Vinyl and wood windows are popular choices for homes. However, due to their susceptibility to warping, they might not be the best option for you, especially if you are looking for cost-effective and low-maintenance windows.
Why Do Vinyl and Wood Windows Warp?
Warping is basically distortions that appear on windows due to moisture problems. Wood, for instance, is known for its ability to absorb and retain moisture, which can eventually lead to rotting and warping. Meanwhile, vinyl becomes susceptible to warping when it is exposed to excessive heat or installed incorrectly.
The distortions can take various forms, which can give you an idea about the origin of the problem. That said, if you notice bends or bows on any areas of your windows, call a window contractor to carry out an inspection.
