When something “takes the cake,” it simply means that it wins. If you ran a race and you took the cake, it means you came in first. You were victorious over the others running the race with you. It is a strange expression because generally, people share cake with others. Nonetheless, it’s something people say! So when it comes to the window world, what material “takes the cake?” That’s simple to answer! Vinyl! Though there are a lot of materials that work well on homes in Riverside, CA, vinyl windows are at the top of the list every time. While windows don’t eat cake, vinyl windows are definitely in first place over the others and here’s why.
They’re Low Maintenance
Many homeowners like vinyl windows because of their low maintenance requirements. If you like having home improvement projects on your house, then by all means get wood windows! They’re great insulators and are truly beautiful. However, if you prefer to keep your home maintenance list on the short side, add vinyl windows to your home instead. Vinyl windows are self-sufficient and you don’t have to do anything to them to maintain their appearance and their energy efficiency.
They’re Energy Efficient
Many new windows are going to be energy efficient, but none are more so than vinyl. The PVC material in vinyl windows allows the frames to expand and contract along with the heat, so they always fit snuggly inside your home. While wood is energy efficient as well, it only remains so if you maintain it as it requires. Vinyl, on the other hand, will remain energy efficient no matter what. You will see your bills drop immediately after installation and they should remain low as well!
Probably the biggest reason why homeowners started choosing vinyl over other materials (and continue to choose it today) is because it is inexpensive. When vinyl was first introduced in the 1970s, it was an inexpensive alternative to other window materials. Today, it is still the cheapest option on the market, but the windows themselves are in no way “cheap.” In fact, they’re higher in quality than other materials so homeowners get a great deal. They can buy the lowest costing windows and still get the highest benefits! That doesn’t happen in many other areas!
