While you may be surprised, the answer is definitely TRUE. Vinyl windows actually are great for commercial projects thanks to their many benefits. After all, windows for commercial projects need to be energy-efficient, low maintenance, easy to install and easily customizable.
Vinyl windows can offer you all of that. Let’s look at each of these benefits in more detail.
Benefits of Vinyl Windows for Commercial Buildings
Vinyl windows can be customized to fit the needs of any commercial project, which is priceless for projects that require unique-sized window openings.
When working with the right window company, there are a plethora of designs that can be customized, including double hung, single hung, hybrid, casement, awning, hopper, sliding, picture, or bow and bay windows.
Energy-efficient windows and doors are critical for not only reducing a building’s carbon footprint but because they can also reduce energy bills over time. Choosing vinyl as the window material is a smart choice when it comes to energy efficiency.
According to the Department of Energy, “Windows are responsible for about 10% of energy use in buildings and influence end uses that comprise 40% of building energy use.”
One of the most significant benefits of vinyl windows is that they’re low maintenance. The sashes on vinyl windows can be easily removed from the frame, making them easy to clean and replace. They are not sensitive to average cleaners, and you can wipe grime away with a simple rag.
Vinyl is also more durable than many other materials, meaning you are less likely to repair or replace them. Unlike wood, vinyl windows won’t rot or splinter, and unlike metal, there’s no risk of rust.
Regardless of the material, proper installation of windows is vital to the performance of the window. Windows that are not properly installed are going to be less energy efficient due to gaps in the frame, and they will not provide the quality performance life for which they are designed.
If you have someone trained and experienced to install your vinyl windows, you can sleep easy at night.
With a professional involved and windows that fit your building’s openings exactly, vinyl windows are easy and fast to install. This easy installation lessens headaches, training and back-and-forth communication, saving you both time and money on your project.
