There are many benefits to choosing vinyl over any other material. With vinyl you save on heating and cooling costs, there is no painting or staining required, it is extremely durable and long lasting, it’s economical, easily customized and there are a wide variety of styles. Since the weather has significantly cooled down, furnaces and fireplaces have been turning up the heat and slowly draining your pocket book. Luckily, vinyl is very energy efficient and provides excellent energy savings along with a high R-value, meaning it is resistant to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater their resistance and the higher their energy efficiency will be.

In addition to being energy efficient, vinyl is easily customizable and virtually maintenance free. They can be customized and are available in many styles shapes and sizes. Vinyl rarely needs to be scraped, painted or stained and they are almost 100% scratch free. If you are looking to keep your family warm this winter without breaking the bank, consider the high energy efficiency of vinyl.
