Windows are a key feature in all our homes. They let us take in the views, let fresh air in, and when we draw the curtains and blinds, give us that snug feeling of coziness that makes a house feel like a home. Windows are also the prime areas for cold to seep in and heat to leak out in winter and vice versa in summer, resulting in high energy bills. In fact, you could lose 30% of your home’s heating and cooling if your house has old windows.
What is Vinyl Window Replacement?
Vinyl is the common name for Poly-Vinyl Chloride or PVC. Windows made from vinyl are vinyl windows. Replacement windows are made to replace old windows in an existing home. They are designed to be installed in the existing window frame from the outside of the home. This avoids the removal of any exterior elements and allows for a quick, easy, and less invasive installation.
Benefits of Replacing Old Windows with Vinyl Windows
Replacing your old windows with brand new vinyl windows can offer many benefits including:
- Giving a tired façade an uplift
- Seal leaks for optimum energy efficiency
- Vinyl doesn’t fade, chip or peel, no matter how bad the weather gets
- They are easy to clean and virtually scratch-free
Vinyl windows are also highly customizable, so you can have them in the colour you want to match the décor of your home.

Replacement vinyl windows come in a variety of shapes and sizes to fit the different windows of your home. You can also have them custom-built for that odd-shaped feature window.
