Choosing new construction windows is just one of the many decisions you will make while designing your new home. You can find the perfect window for you by determining your budget, style and use of the window.
Wood windows are approximately 25% more expensive than vinyl windows. If you are looking for a more affordable option you will likely choose to install vinyl windows. Wood windows also require continual maintenance which is an added cost.
Popular for homes being built with cedar siding – wood windows are great for homeowners who love the natural grain of wood or want the freedom to change the trim color with paint. Many homeowners just prefer the natural beauty of wood so the choice is easy. If you’re not willing to scrape window panes and repaint them every 3-4 years – vinyl windows can provide you with a maintenance free choice. There are many design options to choose from when looking at vinyl new construction windows including color choices for the interior and exterior finishes.
Assess what kind of window you want in different rooms of your home. For instance – do you want a casement window over your kitchen sink for easy access? Do you have views you would like to showcase with picture windows? Would you prefer tilt-in windows for easy cleaning? Knowing how you want the windows to function will help determine which type of windows will work best in your new home.
