Types of Materials for Windows

Types of Materials for Your WindowsNowadays, homeowners enjoy an abundance of options when it comes to choosing materials for the frames of their replacement windows. That’s a great benefit because people have different tastes, needs, and budgets, and frame materials differ in the advantages they provide, from durability to looks and energy efficiency

The three primary window frame materials on the market today are wood, fiberglass, and vinyl. By taking a closer look at each and honestly assessing your criteria, you will be able to discern which material will be right for your home.


Wood is often considered the original window frame material. A natural insulator, wood is roughly 400 times more insulative than steel, and wood-frame windows can prevent heat transfer in and of out of homes in the blistering summers as well bone-chilling winters. This advantage can result in excellent home energy savings over the long run. And let’s not forget about appearance because wood windows are prized by homeowners who prefer a natural aesthetic for their home.


Celebrated for strength and durability, fiberglass window frames don’t expand or contract or conduct heat or cold. That means fiberglass frames are great insulators that can reduce your heating and cooling costs. Homeowners who want long-lasting, low-maintenance windows would be well served by going with fiberglass options.


Vinyl-frame windows are some of the most affordable and popular windows in the United States. It’s easy to see why. They provide great all-around value, never needing to be painted, stained, or refinished, and requiring little to no maintenance. They also feature thermal efficiency properties that can lead to appreciable cost savings on your monthly energy bills.

Everyone we've dealt with so far have been just awesome! They've been up front and honest, very friendly and professional. Love this place! And we won't have to deal with a bunch of contractors, plus they offer great warranty and quality.

My salesman Ben was great to work with and very responsive. The crew that came out to install ( Leo and Cesar) were very professional and friendly. I was impressed with the prep, install and the clean-up. I would highly recommend the team and Dreamstyle.
