Congrats! You’ve decided to have new fiberglass windows installed in your Bellevue home. Fiberglass windows are an excellent addition for any style of home and can easily enhance the overall comfort, energy efficiency and security of your household. That said, it’s important to remember that not all fiberglass windows are created equal. At Signature Windows, it’s important to us that if you choose fiberglass windows, you’ll love for years to come. So to help, we’ve put together a short list of signs that you’ve chosen high quality fiberglass windows for your home.
Every Detail Has Been Considered
One of the most notorious benefits of fiberglass windows is their striking resemblance to traditional wood windows. In fact, some high quality fiberglass window models are virtually indistinguishable from the wood windows they are imitating. So what makes a high quality fiberglass window differ from an ordinary fiberglass window when it comes to aesthetics? It’s all in the details. High quality window manufacturers have taken every detail of wood windows into account and have added similarities like grain directions, species tones, and even natural knots to their fiberglass window models. If your fiberglass windows have all the right details, you may have chosen a high quality model.
They Are Double or Triple Pane
One detail that often goes overlooked when it comes to windows is the thickness of the glass. While this may seem like an insignificant factor, the density of the glass actually plays a major role in insulation, noise control, and even reducing the chance of a break-in occurring. For this reason, high quality fiberglass window models come standard with double or triple pane glass. Unfortunately, there are also fiberglass windows that tend to skip on the cost of manufacturing by using cheap, single-pane glass that actually leads to a number of problems. So check your glass density before deciding if the model is the right choice for your home.
They Hold a Strong U-Factor
Two fiberglass windows can be virtually indistinguishable to the naked eye while holding different capabilities. So how can you tell which will give you the greatest value for your money? When comparing any type of windows, we suggest referring to the label where you’ll find a variety of information, including the window’s u-factor. A U-factor is similar to the miles per gallon on a car and is designed to tell you how well the fiberglass window will insulate your home. The lower the number, the better the window will insulate your home.
