Published on

Deciding to replace your windows is a task you’ll more than likely have to deal with at some point during your time as a homeowner. With all the options out there, the hunt for replacement windows can quickly become a major task filled with opinions on which option you should choose. We’re here to help make your replacement window search a little simpler by giving you the information you need.

You’ve most likely landed here because you want to know more about your fiberglass window options. Well, why don’t we take a small step back and learn what fiberglass is exactly.

Fiberglass has been around since the late 30s, and while the most common application is home insulation, fiberglass is used in a wide array of products today, including as a fix for automobile damage. Fiberglass itself is formed from thin fibers of glass that are woven together and are commonly used with different types of resin depending on their application.

Now that we know how fiberglass is made, why are fiberglass windows so appealing? For starters, fiberglass windows have more energy efficiency than aluminum windows due to their construction and ability to retain both hot and cool air. They are also subject to much less shrinkage compared to vinyl, so keep that in mind depending on the climate you experience in Hanover.
