Vinyl replacement windows are the most popular choice as they are water-proof, color-fast, and never need painting. Vinyl windows are also the least expensive. Alternatives include fiberglass, wood, vinyl-clad wood, and aluminum. In addition to cost savings, new windows are also easier to maintain.
Closing in your screened porch or deck can be an affordable way of adding space to your home, along with increasing your home's value. Depending on whether it is a three-season or four-season room, you can enjoy the outdoors free from bugs and pollen, wind, rain, and cold weather.
