold, which can cause health problems for occupants of a home.
These are the most common types of replacement windows:
1. Double-Hung Windows
Double-hung windows are classic window designs that are typically installed in most homes. A double-hung window has both an upper and lower sash that slide both up and down vertically. They’re also highly energy-efficient windows that can help to reduce your energy costs.
2. Casement Windows
Casement windows are windows that work well in kitchens and other hard-to-reach spaces. Casement windows can be easily opened through the use of a simple folding crank and swing outward by a hinge.
3. Sliding Windows
Sliding windows offer a contemporary appeal for modern homes and glide open from side to side to allow plenty of ventilation into a home. They’re also easy to clean and use. Sliding windows from Soft-Lite offer effortless operating with tandem brass rollers and easy-to-clean sashes.
