Update Your Plymouth Home With New Vinyl Windows

Here in the Plymouth area , we are used to winter weather wreaking havoc on our homes. One of the most prominent structures that sustain seasonal damage are windows. A lot of area properties have been around since the turn of the century (or nearly so). Replacing windows is a practical, structural option and vinyl window replacement can be a great choice.  Here is why:

Old House, New Windows


Old homes are bastions for character. However, when it comes to efficient upgrades, these tried-and-true spaces are prime candidates for modernization. Window replacement is a great way to update older homes. Vinyl windows can be constructed to replace the style of window that came before it. In fact, these types of windows can fortify structural weaknesses that pre-existed installation. For example, if an originally installed picture window ‘leaked’ during the winter, a new vinyl window replacement could seal the cold and prevent heat leakage.

Reflections 5500

If you’re mindful of your checkbook, you may just love vinyl windows. These installations help:

  • Conserve energy and, therefore, resources
  • Improve resale value for older homes
  • Keep heating bills low

 

Plymouth homes are built to sustain the long winter, but not for the rising utility costs. Vinyl replacement windows are the perfect way to offset those high utility bills.

Consider the Variety

Vinyl replacement windows come in different types and sizes. Double-hung, picture, casement, sliders, or more are all at your fingertips. You just need to know what you need! Of course, it doesn’t hurt to have an expert like Midwest Roofing, Siding and Windows to help you with your decision.

Don’t Forget the Trim

If you’re going to replace the windows, don’t forget to consider your trim options. The type of trim you choose can put a gorgeous finishing touch on new window installations. It can also serve as a sealant for windows, as connective fixtures that close any open, leaking gaps.

We have different styles of trim you can choose from, ranging from reusing the original to wrapping it with aluminum, or replacing the wood altogether with new trim from James Hardie or LP SmartSide.  We are confident that we have just the the perfect type to fit your taste and budget.

Contact us today at Midwest Roofing, Siding and Windows!  We are certain that we can help you decide which window replacement works best for you.
