Can Recycled Vinyl Stand up to Florida’s Climate?
Are you ready to finally upgrade the windows on your house? We know this is an important venture that you’ve been contemplating for a while now so it is understandable if you don’t quite know what you’re looking for. Many homeowners will find themselves looking into vinyl windows because they are extremely popular, durable, and visually appealing. However, the choice isn’t quite that simple. When presented with a vinyl window you will want to find out if it is made from recycled vinyl. One of the benefits of vinyl is that it is recyclable so you can feel like you are helping the environment by installing a vinyl window on your home instead of a fiberglass or aluminum product. The only problem is that installing a window that is made from already recycled vinyl will not offer you the same durability as a pure virgin vinyl product.
For homeowners in many other areas, recycled vinyl would be fine. However, here in the Sunshine State we require a more durable window that is able to withstand all of the extreme heat and severe weather conditions that we experience during certain points of the year. That is why utilizing a uPVC window will actually be your best bet.
A uPVC window is the only vinyl window product that is able to withstand the hurricane force winds experienced in Florida. In fact, if you turn to NewSouth Window Solutions for the installation of replacement windows, you will be able to feel confident that we tested our windows at wind speeds of up to 200 mph! In case you were unaware, that is higher than the majority of most severe storms. If you want to really feel safe in your home during storm season a pure vinyl window from NewSouth Window Solutions is the right choice for you.
