If you’ve been shopping for new windows for your Sacramento home, you’ve likely heard about fiberglass composite windows and their many benefits. This window material has quickly grown to be one of the most widely purchased window materials in the country and has earned a reputation for energy efficiency, style, and durability. Unfortunately, not all fiberglass composite windows are created equal and if you’re following the wrong advice, you may find yourself bringing home less than quality windows. At Hall’s Window Center, it’s important to us that you love your fiberglass windows for years to come, which is why we’ve taken the time to highlight some common fiberglass composite window myths to help you separate fact from fiction.
Myth #1: The More Expensive the Fiberglass Window, the Better the Window
It’s easy to see where this myth started. After all, while shopping for a car or a nice piece of jewelry, you’ll typically find that a higher price is a strong indicator of a better value. However, when it comes to fiberglass windows, this isn’t always the case. There are a number of reasons that fiberglass windows may hold a high price tag, including aesthetic appeal or falling in line with a current industry trend. One of the main reasons why a fiberglass window may be expensive is that the homeowner is shopping with a company that doesn’t typically sell fiberglass windows, meaning the customer has to pay for them to be imported. By shopping with a company that frequently deals with fiberglass windows, you can avoid the extra cost.
Myth #2: Fiberglass Windows Don’t Look Exactly Like Wood Windows
This is one myth that varies depending on the type of window you’re looking at. While all fiberglass windows do their best to imitate wood windows, low quality fiberglass windows usually aren’t up for the task. However, some fiberglass window models, like Infinity by Marvin, have been tested on the public and found to be virtually indistinguishable from wood windows.
Myth #3: Fiberglass Windows Aren’t So Energy Efficient
Again, it’s important to look at the quality of the window you’re dealing with. As a whole, fiberglass windows are the most energy efficient material on the market, but you’ll want to bring home the right model to get the most out of your purchase. For example, homeowners with Infinity by Marvin windows can expect to save anywhere from 35% – 80% on their monthly energy bills, depending on the climate.
