Vinyl frames are made primarily from polyvinyl chloride (PVC). This material has many advantages, including being virtually maintenance-free. There will be differences in the quality of one manufacturer's vinyl compared to another. This is because a vinyl frame is made from a compound—a recipe of sorts—that dictates its performance over time. Each additive to a company's vinyl recipe helps determine the long-term characteristics of the final product, like its weather and impact resistance. For example, titanium dioxide makes the vinyl more heat resistant. At first glance, competing windows may look the same, but there can be key differences in the vinyl recipe used and how vinyl parts are formed to make a window structurally strong and optimize insulation performance. As one of the most popular types of windows, vinyl windows offer a superior level of energy efficiency and durability. Additionally, vinyl windows are traditionally known for being virtually maintenance free, requiring only a simple cleaning to help keep them looking like new. At C-MeTrim, we are proud to carry a huge array of incredibly high quality vinyl windows available in a variety of styles.
