Fiberglass window installation could be the next big exterior improvement task that helps you save energy and beautify your home. We highly recommend it for a variety of reasons, which we aim to explain in this article.

The Most Important Reasons to Consider Fiberglass Window Installation

While any kind of window replacement is an upgrade over an old or worn-out window, we find extra value in pursuing the fiberglass options. Here’s why:

  • They can last more than 50 years.
  • Design choices are much more lucrative than vinyl. They tend to look much more spectacular.
  • They are strong, durable, and energy efficient. You won’t have to worry about them allowing a huge draft any longer.
  • Since they’re made from heavy-duty synthetic material, there’s way less chance of warping, cracking, bending, or expanding.
  • Wood rot is a non-issue for fiberglass.
  • They’re fire-resistant and generally handle the summer heat better, too.
  • This material is anti-magnetic and a good electrical insulator.
  • It’s one of the best ways to improve curb appeal.
  • The frames are thinner and not nearly as bulky as wood or vinyl.
  • They’re the best option for minimizing outdoor noise and distractions.

Other Fiberglass Window Benefits

Not only is fiberglass roughly eight times stronger than vinyl, but it’s a better aesthetic investment, too. While it costs more to purchase and install when you attempt to sell a much more modern home. Plus, the cost differential between fiberglass and vinyl might only be about 10 to 25%.

Don’t forget that this is also an opportunity to further safeguard your property. How do burglars often sneak into a home? They take advantage of old/compromised windows. Fiberglass is your best bet for a tighter seal and more security.

When Ben Juncker was sitting in his high school career planning class, siding installer was not on his list of potential career paths. As with most people in the construction industry, certain questionable life choices led to a point where they were wearing a tool belt, working with their hands. His path started just this way and he would not change a thing. Those early years in his business of scraping and clawing their way to profitability and stability, have helped him to build a culture of hard work and perseverance at Craftsman’s Choice. Ben started his company in 1998 and they installed their first James Hardie job in 2000. Since that time Craftsman’s Choice has become one of the nation’s top James Hardie Remodelers. They have won James Hardie’s prestigious President’s Club award every year since it’s inception in 2015.
