You’ve most likely landed here because you want to know more about your fiberglass window options. First we’ll take a small step back and figure out what fiberglass is exactly.
Fiberglass was invented in the late 30s, and while its most commonly used for home insulation, fiberglass is used in a large selection 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 commonly used with various types of resin depending on their application.
Now that we understand what fiberglass is composed of, why are fiberglass windows popular? For starters, 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 considerably less shrinkage compared to vinyl, so keep this in mind based on your climate in Woburn.
