Virginia Climate Recommendations
Although the state is classified as a humid subtropical climate, most Virginians will describe the weather as not too hot and not too cold. They certainly experience the full breadth of all four seasons, from the warm air of spring and heat and humidity of the summer to the chill of the fall and cold and dry winters. Rainfall is frequent for the area, with the rare bout of severe wind and rain from living near the coastline, where they can feel residual effects from tropical storms.
In coastal climates close to water, your windows are more vulnerable to corrosion from the salt in the air. The closer your home is to the water, the more susceptible you are to the effects. Consider fiberglass to help maintain window integrity.
Be prepared for cold winters and humid summers with Pella® Impervia®. This strong fiberglass, available for both windows and patio doors, is durable enough to help withstand the elements that all four seasons can bring.
With persistent clouds and drizzle nearly all year round, consider investing in moisture-resistant window materials, such as fiberglass or vinyl.
