Are you thinking about replacing your windows? Replacing your old windows with new energy efficient windows can help you save money on your energy bills. There are various different types of materials that window frames are made of from wood to aluminum to vinyl. However, fiberglass edges out the others in every way, making it the best window replacement option. Here’s why you should choose fiberglass windows.
Fiberglass windows offer a Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) that is twice as high as what is considered efficient by Energy Star standards. This means that significantly less heat is able to pass through the windows, allowing your air conditioner to more effectively cool your home with less energy. It also prevents heat from escaping during the winter months, which helps out your furnace in the same way.
Fiberglass windows are the ultimate in durability, far surpassing wood and edging out vinyl’s 30 year life expectancy with a 40 year life expectancy. The strength comes from the manufacturing process, where the fiberglass is coated, processed, and finished in a precise way that makes it solid and sturdy.
If you’re looking for an upscale appearance that will complement your home and increase your resale value, Fiberglass is the best choice. Fiberglass windows come in a wide range of colors, styles, and shapes to fit even the most unique windows. Give your home a fresh new look with versatile options available in fiberglass.
When compared to wood, fiberglass requires significantly less maintenance. Fiberglass only requires occasional washing with soap and water, which is similar to the upkeep of vinyl. You can get the same beauty and style that wood offers without the sanding, scraping, or painting (not to mention replacing rotted wood) that comes with them.
Fiberglass windows are also considered to be green, as fiberglass is recyclable and the extreme energy efficiency reduces your carbon footprint. This means that 40 or 50 years from now when your windows may need to be replaced, the materials can be recycled and your home will have used a fraction of the energy that it may have consumed with lesser windows.
You will find that fiberglass windows tend to be priced anywhere from 10% to 30% higher than vinyl windows. But the reason for that is the superior quality, life expectancy, and appearance of fiberglass windows. Here’s where the Zen Windows Twin Cities difference comes in.
