The History of Vinyl Windows

First introduced in 1954, vinyl windows started becoming mass produced in 1959 and, as of 2017, these windows are the most popular selling windows for homes. Vinyl windows first became popular in Europe before North America caught on and realized the benefits of having these windows. After natural resources (such as aluminum, steel and wood) started to dwindle in Germany, it became an issue and a cause for new materials. Vinyl, a manmade resource, would become one of the most popular materials for windows some years later. However, some credit should go to the founder of PVC polymer, Dr. Waldo Semon of B.F. Goodrich. After all, B.F. Goodrich was the vinyl resin manufacturing company who began manufacturing this great material.

It didn’t take long for window installers and industry professionals to realize that vinyl was the material of the future. Some manufacturers, (like David Weis, who started Modern White Manufacturing) noticed a considerable difference between vinyl windows and other windows. He was quoted as saying that aluminum posed a lot of problems that vinyl had solutions for.

In a market that was saturated with wood and aluminum windows, vinyl windows have surpassed all other windows in the industry…and for good reason. Vinyl windows have tons of benefits and very little drawbacks. Some of these benefits include affordability, energy efficiency and energy reduction, which translates to low maintenance. Vinyl windows are also easy to maintain and clean, they are dent and scratch proof, and you’ll never have to worry about repainting, resealing, re-staining or even refurbishing these windows.

While there are a lot of benefits to having vinyl windows in your home one of the biggest benefits among homeowners has been thermal efficiency, also known as energy efficiency, which helps heat a space with natural lighting thus eliminating the need to adjust your thermostat constantly.
