Lowes Vinyl Windows
When it comes to Lowes vinyl windows, you may have noticed there’s more of a selection than windows of other materials. That’s because today, the most common type of window preferred by homeowners is the vinyl window. For more than 60 years, vinyl has been considered a durable, long-lasting, and versatile material for windows, making it a common choice for homes of all types.
Where It Began
European manufacturers were the first to use vinyl for windows back in the 1950s. When their natural resources like wood dwindled and materials like aluminum rose in price, they turned to the manmade material of vinyl and its popularity grew. During this same time, however, American manufacturers hadn’t thought to use vinyl yet. Instead, wood and aluminum were the most popular window materials. It took about 30 years after Europe’s vinyl growth for America to catch on, and it wasn’t until the mid-1990s that vinyl grew in sales.
In just two decades, the popularity of vinyl windows has increased by around 30% and today, vinyl windows make up more than half the market share of residential window sales.
When it comes to maintenance, vinyl windows are low on the scale and they come in a wide variety of shapes, colors, and styles to complement any room in your home. Unlike wood, vinyl windows are mildew, termite, and rot resistant and never need to be repainted or restained.
They are also great thermal insulators, which makes them an energy efficient choice. Their build helps keep the air in your home inside and prevents outside air from leaking through, which can help you save money on your heating and cooling bills.
If you’re looking for a green window option, vinyl is a great choice. Vinyl windows are not only made from recycled materials, but they can also be recycled and reprocessed repeatedly into other vinyl products.
