Published on

Deciding to replace your windows is a home improvement you’ll more than likely have to deal with one time or another during your time as a homeowner.

You’ve most likely landed here because you want to find more information about your fiberglass window options. Well, why don’t we take a small step back and figure out what fiberglass is exactly.

Fiberglass has been used since the late 30s, and while its most frequent application is home insulation, fiberglass is used in a wide variety of products today, including as a fix for automobile damage. Fiberglass itself is composed of thin fibers of glass that are woven together and are typically used with different types of resin depending on their application.

Now that we understand what fiberglass is composed of, what makes fiberglass windows so appealing? First, fiberglass windows have higher energy efficiency than aluminum windows due to their construction and ability to retain both hot and cool air. They are also subject to considerably less shrinkage compared to vinyl, so keep that in mind depending on the climate you experience in Cape Cod.
