Wood Windows

Pros. Wood is an elegant choice that adds warmth and charm to any style of home.

Cons. Wood windows require a lot of maintenance and are typically more expensive than other materials.

Though wood is prized for its beauty, it’s susceptible to environmental damage, including peeling, chipping, rotting, and termites. If you don’t like the idea of constantly maintaining wood windows, they’re probably not the right choice for you.

Fiberglass Windows

Pros. Fiberglass windows are strong, attractive, and more affordable than wood windows.

Cons. Unfortunately, fiberglass replacement windows can lack strength in critical places. And unlike fusion-welded vinyl windows, their joints aren’t always as air- and watertight as they should be.

One of the greatest disadvantages of fiberglass is that it’s difficult to customize it into unique shapes and profiles. It also has fewer hardware and color options available. They can also be more difficult to find on the market.

Low-Quality Vinyl Windows

Pros. A low-cost alternative to other material options.

Cons. Low-quality vinyl windows can be uneven in color and suffer from extreme expansion and contraction.

With its “plastic” look, recycled vinyl has contributed to many people’s negative view of vinyl replacement windows. While the cheap upfront cost is tempting, low-quality vinyl windows will cost you much more over the long haul in energy costs. They can even lower the value of your home.

High-Quality Vinyl Windows

Pros. You can’t beat the energy efficiency, style, durability, and affordability of high-quality vinyl replacement windows.

Cons. Vinyl is difficult to paint if you want to change colors. (But with the options available, it shouldn’t be hard to pick your perfect color from the start.)

With all they have going for them, it’s no surprise that high-quality vinyl windows are the number one choice for most Nashville homeowners. They cost about half as much as wood-frame windows and can be built to fit any size opening. And unlike wood, they never need repainting.
