With all the options available, the process of finding replacement windows can quickly become an intimidating task filled with opinions on which option is best for you. Right now, we want to help make your replacement window search a little simpler by giving you the information you need.

You’ve most likely landed here because you want to know more about your fiberglass window options. First we’ll take a small step back and figure out what fiberglass is exactly.

Fiberglass has been around since the late 30s, and while the most common application is home insulation, fiberglass is used in a wide array of products today, including as a fix for automobile damage. Fiberglass itself is formed from thin fibers of glass that are woven together and are usually used with various types of resin depending on their application.

Now that we understand what fiberglass is composed of, why are fiberglass windows popular? First, fiberglass windows have better energy efficiency than aluminum windows due to their construction and ability to retain both hot and cool air. They are also subject to much less shrinkage compared to vinyl, so keep this in mind based on your climate in Salt Lake City.
