There are many types of windows on the market and at Progressive Insulation & Windows we believe in offering our customers as many options as possible. That said, for some homeowners, fiberglass windows are the best choice. When you work with us, we’ll be happy to go over all your options and give you the pros and cons of each. Today we’re going to go over four reasons that homeowners often choose to install fiberglass windows.

Fiberglass is an affordable option
One of the biggest advantages of fiberglass is its strength. In fact, it’s essentially as strong as steel but doesn’t have the excessive weight still has. Homeowners who want windows that are going to stand up to the test of time, and can handle any weather thrown at them, often turn to fiberglass. Be sure to ask us about the exceptional warranties offered on all of our windows.
Often times, vinyl or wood windows have thicker and bulkier frames compared to fiberglass frames. As a result, they may lead you to lose some of your view and they can slightly restrict the sunlight that’s able to get in. On the other hand, fiberglass is so strong that the frames can be much narrow while still offering all the support your windows need.
There are many preferences out there, but we’ve worked with plenty of customers who choose fiberglass in large part because they like the way it looks. They also appreciate that it’s so customizable. You can stain it, you can paint it, you can even choose to have a wood-type grain put on it. This gives owners who love the look of wood to get what they want without the issues that come along with wood, like the potential for rot and insect damage.
We’ve worked with clients who like the idea of fiberglass windows but never really considered them because they assumed they were out of their budget. The truth is that these windows are actually relatively affordable when you look at the long-term investment potential. They help increase energy efficiency, which means lower utility bills, and their strength means they’ll last for years to come. Finally, the fact that they only need the simplest maintenance means you won’t have to hire professionals, thus saving you even more money.
