New or replacement windows can often be one of the largest investments owners will make in their home. Exploring all your options is an important step to take before you break out your checkbook. One of the first decisions you will have to make is what material you want your windows made out of.
As you do some research, you may find that fiberglass windows will offer a multitude of benefits, but are more expensive than other materials, like vinyl. But, are they really worth the money? Tashman Home Center is here to help. Let’s take a look at the benefits of fiberglass windows, and what sets them apart from the rest.
The Benefits of Fiberglass Windows
While vinyl windows are generally recommended because of their low maintenance and cost, there are compelling arguments that fiberglass materials are a better choice. Here’s why:
- Fiberglass offers a lower expansion and shrinkage rate, meaning better protection against bowing and buckling caused by climate.
- Outperforms vinyl in thermal stability, offering superior energy efficiency.
- Fiberglass windows are recyclable and require far less energy than vinyl during production, making them eco-friendly.
