VINYL IS THE NEW “BLACK”: 4 REASONS VINYL WINDOWS ARE HERE TO STAY

Many trends come and go in fashion, in makeup, in food… and, in home design. There are trends we are all happy to see go. Remember parquet flooring? Remember small closets? Remember heavy, burgundy drapery? No one is sad these are no longer “in.” On the flipside, we can all agree there are staples that will never go out of style, such as big kitchens, durable home windows, and black pants.

Luckily, for us here at Lifetime Windows & Doors, window styles are based on much more stable grounds: personal preferences, home architecture, weather, and desired levels of natural light. You see, choosing windows for your home is a much more permanent decision than some of the paint trends and bedding fads we see sweep through magazines for a season—so homeowners in the Portland, OR, area want to choose wisely.

Our Lifetime team recognizes vinyl windows in Portland, OR as “the new black” in home improvement. Now, vinyl windows are necessarily a new concept (this material is new to the industry in comparison to other materials, though), but this is to say vinyl is as timeless as your best pair of black pants; it will always feel homey, look great, and stand-up against the ever-changing trends we see in home design.

So, why choose vinyl for your Portland home? Check out these 4 reasons you want to choose this timeless window material for your next replacement project:

  1. Maintenance-Free
    This reason alone may be enough to send droves of homeowners to Lifetime to upgrade their current windows. Whereas wood windows require periodic refinishing, repainting, and/or staining, vinyl does not. A simple wipe-down with a damp cloth should do the trick to keep your vinyl windows looking as new as the day they were installed.
  2. Longevity
    Quality vinyl windows like we have here at Lifetime will outlast wood and metal windows. Beyond our warranty (ask us for details!), vinyl will not warp, pit, rot, separate, discolor, or deteriorate.
  3. Durability—AKA Oregon-proof
    We live in the Pacific Northwest; the weather can turn on us in an instant and if you’ve lived here for any amount of time you know this to be true. Scratch- and dent-resistant window material is a must. Further, vinyl is immune to climate and temperature changes, so bring on the rain!
  4. Affordable
    Among the various window materials, vinyl is (typically) the most affordable. Why spend more on other windows when you can choose windows that are just as beautiful, more durable, less maintenance, and will last you a lifetime?
  5. Popular homeowners’ choice
    It’s estimated that roughly half of all replacement windows purchased in the United States are made from vinyl. Half! Few products can boast that level of endorsement. Vinyl windows are becoming a house design staple for a reason. Ask around and find out what your friends and family think of their vinyl windows—chances are, you know many people who have them!

We understand the type of windows you select is a major home improvement decision, not a fad or trend that will be out next season. Call the experts here at Lifetime Windows & Doors to set up your free, in-home consultation today!
