You have a lot of choices when it comes to new construction and replacement windows and doors. Some composites are often less expensive, but it’s not always about the immediate cost.
Choosing doors and windows made of composites is a great solution for a wide range of construction applications, but not every composite window is made from the same materials, nor do they have the same properties. Take, for example, wood chip/thermoplastic composites and fiberglass composites – two very different materials which are not only created using different processes, but which also behave differently over their lifespans.
What is Thermoset Fiberglass Composite Material?
For many general contractors, it may be unclear exactly what makes thermoset fiberglass composites different from thermoplastic composites, and thus worth the additional cost. To answer that question, it’s vital to understand what these composites are and how they’re created.
Most plastics and vinyls are made using thermoplastic…
