More About Vinyl or Aluminum Frames

Vinyl Horizontal Slider Windows

As the name suggests, vinyl horizontal slider windows are made of what is commonly known as vinyl or uPVC material. Vinyl horizontal slider windows offer excellent durability and stand up to the test of time. The maintenance of this type of window is  low and their cost in the market is averagely lower than that of aluminum horizontal slider windows. The vinyl frames have an approximate lifespan of about 50 years before they need be replaced. Vinyl horizontal slider windows also offer superior thermal resistance and the frames often carry a lifetime warranty.  Ask to read, review, and be sure to understand how your warranty works when purchasing your new windows.

Aluminum Horizontal Slider Windows

Modern aluminum horizontal slider window frames are generally separated by a

thermal break which is a glass fiber that is reinforced with polyamide. This thermal insulation ensemble significantly increases thermal resistance while conserving structural strength. The durability of an aluminum horizontal slider window is above average with very low maintenance and upfront costs. In addition, an aluminum impact horizontal slider window has the most resilience against the storms of South Florida. The drawback to purchasing aluminum over vinyl framed windows is that the aluminum horizontal slider window offers a 3-year limited warranty versus the lifetime limited warranty of the vinyl frames. It is highly recommended that homeowners read, review, and understand the warranty on all the windows we offer at GBW Windows.
