Which Style of Vinyl Windows Are Right for You?
Vinyl windows are not a one-size-fits all product. Each Energy Shield Window & Door product has a strategic design in mind and it’s important to discuss which vinyl replacement windows or new home products best serve your goals. Consider these options.
Single Hung Vinyl Windows: Our 7000 Series opens from the bottom only and provides a half screen on the lower portion. This allows a natural breeze to flow without compromising your eye-level view.
Double Hung Vinyl Windows: Our 8000 Series Double Hung Vinyl Windows feature top AND bottom opening access and full screens. The windows also feature the benefits of tilt-cleaning.
Single Sliding Vinyl Windows: This 7000 Series vinyl window has side-by-side windows, and one panel stays stationary and the other panel slides horizontally open.
Double Sliding Vinyl Windows: This 8000 Series product utilizes 2 side-by-side windows that open via a center slide that allows you to manage fresh air flows and view flexibility.
Casement and Awning Vinyl Windows: These 9500 Series windows enjoy hinged sashes that use a handle crank to open the window outward. Casement windows typically open from the side and awning windows open up from the bottom to create ventilation.
Bay Vinyl Window: Bay windows are sometimes referred to as bench seat windows. They typically consist of 3 windows; 1 fixed window in the center, and 2 side windows that are single or double-hung. Bay windows are great for expanding your living space, letting in fresh air, and allowing plenty of natural lighting.

How to Replace Vinyl Windows
To replace your windows with new energy-efficient vinyl windows, first contact Energy Shield to schedule your free in-home estimate. Our vinyl replacement windows expert will come to take measurements and discuss your options with you and schedule an installation date. Then, within just a few weeks, your new windows will be ready for installation. Although there are, of course, numerous steps involved in replacing windows in your home or business, our installation specialists use a very straightforward and transparent approach. So, you will know what to expect throughout the process. Here’s all you will need to do for your part of the vinyl window replacement process:
- Move window coverings, furniture, wall decor, and rugs near the windows, to make room for the window installers to work using the necessary equipment.
- Outside, move patio and deck furniture, toys, planter pots, and other items away from the windows that are going to be replaced.
- Trim back vines, hedges, and other plants temporarily, or remove them from the window areas, in order to allow access by the window installers. Turn off timers that control sprinklers near windows and other areas where installers will be working or carrying windows and tools.
IMPORTANT: For safety, children should be kept away from the areas where windows are being installed. Also, pets should be secured safely in a contained area away from where the window replacement work is being done, to protect them and help them stay calm.
Steps of the Window Replacement Process
Our window installation professionals are very respectful of your home and possessions, and we will take all the appropriate precautions to make sure that nothing is damaged in any way during window installations. So, the first thing we will do is protect your floors and larger furniture items by laying down drop cloths. Here’s the rest of the process for replacing vinyl windows:
- Each old window and its framing materials will be removed.
- Then, the installer will replace the existing framing, shims, and sealants, as needed.
- Next, the installer will place the new vinyl window into the open frame.
- Then the installer will level the new window and ensure that it is square in the opening.
- Flashing nails will be used to secure the new window into place.
- Waterproof lining will be applied around all your new vinyl replacement windows.
- Next, additional insulation will be placed around the window.
- Then, caulking will be added around the window.
Your installer will ensure that every replacement window is fully sealed and seated properly. The installation crew will clean up all areas where work was done, and they will remove all the old windows from your property. The time frame for the entire vinyl window installation project is dependent on the number of windows to be replaced. Typically, windows can be expected to take several hours each to complete, on average. This time estimate includes removing the old window, handling the materials, and completing the installation of the new window.
