Renovation and refurbishing
Monument protection and modern window technology do not have to be incompatible
Wood or vinyl frames?
Finding the right window for buildings on the historical register can often pose a dilemma. On the one side, modern concerns such as warmth and sound insulation need to be considered, but on the other side the original appearance of the structure needs to be preserved.
Economy as the highest priority
In current times when public coffers are empty, the most important factors in choosing replacement windows are longevity and ease of maintenance. The pros and cons of wooden frames as well as of vinyl profiles need to be directly compared, the initial purchase prices and the maintenance costs of a period of years, all without losing sight of the architectural demands.
Although vinyl windows are still frowned upon by many historical protection agencies, their advantages are strong enough that more historical buildings now use vinyl window frames.
With GEALAN Style window frames, renovators and architects can preserve the historical appearance of buildings better than before, yet still enjoy the advantages of vinyl frames.
