When it comes to making the right window choice for your Seattle home, Fiberglass is by far one of the most quality materials you can select. Fiberglass windows made a splash on the window market and quickly grew to become one of the most widely purchased window materials in the country. Unfortunately, with such popularity there is bound to be some false information floating around. At Signature Windows and Door Replacement it’s important to us that you bring home windows you’ll love for years to come, which is why it’s so necessary to know you’re shopping with the right information. To help, we’ve put together a list of some common fiberglass myths to help you separate fact from fiction.
Fiberglass Windows are Far to Expensive
There is more than one factor to consider when taking into account the cost of fiberglass windows. First, fiberglass windows are one of the smartest financial investments you can make for your home. Not only does having fiberglass windows increase your home’s resale value, but they can also help you save hundreds of dollars annually on energy expenses, upkeep and maintenance. Also, the misconception that fiberglass windows are expensive most often comes from window companies that don’t specialize or typically sell fiberglass windows, which means customers have to pay extra to have the windows imported in from elsewhere.
Fiberglass Windows Don’t Last as Long as Vinyl
Another window material that’s particularly popular in the US is vinyl, thanks to it’s impressive list of benefits. Still, however impressive it may be there are a number of areas where vinyl windows fall short when compared to fiberglass. One such area is durability and lifespan, where fiberglass windows last an incredible 8x’s longer than most vinyl windows. When you consider the amount of money saved in this area alone, it’s clear which is the wiser choice.
Fiberglass Windows are High Maintenance
It’s easy to see where this misconception would stem from. Quality fiberglass windows like Infinity by Marvin hold a striking resemblance to natural, wooden windows which are known for their high maintenance and upkeep. However, while wooden windows may require the annual peeling, sanding, painting and staining, fiberglass windows only require the occasional cleaning with soap and water to continue looking brand new. This means you can get the same gorgeous look and feel as wooden windows, without all the hassle that comes with them.
