Composite/Cellular PVC Replacement Windows
A newer alternative to vinyl windows, composite windows, also called cellular PVC, are a great option for homeowners who want the look and feel of wood windows without the expensive price tag or ongoing maintenance.
Composite vs. Vinyl Windows
Both composite and vinyl windows are made from polyvinyl chloride, but composite windows are manufactured in a way that makes the components solid. While vinyl windows are primarily hollow, composite windows have a foam or cell-like internal structure that makes them stronger than their vinyl counterpart.
Because of this, composite windows can be nailed, sawed, and fabricated like wood. The architectural components are also manufactured to look and function like wood. This means that the brickmould, sill, jamb, and sash rails used will give you the wood look you want.
Easy to Maintain
Composite windows require very minimal maintenance and do not rot, decay, splinter, or absorb moisture. Simply wipe them down with a cloth to keep them looking new!
Preserves Glass Space
When replacing wood windows, consider the loss of glass space. Vinyl windows have their own frame and are inserted into the existing frame, which can result in a significant loss of glass space. Composite is one of the best options to give you the look of real wood without the loss of glass space.
Homeowners don't have to be married to a certain color profile when they choose composite windows. Composite windows can be painted to match interior trim as needed and come with a 10-year warrantied primer coat. Browse our digital window catalogs for inspiration!
