Exterior window colours, there is a difference!

Exterior window colours, there is a difference!
When it comes to selecting the perfect exterior colour vinyl windows, it's important to understand that not all window manufacturers follow the same process. While some may offer a wide range of colours to choose from, you might have to compromise on durability. This trade-off is worth considering before making your purchase.

Vinyl windows are more than just a stylish addition to your home - they're also durable and long-lasting. But when it comes to adding colour to your windows, you want to make the right choice. While vinyl paint offers more colours to choose from, vinyl laminate is the superior option for longevity and durability. That's why understanding the difference is crucial when it comes to making the best decision for your home.

The North Star colour difference

Thankfully, with North Star's AAMA-certified 1000 series, you don't have to choose between style and durability. Unlike other manufacturers, North Star uses a sophisticated lamination application process to add colour to their windows. Their UV-resistant vinyl overlay has an embossed wood grain texture and won't chip or peel like paint. And with a 20-year warranty, North Star is confident in the quality of its exterior window colour lamination process.

Window exteriors are available in 9 exterior laminated colours:

  1. White
  2. Anthracite Grey
  3. Espresso
  4. Sable
  5. Cocoa
  6. Hickory
  7. Sandalwood
  8. Ivory
  9. Midnight Black

For an interior window option that provides the warmth and elegance of wood finishes without maintenance, North Star's acrylic overlay is the answer. Choose from oak or walnut finishes that are virtually indistinguishable from real wood. And if you want to match pre-existing wood stains or paint colours, North Star's stain-able/paint-able overlay with its wood grain texture can help you achieve your desired look.

But the beauty doesn't stop there. North Star offers a screen design that can also be laminated with the same window laminating material, allowing it to be colour matched to the interior window frame. With 8 interior laminated colours to choose from, you're sure to find the perfect match for your home.

Window interiors are available in 8 colours:

  1. White
  2. Paintable-Stainable
  3. Light Oak
  4. Kolonial Oak
  5. Walnut
  6. Hickory
  7. Midnight Black
  8. Expresso

So don't settle for less when it comes to your home's windows. Choose North Star and enjoy the best of both worlds - beauty and durability that will last for years to come.
