You might not know much about Fiberglass Windows because up until about ten years ago, you would typically only hear about vinyl or wood windows. The window industry has been getting a bit more robust in the past few years - more manufacturers, better technology, and just better windows.
A lot of homeowners have been trying to save as much money as possible, but Fort Collins is becoming a bit more educated on the energy efficiency of fiberglass windows, and has begun to spend a bit more money on their windows. Let’s go through a few good things about fiberglass windows, and why you should consider fiberglass for your Fort Collins window replacement.
1. Fiberglass has the most energy efficiency compared to wood or vinyl windows. The fiberglass has a special composition that gives the window more insulation, and saves the homeowner more money on their energy bills. Also, the thermal connectivity of fiberglass is significantly less than aluminum, vinyl, plastic or wood, and as a result does not warp or leak like other window frames.
2. Versatility. Fiberglass window replacements give homeowners the ability to paint the frame of the window to match the interior and exterior of your home.
3. Flexibility in design. Vinyl or wood window frames don't give home or commercial building owners the ability to shape windows different ways and with specialty shapes. Because of the durability and the strength of fiberglass, builders are being allowed to install fiberglass windows in buildings over three stories tall, where vinyl, aluminum and wood windows would not be able to be installed.
4. Does not corrode due to weather. Any rain or extreme weather will not make fiberglass windows corrode over time.
5. Fiberglass windows are extremely light weight, which make them strong compared to other heavy windows or window frames.
6. Almost maintenance free. Most other windows will require you to give them a lot of tender loving care. This is not the case with fiberglass, as you can leave them alone for a while with no repercussions.
7. Longevity. Fiberglass windows can last more than 40 years, or twice what aluminum, wood, or vinyl windows would last.
