The appeal of Virginia’s colonial-style homes is timeless. Unfortunately, their wood windows don’t have the same staying power. If your home was built over a decade ago, it’s not uncommon to have broken or rotting wood window frames. This is the natural result of the Southeast’s coastal climate, with its relentless heat, moisture, and humidity.
Traditional homes are popular in our area, especially in Coastal Virginia’s upscale planned communities. It’s easy to love their traditional wood-frame windows, brick or wood-siding, symmetrical design, and stately dormers. However, most people don’t love the work of maintaining, sealing and repairing their wood windows year after year.
If you’re considering a wood window replacement, we have great news! Today’s vinyl replacement windows have achieved a level of efficiency and quality to suit even the most distinctive traditional home. Our solution gives you the classic good looks of a wood window plus the energy efficiency, comfort, and convenience of the industry’s best vinyl windows.
Our wood-to-vinyl window solution restores your home’s classic beauty and gives you durability, energy-efficiency, and peace of mind. Custom Vinyl Products is the only company to offer a true architecturally-correct vinyl replacement window.
To get technical for a minute, our custom-built vinyl windows are available with a WM 180 brickmould vinyl (uPVC) trim. This is the trim grade preferred by architects and required by many homeowners associations. The result is a complete uPVC window that is seamlessly engineered to resemble a traditional wood frame window.
In short, we build a maintenance-free, high-performance replacement window to match your existing wood windows. Our process produces results that are so visually accurate many homeowners choose to replace their windows in phases -- two or three at a time.
Unlike wood, vinyl windows never need to be painted, scraped, or stained, and are easy to clean. Since they are made from polyvinyl chloride (uPVC), vinyl windows won't rust or corrode and are very durable in general.
Eliminate wood rot and prevent structural damage
Our full-frame replacement method (also known as a “total tear out” or “full frame replacement”) removes the original window down to the rough opening. This allows us to inspect for, and fix, any underlying structural damage before the new window is installed.
Durable and energy-efficient
CVP windows feature the industry’s leading Low-E, Argon-insulated glass units. Designed to reflect radiant heat and block UV rays, our double- and triple-pane window systems keep your home cooler in summer and warmer in winter. They also help reduce environmental noise. In addition, our windows all carry a DP rating of 50 or better, which means they will stand up to hurricane-force winds.
CVP vinyl windows are generally more affordable than comparable wood-frame windows. We invite you to compare and see the difference for yourself. We offer free, no-obligation estimates and upfront, everyday fair pricing. We have a reputation for providing the best value for performance in Virginia.
We are committed to helping you restore the beauty of your windows while protecting the long term value of your home. If you have rotting wood windows and moisture damage, give us a call. These conditions worsen over time and can create more expensive problems in the future.
