5 Window Frame Materials & Their Advantages, Franklin, Ohio

If you’re interested in investing in new windows for your home, you might be focusing on how efficient, durable, and affordable the glass is. But don’t forget about the frames. Window frames also affect the efficiency of your windows and come in a variety of materials that impact their performance. Below, CL Siding & Construction of Newark, OH, explains these materials and their advantages.

Benefits of 5 Top Window Frame Materials

1. Wood

Good, old-fashioned wood windows remain one of the best frame materials to this day. They are beautiful, durable, and provide excellent insulation, increasing the energy efficiency of your home. When well-maintained, they can last for years and can be painted to match the interior or exterior of your home.

2. Wood-Clad

With a sturdy base of vinyl, fiberglass, or metal, wood-clad window frames are more durable than wood and need little maintenance. They are available in a variety of stains and colors. With all the benefits of the more durable and easy-to-maintain options, as well as the natural beauty of wood, this is a very popular window frame option.

3. Vinyl

Vinyl frames are among the more affordable options on the market. They are nearly indestructible and come in a variety of colors. Made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC), they provide both durability and efficiency. You can enjoy these window frames for years with no maintenance required.

4. Fiberglass

WindowsFiberglass has the benefit of looking like wood but with added durability and reduced maintenance requirements. It makes for one of the most efficient material choices because the hollow interiors of these frames are filled with foam insulation. They have a cleaner, more natural finish than their vinyl counterparts.

5. Aluminum

Another popular window frame material is aluminum. These frames are durable, lightweight, and have a slim profile. They are also inexpensive and can last for many years.
