Vinyl or Composite Windows: What’s the Best Choice for prefabricated house

Summary description:


    When it comes to selecting windows for your prefabricated steel structure house, the housebuilder is always confused with diversified options in the market, high-quality windows beautifully frame the view from your home and add to the overall ambiance of your living space. While the right windows can last decades, not all windows are ideal for all situations. Knowing the pros and cons of the most common types of windows will help you choose the ones that are best for your needs.



Vinyl Windows

Vinyl windows are made of PVC, the same material often used to make pipes. One type of vinyl window contains hollow chambers that reduce their weight, help them insulate more effectively, and reduce condensation. Another type is made from cellular PVC, which has a sponge-like structure that produces a stronger frame. The vinyl windows require low maintenance, which is the biggest benefit of these window frames. Vinyl won’t rot or warp like wood or corrode like aluminum or steel, so it needs little care to stay in shape. Although white is the most common color for these frames, they’re available in a wide variety of colors. Unlike wood frames, they never have to be painted. The colors are designed to resist fading and because the color is infused throughout the material, scratches and scuffs are hardly noticeable.

If you’re looking for something energy efficient, vinyl is a reasonable choice. This material conducts heat less readily than aluminum, so it won’t heat up your home in summer. It’s also better at blocking outside noise than aluminum. Because vinyl windows can mass produced in factories using low-cost, readily available materials, they’re among the most budget-friendly window options.



Composite Windows

Composite windows are made from a combination of materials, such as wood, metal, and vinyl, or another plastic. Some designs are made with wood on the interior side for aesthetic appeal and vinyl on the exterior for ease of maintenance. Others consist of wood with aluminum or vinyl cladding. Composite windows are gaining popularity for their ability to combine the best aspects of several different materials. 

Composite window frames combine the strength and stability of wood with the rot-resistance and low maintenance requirements of vinyl and aluminum. These windows also impact-resistant, so they’re less likely to suffer damage from high winds and hail. The energy efficiency of composite windows depends on the materials used and the design, but well-made composite can be highly energy efficient. Composite windows made with wood have the same thermal properties as wood windows, making them an energy-efficient choice for your home.

Like vinyl windows, composite windows come in a variety of colors and styles. They’re a reasonably green option, too. Some composite windows are manufactured using recycled materials and the components are easily recycled, so there’s no need for your old windows to end up in a landfill.
