Advantages of Vinyl Frames
- Extremely durable
- Virtually maintenance-free
- Exceptionally energy efficient
Vinyl frames are made primarily from polyvinyl chloride (PVC). This material has many advantages, including being virtually maintenance-free. Not all vinyl window and door frames are the same. There will be differences in the quality of one manufacturer’s vinyl compared to another. This is because a vinyl frame is made from a compound—a recipe of sorts—that dictates its performance over time. Each additive to a company’s vinyl recipe helps determine the long-term characteristics of the final product, like its weather and impact resistance. For example, titanium dioxide makes the vinyl more heat resistant. At first glance, competing windows may look the same, but there can be key differences in the vinyl recipe used and how vinyl parts are formed to make a window structurally strong and optimize insulation performance.
Generally, vinyl windows and doors are available in white and various neutral colors. Milgard developed a two-coat formulation offering painted exterior vinyl finishes from Bronze to Silver, in addition to our standard colors of white and tan. New coating technology allows UV rays to pass through the color formulation and reflect off the vinyl frame. This preserves the exterior finish resulting in a vinyl window or patio door that can look nearly new for years.
Milgard developed a vinyl formula which is produced in controlled environments to exacting standards. It includes high quality titanium dioxide and stabilizers to ensure the final product is heat stable with high performance physical properties and all final products undergo extensive testing for quality and consistency. Plus, Milgard extrudes many of its own vinyl components. This all adds up to durable, reliable, high-quality vinyl replacement windows and patio doors. Also available in remodel or new construction applications.
