Fiberglass replacement windows are one of the newest varieties on the market. Because they are a relatively new product, the choices of styles, sizes, and colors aren’t as extensive as other varieties, but their overall quality and durability exceeds clad wood, vinyl, aluminum, and solid wood replacement windows. They are also the superior choice when considering very large windows since they are capable of supporting larger panes of glass. Additionally, Fiberglas can be painted, and it won’t warp, crack, peel, or split. It’s clearly one of the best options if you’re willing to pay upwards of double the cost of ordinary vinyl windows.
