Vinyl windows are one of the most common and popular choices among those who are having windows replaced in the home or who are having new windows installed in a newly constructed home. They provide many benefits for your family, including insulated benefits, low maintenance and a wide variety of colors that may be available to suit any needs. Although most people will not really consider the specifics of the vinyl window that they are having installed, there are many reasons to do so. One of the options that are available for your consideration is found in the corners of the frame, as they may be constructed in different ways.
In a lower quality window that may be less expensive, you will have a mechanically fastened option. If you were to look at the frame from the side, you would notice that the edges came together and were fastened with screws. Although this is a common option, it is inferior to the fusion welded vinyl windows that we recommend to our customers. These are held together in the corners with a heated plate so that they are permanently bonded in place. This provides a very high quality option which you will be able to use to the advantage of your home.
One of the reasons why fusion welded vinyl windows are superior is because there are no gaps that exist in the corners. With a mechanically fastened window, it is possible for gaps and spaces to appear in the corners and this can cause significant problems that may take some time to visibly appear. Because of the gaps and spaces that may exist in a mechanically fasten window, water may be able to get into the area and this could cause damage to the interior walls of the home. In addition, the water damage could lead to the growth of mold, which has been known to cause health problems in households that are affected by it.
An additional reason why you would want to choose fusion welded vinyl windows is because of the structural integrity that they provide. They are stronger than mechanically fastened windows and they are going to be permanently held in place in the corners, so that you will not need to worry about the gaps and spaces that were spoken of above. In addition, mechanically fastened windows typically carry a substandard warranty, because the manufacturer recognizes that they have a short lifespan until those difficulties begin to appear.
