You’ve most likely landed here because you want to learn more about your fiberglass window options. Before we get started, let’s take a small step back and learn 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 usually used with different types of resin depending on their application.
Now that we know how fiberglass is made, why are fiberglass windows popular? For starters, 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 this in mind based on your climate in Colorado Springs.
