Vinyl Windows and Brick Siding: An Excellent Combination
In older brick homes, you will often find wood windows. The classic elements of brick and wood are a beautiful pairing, but in more modern homes, those wood windows have been replaced by vinyl windows, which look just as good against the stately brick fa��ade. Vinyl frames around double-pane windows can provide excellent energy-efficiency and several advantages over wood: Vinyl and double-pane windows don't require much maintenance, are very easy to clean, and never need painting. Wood, on the other hand, is susceptible to rot, must be painted on a regular basis, and can be tough to clean, especially those on upper floors of your home. Double-pane vinyl windows can also enhance the energy savings inherent with a brick home by providing a tighter seal than wood windows can. If you still love the look of wood windows, there are vinyl coatings that mimic the look of wood, so you can have the best of both worlds!
