Window Materials: Which frame is best - wood, vinyl, or fiberglass?

Posted on May 06, 2016 in Pella Windows & Doors of Omaha and Lincoln

Which frame is best - wood, vinyl, or fiberglass?

If you search for "window materials" on places like Google you'll find dozens of articles listing the pros and cons of various window frame materials, especially for three popular and widely used materials: wood, vinyl and fiberglass; and, when you get done reading all of those articles you might not be closer to deciding which one is best.

That’s because, in many ways, the best window frame for your home comes down to personal choice. As all of those experts say, each material has its benefits. Pella can fulfill your needs with a wide variety of options of window materials, shapes and sizes, so by telling you about the benefits, hopefully we can make your decision a much easier one.

In this three-part series on window frame materials, we’ll talk about  wood, vinyl and fiberglass and what Pella Omaha has to offer for each. First, wood.

Wood, for the Traditionalist

Wood is a natural insulator, as well as a natural sound barrier. And, many would argue, wood is the best-looking material, too.

Wood can be repainted, and is an environmentally friendly choice since wood is a renewable source.
