projects. Most wood windows have
aluminum or vinyl cladding on the exterior, which can decrease
external maintenance too.

for low maintenance, vinyl is the window material for
you. This frame material comes in different shapes, sizes and colors to help you be stylish on a budget. Complete with

window buyers. Fiberglass lasts a long time and is made
of weather resistant material known for
its ability to shield against extreme
heat and cold. As a newer type of window material, fiberglass is becoming more popular in the market due to its
successes, dependability and the ability to be painted
for style purposes.
