When it comes to choosing the right replacement windows for your home or business, there are a multitude of options to choose from. Typically, the most sought after windows are made from either vinyl or fiberglass, so while there may be many styles, colors and energy efficient options to choose from, your first decision should be choosing between vinyl windows and fiberglass windows. There are pros to choosing each type of window, but we’d like to break it down for you to help you make the decision process a little easier! Here is what you need to know about these windows:

Vinyl Windows

Windows made with vinyl are durable and reliable. When it comes to keeping them clean and working correctly, they also very require very little maintenance. Vinyl windows are easy to operate and are natural insulators, helping to keep your home comfortable all year round. They can be customized to fit your home perfectly in both style and design and are easy to install. Vinyl windows are also very energy efficient, keeping heated or cooled air in your home, while keeping the exterior weather out, which can help you to save money on your energy bills throughout the year. Vinyl windows are also an excellent investment; new windows can increase the value of your home and they will last you for many years to come.

Fiberglass Windows

Fiberglass windows offer the perfect combination of durability, beauty and performance for your home or your business. These windows have added strength and are designed to withstand major weather events. Fiberglass windows stand up to the sun’s damaging UV rays and during storms, they can withstand impacts and scratches. If you live near the sea, fiberglass windows are a great choice because they can withstand the salty sea air! These windows are also energy efficient, saving you money on your heating and cooling bills. Fiberglass windows require very little maintenance and some types of these windows resemble high quality painted wood windows and don’t have the shiny look of vinyl.
