When looking for new windows, the first thing homeowners think of is whether or not they’ll look good on their houses. And often, they overlook the role windows play in keeping their home well-lit during sunny days and in keeping out the rain and wind during stormy ones.
But taking into account windows’ durability and aesthetics is easier said than done. Luckily, you don’t have to worry about compromising either with vinyl windows.
Vinyl, a material that is also used in siding, is resistant to water, cracking and chipping. Vinyl siding is also more resistant to impact from extreme weather events like hail, making it an excellent choice for windows.
However, if you’re inclined to be more environmentally conscious, fiber cement siding might be a more appealing choice to you. Since this type of siding is made from sustainable materials, it has a lower carbon footprint and might appeal more to those trying to create a more eco-friendly home.
On the other hand, if you value durability over everything else, vinyl windows might be a more suitable option for you. But you can get more bang for your buck with Berkshire Elite vinyl windows.
Timberland Exteriors, a firm offering window installation service packages and Berkshire Elite vinyl windows as an option to its customers, lists down some of the extras you’ll get from the product.

Berkshire Elite’s Fortress Secure Locking System and LinkSync Sash-to-Sill Interlock help keep the sash in place even against strong winds while its Gradient True Sloped Sill helps keep wind-driven rain out without the need for weep holes. This allows you to have the best protection against extreme weather without compromising on the your home’s aesthetics.
Savings on Your Power Bill
