Wood Rhode Island window replacement choices are another favorite for those who don't mind a little maintenance. Wood is a natural insulator. It will never get hot or cold with the weather changes outdoors. You can count on wood to last for many years if it is properly maintained. The only downside of using wood, is that it does require painting or sealing on occasion to keep it looking beautiful.
Metal Rhode Island window replacement choices are not as popular because they do not provide the same insulation characteristics as the vinyl or wood choices. They are however slightly less expensive in some cases, and will last for many years. If you do decide to use metal for your Rhode Island home, be sure to insulate around the window and create the proper seal to eliminate drafts.
