Zen Windows DC recommends vinyl replacement windows for our friends and neighbors in the DMV (DC, Maryland, and Virginia). Our energy-efficient windows come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. You can also choose double- or triple-pane glass insulated with argon or krypton gas.
Traditional wood windows are charming and attractive. They are also expensive, high-maintenance, and more vulnerable to deterioration. Because they expand and contract, their energy efficiency is compromised. Wood windows need to be inspected regularly and treated for insect infestations and water damage.
Fiberglass windows are a good option but they are more expensive than vinyl replacement windows. They may be “stronger” than vinyl but often they lack strength in key places. For example, they can’t be fusion-welded like vinyl windows, so they need screws. This means they are less airtight and more vulnerable to moisture. They often require painting.
