There has never been a better time to shop for new windows in Sacramento. The window market is currently filled with options that allow homeowners to find the perfect windows for their home. While it’s nice to have a variety of options, homeowners often find themselves overwhelmed with the number of choices. Typically, the choices will narrow down to two window options that are both highly popular: fiberglass composite windows and vinyl windows. While both have their pluses and minuses, at Hall’s Window Center, we believe fiberglass composite windows are a clear choice over vinyl windows. Here’s why:
While you want your windows to perform, one of the most important things to homeowners is how their windows will look. In this area, fiberglass composite windows take an obvious lead. Fiberglass composite windows are hard to tell apart from wood windows, thanks to the fine details like knots and imperfections added by manufacturers to recreate that naturally warm look and feel. Like wood windows, they also come in a variety of species and “tones” to choose from, making them a perfect match for any style of home. Vinyl windows, on the other hand, have not earned the same reputation for their looks. Up until recently, it was even difficult to find the window material in any color other than basic white.
Both vinyl and fiberglass composite options have earned a strong reputation for their many energy efficient features. However, some of these features could turn into a major problem in the long run. For example, vinyl windows have the ability to expand in order to increase insulation. Unfortunately, this material expands at a rate four times greater than it’s glass, applying added pressure to the frame and causing gaps and drafts to form. While fiberglass composite windows do the same thing, they do so at a rate equal to their glass to avoid any future problems.
Durability and Lifespan
When you purchase a new window, you want it to last as long as possible. The shorter the lifespan of your windows, the more you’ll have to spend on purchasing and installing replacement windows. Fortunately, fiberglass composite windows hold the longest lifespan on the market, lasting up to eight times longer than some of the leading vinyl window brands. That means greater quality and less spending on future window replacement projects.
