One of the nicest features about vinyl windows is that they require little maintenance. Unlike wood, there is no chance for warping or for pest infestation such as carpenter ants or termites.

One will occasionally want to consider washing the vinyl, but this is not a difficult job and is far less costly or time-consuming than painting and keeping a check for wood rot and pests could ever be. Nowadays, most vinyl windows tilt in and with a simple flip of a lever or push of a button one can have access to the exterior of any window and with a quick wipe the window is clean and looks as good as new.
