Why are fiberglass replacement windows better than vinyl replacement windows?
Choosing the right replacement windows for your home can be challenging. There are pros and cons to both fiberglass and vinyl replacement windows.
There are a few reasons why fiberglass replacement windows are generally considered better than vinyl windows. Here are some things to consider when making your decision. First, fiberglass is a much more durable material than vinyl, so fiberglass windows will last longer and maintain their shape and appearance better over time. Additionally, fiberglass is a much better insulator than vinyl, so fiberglass windows will help keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Fiberglass windows can be made to look like wood, which gives them a more classic appearance that many homeowners prefer. Fiberglass windows are known for their durability and energy efficiency, as they are able to withstand extreme temperatures without warping or cracking. They are also low maintenance, as they don’t require painting or staining like wood windows do. However, fiberglass windows can be more expensive than vinyl windows.
We think the more you learn about fiberglass windows vs vinyl windows, the easier your decision will become. The debate between fiberglass and vinyl windows is a long-standing one, with each type of window having its own advantages and disadvantages. When it comes to deciding which type of window is best for your home, it ultimately comes down to a matter of personal preference.
Whether you want to replace your tired old windows with a bigger size, a particular color, or you’re just after greater energy efficiency, replacing old windows can both add value and energy efficiency to your house. The replacement window market continues seeing strong demand. But before you jump in, make sure you do your homework.

Tired of the heat already? Your window plays a huge role in the volume of heat that gains entry into your home, or that is lost, at any point in time. This is why it is important that you are aware of the enormous consequences of having poor quality windows installed in your home. Not only do they serve as a major source of unwanted heat gain (in the summer months) or heat loss (in the winter months), they also require you to spend extra (unbudgeted money, sometimes) to have the Air Conditioning system running overtime, to keep your home temperature cool.
As a matter of fact, with our Infinity from Marvin Replacement window, there is technology that makes it possible for you to have super energy-efficient windows with low-E coatings, thus helping to reduce the typical solar heat gain, without compromising the design, view or the amount of daylight that comes in.
If you’re investing in replacement windows choose only the best. Certified installation of energy efficient windows that can hold up to Colorado’s crazy weather conditions. Lower energy costs, improve functionality, and add curb appeal to your home.
