3 Reasons Black Windows Are Trending

Black windows are trending in 2020.  We understand why!  Black windows are a timeless look that creates beautiful contrast on any home and with multiple interior color options.  It’s no wonder The Window Source is seeing an increase in black window interest this year.  Here are 3 things you may find interesting about black windows.

1. Black Window Design Benefits

The black window design is classic.  Black windows have been around as long as long as white window frames.  The contrasting look dates back to the Victorian Farm House era of the late 1800’s to early 1900’s.  The black on white contrasting colors make the windows pop and give a modern, yet timeless look to any home.  When purchasing black windows from The Window Source, you will have the peace of mind knowing your windows will stand the test of time.  With our lifetime warranty, design and durability, there is one less thing to worry about.

2. Are Black Windows More Expensive?

When comparing The Window Source’s black vinyl double-hung window to our white double-hung window, you can expect to pay around $200 more per unit. Black vinyl windows are a premium product and The Window Source prides itself on offering black windows at the most competitive prices.

3. Will I Save on Energy Cost with Black Windows?
There is a common misconception about high energy cost when it comes to black windows.  Black does absorb more heat than white.  We would not recommend a black window frame on a single pane window.  But with The Window Source’s Energy Miser Package, this is not a concern.  Our premium Black 9000 Series windows with the Energy Miser Package include Argon gas filled panes with two layers on LowE coating.  This gives our windows a U-Factor rating of .22u.  Learn more about NFRC ratings.  Replacing your old single pane windows with our Black 9000 Series Windows will save you on average $400 per year on your energy costs.  When it comes to energy savings, white windows versus black windows, you will not see any difference is energy cost.
