Vinyl Windows Wood Interior

 
 
 

Vinyl Windows are becoming more and more popular due to the fact that they're water resistant, maintenance free and come in quite a few colors to match your theme. The only drawback is the interior part of the window ends up looking a little less inviting and you're stuck with the same color as you have on the outside. This is where the combination vinyl window, wood window really shines.

 

 
 

With a wood, vinyl combination including wood extension jambs on the inside, you'll forget that you even have vinyl on the outside. The wood will even give you a better insulating value so there's also a benefit that way.

The image to the left is an example of what can be accomplished with custom vinyl windows with wood interior and making an expance of glass is easy. The windows are allowed to extend right up to the roof joists giving an un-abstructed view which is not always accomplished with conventional installations.

 
 

The photo to the right shows the finished window installation with the tan colored vinyl on the exterior of the window nicely matching the cedar. The stacked windows in between the beams give a look of richness and a feeling that the more difficult installation was worth the effort.

Windows in all shapes and sizes are available with low-e glass being a coating on the inside of the glass helping with energy efficiency. Also available is argon gas inside the thermal pane to give the windows a better R value or resistance to heat loss. As a rule we always try to keep most of our windows on the south side of the house in colder climates and utilize overhangs to help out with solar aspects of window design.
