Not long ago, homeowners in New Jersey and New York metro neighborhoods had very few color options when designing replacement windows – mainly, it was just white vinyl, aluminum or wood. In the early days, many home window dealers selling non-wood options only offered lighter colors – tan, white, beige. Today Renewal by Andersen customers have more than four dozen color combinations, making it easier than ever to find interior and exterior colors that complement other elements in your home or personal decorating scheme.

Technology Delivers New Color Possibilities

A challenge for replacement window companies in the early days was finding a way to add pigment to window frames that wouldn’t weaken the structure. Dark colors absorb heat. That meant that some material, especially vinyl, faded quickly, and was susceptible to warping that led to premature window failure.

Modern composites, such as Fibrex which is made from recycled wood and vinyl, have color added during the manufacturing process. Advanced technology provides more color options, including dark green, brown, and red finishes that resist sun and heat damage. Unlike a painted surface that requires labor intensive processes to maintain, Fibrex profiles are virtually maintenance-free, and guaranteed not to fade or weaken when exposed to extreme temperatures and other weather elements.

When shopping for replacement windows ask about color integrity and performance. Color applications vary depending on the frame material – aluminum, wood, vinyl or composite. Some manufacturers apply a coating or film to the frame and harden the surface with heat treatments. Others paint their frames, or use a composite material with the pigment added as part of the extrusion process.

Technological advancements allow replacement window manufacturers to create dark-framed windows with thermally reflective properties that perform almost as well as white.

A high-quality replacement window (whether it is dark or light colored) should:

  • Resist cracking during cold weather;
  • Maintain a consistent color throughout its life-span;
  • Never peel or flake;
  • And, provide exceptional insulating properties.

Which Replacement Window Color is Best for Your Home?

Thanks to modern technology, homeowners who make wise decisions about the brand of replacement window they purchase can choose colors based on their personal preference.

Yes, light colors will always reflect heat while dark colors absorb the heat. However, that doesn’t mean you have to put up with the problems of the past.
