Few people want to spend their weekends taking care of the windows on their home. If you are in the market for replacement windows, the following can help you choose a low-maintenance style.

Generally, you will want to avoid wooden window frames completely, as these require regular sanding and repainting to ensure that wood rot doesn't set in. Vinyl windows are often sold as low maintenance, which is generally true in that they don't require painting or treating.
