2. What is the difference between vinyl and aluminum windows?
Huge! Aluminum conducts heat 2000 times more than vinyl. For example as the sun shines on one side of your home, if you feel the inside of the window it will be hot; with vinyl it will be closer to the inside temperature of your home. This translates into energy savings.
3. Why replace your old windows? Window replacement is a smart home-improvement idea, especially if you select well-made high-performance replacement windows. They will save you money because your home heating and cooling bills will be lower—and your home will be a lot more comfortable to live in. New windows will increase your home's value and provide numerous other benefits like enhanced levels of safety and security, greater beauty, less need for maintenance and the joy of fingertip operation.
4. WHY NOT BUY CHEAPER STOCK WINDOWS? "Stock" windows and doors made to standard sizes typically cost less in the beginning. However, other expenses and factors—like additional labor costs, lost energy savings and the disruption to your home—far outweigh the possible savings. For example, installing standard-size windows may require additional brick or siding to the exterior—and drywall or other materials to the interior—all of which can give your home a "patched-up" appearance.
Custom-manufactured windows and doors fit your home perfectly, making your home more energy efficient and helping to curb fuel bills. They also allow you to "custom design" your windows and doors because of all the options available to you that affect appearance, performance and functionality.

Savings will vary, but expertly engineered and well-built windows lower home energy consumption. With vinyl-framed windows, maintenance is also virtually eliminated. No need to scrape and paint windows.
These energy and maintenance savings will allow you to recoup your window investment over time.

6. How are replacement windows any different from older windows in terms of cleaning? Many high-quality windows are actually engineered to make cleaning easier. For example, double-hung windows with the latest internal constant force balance system allow a home owner to easily maneuver the sashes up and down. They tilt in—and lock securely in place—for safe, easy cleaning. Quite a difference from old wood windows that stick and are difficult to move up and down.
7. Will new windows eliminate condensation? Actually, no. Condensation is moisture vapor suspended in the air, and that's something no one can guarantee to eliminate. However, high-quality vinyl windows incorporating warm-edge technology glazing systems will help to reduce condensation because they're much less thermally conductive than other window types. They can help keep the temperature of the window warmer—minimizing the hot and cold differences that turn moisture into condensation.
