So you need new windows? You’ve come to the right place. Are you having a hard time deciding whether to replace windows or install new ones? It can be a tricky decision. However, it’s a good decision, because there are quite a few window manufacturers and various types of windows with different features to fit your needs.

If you’re curious what the difference between new and replacement windows is, don’t worry, we’ll outline those differences here. To put it simply, replacement windows are made to fit in existing window frames. New windows are installed where there is no window at all. Both options come in a variety of materials, such as aluminum, vinyl, wood, fiberglass, and mix and match.

Are you beginning to get a better idea where you stand with your windows purchase? Good! If not, here’s a little more information: if your existing window frame is strong, or has damage, it can most likely be repaired with replacement windows. If the damage is severe, then new windows should be purchased.

Now that we have that covered, you can decide which kind of material you’d like to use. Wood is the classic choice, but sometimes it requires more maintenance when it comes to painting. Glass material is becoming more popular. It varies from multiple coatings to a single thick glass, depending on what you like. Glass is meant to be modern, sleek, and contemporary. Glass material is easy to maintain, however, they are more expensive than wood and vinyl, and they are prone to breakage in comparison to other window materials.The majority of people choose vinyl and aluminum, due to the fact that they are easy to maintain. They are a reasonable price, require minimal upkeep, and last for a decent amount of time. They are also available as ready units so they are able to be installed almost immediately (if not on the spot!)  At CRS Exteriors, we offer the highest quality fiberglass windows through Infinity by Marvin Windows and Doors and vinyl windows through Vista.
