Here’s a more in-depth look at the benefits you’ll receive when you choose to install Marvin fiberglass replacement windows in your home.
What Is Fiberglass, and Why Is It a Great Window Material?
Made of resin and liquified glass fiber, fiberglass is a super-strong, durable, lightweight material that is great for use in home windows. Designed to address the limitations of vinyl windows, fiberglass windows last longer than vinyl and wood while creating a striking look for your home. They are an ever-popular choice among today’s homeowners.
The Benefits of Fiberglass Windows
Homeowners appreciate fiberglass windows because they offer so many advantages:
Fiberglass replacement windows are known for their durability. Fiberglass:
- Lasts as much as 38% longer than vinyl
- Endures weather elements better than wood
- Doesn’t rot or warp
- Resists insects, woodpeckers, and other pests
- Less susceptible to seal failure, because the fiberglass frame and glass panes expand and contract evenly. Other frame materials don’t do this, so seal failure is more likely with vinyl and wood.
Fiberglass windows are simple to care for. Since they last and last, they don’t need repair or replacement as often as other windows. In addition, they:
- Stand up against the effects of wear and tear
- Don’t easily fade—color finishes stay in shape and don’t need repainting
- Resist mold and mildew
- Are easily cleaned with soap and water, followed by a gentle rinse from a garden hose
Fiberglass windows perform very well at insulating your home:
- Prevent drafts with their tight, lasting seals
- Slow the transmission of thermal energy, keeping utility costs lower
- Reduce noise intrusion, giving you a quieter, more restful home environment
If you want a green choice for your home, fiberglass windows are environmentally friendly:
- Made partly from recycled glass
- Require less energy during manufacturing than other materials
- Doesn’t need replacement as often as other windows
One of the most important aspects of any window replacement is how it makes your home look and feel. Fiberglass windows are a lovely choice because they are versatile:
- Many good-looking styles and designs to choose from
- Sleek frames give your windows greater glass space, bringing in more light
- Textured to resemble the attractive appearance of natural wood
- Come in your choice of baked-in colors and finishes, or primed for painting after installation
Great Return on Investment
Many homeowners rightly consider cost of materials and installation as part of their decision on their window replacement. Fiberglass windows add value because home buyers:
- Prefer their long-lasting nature
- Appreciate their modern, sleek feel
If you install fiberglass replacement windows, you can feel comfortable accounting for them in your asking price.
