Buying vinyl replacement windows, is an important decision and bears looking into all the pros and cons associated with your new windows. Quality vinyl windows vs. inferior ones can affect the value, safety and comfort of your home for many years. Vinyl windows have only been around for about 20 years. How long will they survive? No one really knows, but studies have proven that many of the vinyl windows installed in the early 1980's are failing. In 1996 there were fewer than ten major window manufacturers in the U.S., but there were more than 3,000 different companies manufacturing windows. Roughly half of the replacement windows sold in the United States are vinyl. Some come with a 10, 20 or 30 year warranty, and even a lifetime or double lifetime warranty. Sometimes that warranty is not transferable to a new property owner, and with others it is. Some even go so far as to cover broken glass. The biggest concern you should have when replacing with vinyl windows should not be the cost, but the warranty, stability and strength of the manufacturer that you choose.  With so many in-house and small manufacturers, will they still be around when you need to use your warranty?
