Windows are an essential part of every lively and functional room. Whether their main purpose is to allow natural light, ventilation, or a great view, having a both functional and aesthetically pleasing one is an absolute must.

Windows| Different types of frames

The type of frame has a huge role in terms of usage and should be carefully weighed pros and cons of. Generally speaking, there are three different types of frames. Firstly we have wooden frames, an all-time classic in American homes that add a beautiful architectural detail and finish to the exterior, allow a big variety of color or paint finishes, and are natural thermal insulators. However, it is worth mentioning that maintaining wooden frames to preserve their appearance can be costly. The second classification of is synthetic materials, most commonly fiberglass and vinyl. Both offer notable cost effectiveness and are very easy to maintain, with impressive thermal performance. However, synthetic materials can get damaged more easily and it is difficult to update colors and finishes without replacement. In terms of robustness fiberglass is usually a better option than vinyl and similar types of  frames. The last category of frames is metals and alloys. While metallic types can often be an investment, they are generally very strong and durable. Aluminum window frames in particular are also low maintenance. Color options are very restricted for those looking for an appearance beyond monochromatic metallics, but the industrial appearance of metal frame can either be very hip and appealing or dull and unappealing, depending on the interior and exterior of your Minneapolis St Paul home.
