Window Materials

Extremely energy efficient, vinyl windows are some of the best replacement windows you can get and they have gained a lot of popularity in the home window market. In addition to their energy efficiency, vinyl windows:

  • Are low-maintenance
  • Have some waterproofing qualities (they’re resistant to excessive condensation)
  • Can reduce outside noises
  • Are effective at reducing air infiltration
  • Can add value to your home
  • Add unique beauty and architecture to any style of home

Wood windows, though not as durable as vinyl windows, can be considered some of the best replacement windows available. They are a great way to add curb appeal and market value to your home. Wood windows are also:

  • Energy efficient
  • Sturdy and strong
  • Durable
  • Versatile (available in cedar, pine, fir and more, wood windows offer wide aesthetic variety)

In fact, wood windows have been around for centuries – wood is the one window material that has truly passed the test of time!

Shanco offers both vinyl and wood windows for your new installation and replacement projects.

Window Styles

If you’re unsure which type of windows you want, that’s ok – our window contractors can help you determine the best products for you. We offer a wide selection:

Double hung: featuring upper and lower sashes that slide up and down, double hung windows allow for easy cleaning and maintenance. They also provide superior ventilation.

Tilt: tilt windows can swing in like a door or tilt inwards and are great for letting in a nice breeze. Like double hung windows, due to their design, they are extremely easy to clean.

Slider: slider windows, which typically slide open horizontally and provide superior ventilation, have one stationary sash and one that glides to the right or left.

Casement: single sash windows that are hinged on one side, casement windows are a popular choice for many homes. They are energy efficient due to the tight seal created between the sash and the frame.

Picture: picture windows (also referred to as fixed pane windows) don’t open at all and are therefore extremely energy efficient – no air can leak in or escape out!

Bay: you’ve probably seen bay windows before. They are typically picture windows projecting outward from your home’s exterior and flanked by two or more smaller windows.

Bow: bow windows are essentially curved bay windows and offer the same benefits such as energy efficiency and unique architecture. In fact, bay and bow windows are sometimes used solely for aesthetic purposes!

Geometric: have you ever seen a pentagon or octagon shaped window? Uniquely shaped windows like these are referred to as geometric windows.

Window Brands

Although we most often recommend Sunrise vinyl windows, our window contractors can install nearly any brand of window on the market. If it’s available in the area, we can get it and install it for you! Simply put, we have all your window needs covered!
