Seattle Fiberglass Windows
Fiberglass windows consist of strands of extremely fine glass fibers made from silica sand, limestone, and soda ash. These strands are woven together, pulled through a resin bath, and then placed in a heated die to cure. Fiberglass frames have air cavities that can be filled with foam or a hollow core, providing excellent insulation, while the frame expands and contracts at the same rate as the glass window pane it holds. This minimized expansion and contraction reduces air leakage, making fiberglass the greatest window material for Seattle homeowners who value energy efficiency.

Comparing Fiberglass to Vinyl and Clad-Wood Windows
Compared to other window materials, we consider fiberglass the highest quality material available for your Seattle home. It provides optimal levels of performance and durability, along with many design options.
While fiberglass is more energy-efficient and durable than vinyl window materials, it’s also significantly more expensive. Because of this, we recommend fiberglass windows to homeowners who want the best material money can buy and vinyl windows for homeowners who desire comparable performance at a more affordable price.
When deciding between fiberglass and clad-wood windows, the decision boils down to your design preference. While fiberglass outperforms vinyl clad-wood windows, they are better suited for modern home designs, whereas clad-wood windows are an excellent choice for traditional home designs.
