You’ve most likely landed here because you want to learn more about your fiberglass window options. First we’ll take a small step back and learn 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 wide 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 different 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 much less shrinkage compared to vinyl, so keep this in mind based on your climate in Kansas City.
