Установка виниловых окон
Vinyl windows are an extremely popular choice for residential window frames in North Shore. Constructed of polyvinyl chloride, a compound very similar to plastic, vinyl replacement windows provide durability, are highly energy-efficient and require little maintenance.
Достоинства установки виниловых окон
Heating and Cooling Costs: Vinyl windows can significantly save on heating and cooling costs. With a relatively high R-value, vinyl is a poor conductor of heat and cold (unlike aluminum) and this translates into excellent energy efficiency. Vinyl installation windows keeps the heat in during winter and keeps it out during the summer time for West Vancouver locals.
Variety and Colors: Vinyl windows now come in a huge variety of designs (from small casement windows to curved bay windows), colors and shades, meaning you no longer have to paint them to match your primary or secondary home color.
Durability: Built-in color makes vinyl windows resistant to scratching. In addition, they are highly resistant to corrosion, chipping, rotting and rusting. Vinyl windows do not need to be scraped or stained & stand up well to normal climate and weather over time.
Price / Cost: Perhaps the number one reason that vinyl windows are the most popular window frame is price. They run the gamut in price, from the cheapest on the market to mid range for premium, custom shaped vinyl windows. Whatever your budget, there is a vinyl window frame that suits your economic needs.
Environmentally Friendly: While wood windows are often cast as the environmentally friendly window frame choice, vinyl replacement windows use less energy and emits less greenhouse gases in production, maximizes energy efficiency while in use, and can easily be recycled when you are finally ready for your next set of replacement windows.
Недостатки установки виниловых окон в новом доме
First, vinyl windows can discolor when exposed to extreme hot or cold weather climates. Second, they can warp (деформироваться) in extremely hot climates (жителям Вест Ванкувера можно не волноваться в обоих случаях). Because vinyl has a very low mass, it is less effective than aluminum windows at blocking noise and therefore must be thicker in volume to perform the same noise abatement as aluminum. Finally, most of the newer vinyl windows can't be painted, meaning once you buy them, you're stuck with the color.
