What Is The Difference Between Vinyl And Fiberglass Windows?

Publication date:
February 7, 2022
Article Summary: 

Vinyl and fiberglass windows are synthetic materials that can be used for window frames. Fiberglass is made out of fiber-reinforced plastic and offers more benefits than other materials. It is strong, rigid, lightweight, corrosion-resistant, and offers better insulation than wood or aluminum. Fiberglass windows are also easy to maintain, open and close, and are resistant to mold and mildew. Vinyl windows, on the other hand, are made of a rigid plastic called vinyl and can come in various colors and styles. They are durable, require little upkeep, reduce energy bills and noise, and are recyclable. Vinyl windows are cheaper and more energy efficient than fiberglass. The key differences between the two are the style, materials, production, exposure, efficiency, and warranty. Vinyl windows are ideal for large panes of glass and colder climates, while fiberglass offers superior stability and is ideal for warm climates. Fiberglass comes with better warranties than vinyl products, but the difference is not significant.
