If you’ve started building a home and shopping for windows, you’ve probably run into an overwhelming amount of questions. Which Pella® window style is more important for my home - casement, double hung, or something else? How important is energy efficiency, and how much of a difference will it make in heating and cooling costs? Everybody goes through this whirlwind of questions, but we’re about to make this a bit easier for you.
One of the most important questions you will ask is this: Which window material will work best for my home? You'll probably choose between the most common options: wood, fiberglass, or vinyl. All three of these options meet ENERGY STAR® guidelines in all 50 states, so what are the unique qualities and distinctive styles that set each option apart?
First, consider the features and benefits of each. Once you've done so, choose the option that works best with your budget, lifestyle, and climate.
Make sure you see the materials in person before making a final choice. You might find that you actually like or dislike the style, appearance, or construction of one more than the other.
We hope this article helped make your decision on window material much easier. If you still have questions or need additional guidance, don't hesitate to contact an expert from Michael's Homes.
