You’ve most likely landed here because you want to know more about your fiberglass window options. Well, why don’t we take a small step back and figure out what fiberglass is exactly.
Fiberglass has been used since the late 30s, and while its most commonly used for home insulation, fiberglass is used in a vast array of products today, including as a fix for automobile damage. Fiberglass itself is composed of thin fibers of glass that are woven together and are typically used with certain types of resin depending on their application.
Now that we have a little more understanding of what fiberglass is composed of, what makes fiberglass windows so appealing? To begin wiith, fiberglass windows have more energy efficiency than aluminum windows due to their
construction and ability to retain both hot and cool air. They are also subject to less shrinkage compared to vinyl, so remember to consider this if it’s pertinent for your climate in Syracuse.
