How Long Do Vinyl Windows Last?

Among today’s leading window options, vinyl windows are incredibly popular. C&T Siding offers a high-end collection of today’s leading vinyl window options, and we’re here to show you the basics of long-lasting, energy efficient window installations. Vinyl may be elegant, but it’s also durable. Our custom-made Pinnacle Window line is particularly strong, and our state-of-the-art windows are capable of withstanding decades of use.

Average Vinyl Window Life Expectancy

Your vinyl windows can be expected to last between 20 and 40 years, depending on their upkeep. If your vinyl windows are exposed to sunlight frequently, however, they may need additional maintenance. Heat increases window deterioration. So, if your home isn’t covered by tree shade, your windows may last a few years less.

Water damage, too, plays a role. Over time, the microorganisms in rainwater can collect behind installed vinyl windows. Homeowners are urged to be careful if their windows and siding are exposed to water frequently.

Your Vinyl Window Warranty

Your vinyl windows from C&T Siding are installed with a lifetime, transferable, non-prorated warranty. Because our windows are both Energy Star approved and contoured to deflect water, mold, and dirt, they tend to last longer than leading alternatives.

C&T Siding vinyl windows also feature a block-and-tackle balance system—which assures smooth, accessible use. Other windows, meanwhile, often wear down over time due to day-to-day wear-and-tear. While maintenance and proper upkeep are still suggested, the design of your C&T Siding windows will make them last longer than other options.

Getting Annual Check-Ups and Maintenance

As stated above, you should make sure your vinyl windows are maintained properly. Our vinyl window line has many available accessories capable of enhancing the lifespan of installed models. Between airspace colonial grids and extension jambs, our accessory lineup is guaranteed to pair practicality with pleasure.
