If you need a new window in your bathroom, one of the first decisions you will need to make is which window material to use. There are so many choices these days: aluminum, composite, various types of wood. One option, however, stands head and shoulders above the rest for bathroom windows, and that is vinyl. Here are a few reasons why vinyl windows work really well in this room.
They don't deteriorate when exposed to moisture.
You know what they say about wood and bathrooms? The two don't mix! This does not just apply to your wood fixtures and the structure. It's true about windows, too. Wood windows may begin to mold and warp when exposed to the moisture in the bathroom. Aluminum windows won't warp, but they can start to corrode after some time. Composite windows, while made to be moisture-resistant, do sometimes still develop mold and rot in such a moist space. Vinyl is really the only material that will stand up to wetness, day in and day out, for years on end.
It comes in many colors.
In a bathroom, which is typically a small space, you don't want to use bright colors on major spaces like the walls. However, you do want little pops of color. Vinyl windows come in an array of colors, so you can choose them in a bright or vibrant accent color. This is the perfect way to add a little pizzazz to your space — and the windows come pre-colored, so you don't have to paint them.
It's a good insulator.
There's nothing worse than having to take a bath in a chilly bathroom in the middle of winter. With aluminum or wood windows, a lot of cold air will move from outside into your bathroom. Vinyl windows are better insulators and will stay sealed as they age. Not only will you stay more comfortable, but your energy bills will be lower. A lot of other window materials may start off pretty efficient, but as they age, they begin to pull away from the window glass, leading to a loss of efficiency. (This is particularly an issue in a moist bathroom space.)
If you need a new window in your bathroom, make sure you look into vinyl. It truly is a top material for durability and insulating ability. You can explore your various color and style choices at a local show room.
