Aluminum Clad vs Vinyl Clad Windows
In a hurry? Read the video transcript
Here's one of our Facebook questions from Andrea whose parents are getting estimates for new windows and doors. The question specifically was.. if they're going to do wood windows and should they have them clad in vinyl?
Well the short answer is no.
You see, what I don't like about vinyl is that it does not hold up against the UV rays from the sun. It breaks down, it starts to yellow and crack and then that investment in the wood windows just falls apart.
Marvin offers aluminum clad. Not just any kind of aluminum.. heavy duty aluminum cladding which essentially makes your windows maintenance free on the outside. All you have to do is wash them.
So if you want those windows to last, choose Marvin!
