Replacing the windows in your home is one the smartest and most cost effective remodels you can invest in. It is a shrewd remodel because it upgrades the inside and outside of your home at once-- you get two remodels for the price of one! There are many different great materials for window frames like vinyl, wood, aluminum and other composite materials. But, this article will focus on why fiberglass windows are ideal for homeowners who want a durable, user-friendly product.
Fiberglass is Durable
The great thing about fiberglass is that it is so strong. It will remain a durable frame material without any special treatment or painting. Fiberglass is hard, yet lightweight at the same time. Hollow fiberglass frames are even lighter than aluminum and vinyl frames. This makes it particularly ideal for movable and sliding windows. Over the years, there is a good chance that you will never need to make any structural repairs to your fiberglass frames. If you do need to make repairs, fiberglass patch kits are common and easy to use.
Fiberglass Does Not Need Painting
Another great thing about fiberglass is that you never need to paint it. It is usually painted with a powder coating technique during the initial construction. This creates an extra layer of protection on your frames that protects against scratching. Also, since fiberglass has a smooth finish, it is perfect for sliding windows. It never needs to be lubricated to keep the windows working smoothly.
Fiberglass is Waterproof
Because of the strong powder coat finish, fiberglass is perfectly waterproof. It does not need to be sealed or waterproofed. So, fiberglass is perfect for even the wettest environments. Also, you can easily clean your fiberglass with all purpose liquid cleaners without the risk of damaging the frames.
Fiberglass is Stylish
Fiberglass windows are usually just white with a flat finish. In fact, almost all residential windows are just white. However, you can find fiberglass in a wide range of colors and textures. By choosing colored frames, you can coordinate with other colors in your home (inside and outside). It is a great material if you are thinking about installing more colorful frames.
When it comes to durability, style and practicality, it is easy to see why fiberglass is such a popular. It is a great remodel for homeowners looking to increase the value of their property without investing in the most expensive product on the market.
