In the past, windows were primarily made of steel, aluminum or
wood. Vinyl windows were introduced in Germany following
the second world war as an alternative. It wasn't until
1959 that vinyl windows were introduced as an option in the
United States by the BF Goodrich Company. Since then, they
have become the most popular choice for replacement windows for
the home. As a result, vinyl windows now come in a wide
variety of styles, shapes, and prices. They are
manufactured from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and are highly energy
efficient making them a great choice for adding value and
livability to your home. Due to their increasing
popularity, most window manufactures now offer a vinyl window
line or they may offer clad windows which is a
window with a vinyl exterior. We have provided a list of
