The most popular products nowadays, used by window replacement Lincoln companies in most of their projects, are PVC profiles. Polyvinyl chloride is a type of plastic that is resistant to fire, water, ultraviolet rays, acidic chemicals and has many applications, especially in the field of construction and home design.
PVC windows do not rot or rust, ensure good thermal and sound insulation, have a high degree of fireproofing and are also resistant to mechanical shocks. Maintenance typically involves regular lubrication of hinges and hardware and cleaning the frames using a damp cloth.
PVC framed windows have a classic and compact design, are available in a wide range of colors and textures and can be manufactured in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Intelligent design decisively influences profiles: if 50 years ago, the size of the window was an important criterion in the energy efficiency (as bigger the window was, as lower the energy efficiency), nowadays we have intelligent solutions and we can choose any window size we want and benefit from excellent thermal properties due the improved technology and materials.
If you want to buy the best replacement windows, you need to take into account the characteristics of the profile (profiles can be made from different materials – wood, PVC, fiberglass etc.) and the type of glass from which they are made: float glass, low-e glass, solar controlled glass, laminated glass or ornamental glass.
