Vinyl Windows & Doors

What is the Best Vinyl Window or Door?

So many choices it’s confusing!

Vinyl windows – the most common type of replacement window on the market, and quickly becoming the most common option for new home construction. Because of the relatively inexpensive barriers and costs for manufacturers to enter the vinyl window market, there are roughly 7,000 – 8,000 different brands of vinyl windows on the market today. Yep, you heard that right, 7,000 – 8,000 DIFFERENT vinyl window brands! They definitely aren’t created equally. So how do you choose which vinyl window is best?

You could read vinyl window reviews. You could check out a dozen vinyl replacement window companies and trust the salesperson is telling you the truth. Or, you could spend hours exploring vinyl windows and doors online. However narrowing the scope can sometimes confuse you even more!

Because there are so many manufacturers out there, we think quality is the number one factor to consider when choosing the best vinyl window for your home. We’re not just talking window quality – it’s also about the company that makes the window. At Weather-Tek Windows & Doors we’ve hand selected the best producers of vinyl products so we know your purchase (and our reputation) is backed by a manufacturer who offers:

  • A reputable history for quality and workmanship
  • Product track records for performance and longevity
  • Reliable service and repairs when needed
  • A warranty program that is backed by a strong reputation
  • We were impressed from start to finish with our replacement windows – from Vince helping us decide on what the best windows were for our home by providing us with several options to compare to Craig and his crew that worked at our home this week. Our new windows look great and the craftsmanship on the trim has made a huge impact on the look of our home! We look forward to working again with Weather-Tek in the future.

  • Weather-Tek made the replacement window process easy. They didn’t force us into making decisions, but rather educated us on the options and what’s important. They have an amazing showroom with all the windows on display. The installers were very experienced and had great attention to detail. We are extremely happy we chose Weather-Tek and love the look of our Marvin Integrity Windows.

    Matthew – Waukesha, WI
  • I have had the pleasure of working with Weather-Tek Windows & Doors on two occasions. When it comes to replacement windows they are unparalleled in their knowledge. We were not guided toward any one of the many brands that they have available, but educated so we could choose the best replacement window for our needs. We love the Anderson 100 series windows we put in our home. The Marvin Integrity windows were the perfect fit for our commercial property.

    Mike – Pewaukee, WI
  • “Just had my windows and doors installed last week. Very impressed by Paul and his team. It’s clear this was not their first window and door install. Our home builder really chose a team that knew what they were doing.”

    Barry – East Troy, WI
  • “The stain on my new Western interior doors and trim is beautiful workmanship. Thank you, Weather-Tek installation and delivery team!”

    Paula – Mukwonago, WI
  • “Thanks to Adam & guys for quick install … everything seemed to go smoothly & they were very courteous. I think I will be very happy with the new windows.”

    Eve – Waukesha, WI
  • “We are very pleased with the family room windows supplied and installed by Weather-Tek. The finished project exceeded our expectations…and the crew did a great job installing the windows. They are true craftsmen. The inside and outside trim work is fantastic, matching the existing trim stain. That was difficult to do.”

    Jim – Mequon, WI
  • “Wow, I was so impressed with Andersen Windows and so glad I went with the Replacement Windows & Doors team over at Weather-Tek.”

    Jeffrey – Germantown, WI
  • “It is refreshing to work with someone I feel I can trust with an excellent work ethic such as Rick. He should be commended for providing such excellent service.”

    Jen – Menomonee Falls, WI
  • “Rick by far, was the most responsive replacement window sales consultant, providing me with a quote in hours instead of days and weeks that I had to wait for with other companies. He also was proactive in following up with me to see if I had any further questions on my window order.”

    Jen – Menomonee Falls, WI
  • “I wanted to take a moment to let you know what a pleasure it is to work with Rick St. Antoine. I was in need of new windows for our home in Menomonee Falls and had contacted several window companies. Rick came to my home well prepared to show me the brand options that Weather-Tek could offer us.”

    Jen – Menomonee Falls, WI
  • “I have found the process of researching windows to be more complex than I ever bargained for. I had to consider the material, brand name, energy efficiency, Low E coating, triple vs. double pane, etc. etc.! I was referred to Weather-Tek. Rick St. Antoine met with me in my home and gave me suggestions and answered all the questions I had.”

What are Vinyl Windows & Doors?

Created in Germany following WWII, vinyl offered a low cost option for windows, doors, and other construction materials at a time when there was a shortage of wood and metal. The plastic-like product is a blend of ethylene and chlorine. It’s pushed through a form to create what is called an extruded lineal – a fancy term for a long, seamless length of product with different shapes, corners, and channels. Think licorice, pasta, gutters or drinking straws.

The extruded lineal is then cut down to the correct length – say, a 24” window opening – and the corners are “welded” together to create your window. The different shapes and grooves in the vinyl allow for glass placement, hardware, and even channels of air gaps – which believe it or not – are excellent insulators!

Installation of Vinyl Windows & Doors

The funny thing about a window or door is that it’s only as good as the installation. Even the best, most expensive wood window on the market today will perform poorly if installed wrong, making it inferior to an economical, well installed vinyl window. Workmanship is so important to us at Weather-Tek Windows & Doors that we’ve devoted an entire company division to Installation & Field Services.

Energy Efficiency at its Finest

At Weather-Tek Windows & Doors we offer one of the lowest U-Factor windows on the market according to ENERGY STAR’s Most Efficient of 2016 list. Hint…the lower the U-value, the better overall performance rating. Vinyl windows are known for their superior insulating values, helping reduce heating and cooling costs, providing you an excellent value and return on your investment.

Low Cost Meets High Value!

Why are vinyl windows less expensive? It’s not because they are an inferior product choice, it’s more about what goes into manufacturing them. A relatively simple material to make and fabricate, vinyl windows are the most common option today. Their popularity along with value-added features such as energy efficiency, weather-resistance, and low maintenance features make them a great value, whether you purchase outright or need financing options.
