Vinyl vs. Composite Windows. What’s the difference?

Composite Materials Replacement Windows And Doors Conshohocken PA

Vinyl windows have been around for a long time for the simple fact that they are a great option. The construction is strong, they can be adapted to fit virtually any opening, and come in an array of colors and styles to ensure the homeowner will find something that fits the look and feel of their home.


Composite windows are a newer option in the grand scheme of window installation. The material is made from more of an impact resistant composite making it a good option for those at the shore points and are vulnerable to coastal storms. This isn’t to say they are hurricane proof, but they do provide a bit more resistance when compared to traditional vinyl. 

Composite windows don’t have the versatility in options that vinyl windows offer. Composite windows typically give the appearance of a wood style window but without the maintenance that comes with wood. This makes composite a good option for people who have a more historic style home where vinyl options may look out of place.

Vinyl windows are also cheaper than composite windows, but by no means does that equate to  quality sacrifice. Both windows offer great energy efficiency options, durability, and maintenance. It all comes down to what works best for you and your home.
