Why Fiberglass Windows Are Gaining In Popularity

A room full of fiberglass windows.

There was a time very recently when fiberglass windows were considered a niche in the U.S. windows market, but that perception is rapidly changing.

The most recent marketing report released by the American Architectural Manufacturers Association and the Window and Door Manufacturers Association found that fiberglass windows account for a 3.2% share of the windows market and a 2.6% share of the remodeling/replacement market. The major takeaway from this report is that more contractors are installing fiber glass windows, because more homeowners are demanding them. The only question is, why? Consumers desire a product with longevity and durability. Fiberglass, on average, dramatically exceeds the lifespan of wood and vinyl windows. Studies show that fiberglass windows have a 38% longer useful life expectancy than vinyl windows. Additionally, fiberglass windows are in effect, all glass. This in turn means that the windows do not expand or contract with changes in temperature. Expansion and contraction is a problem that plagues vinyl windows causing them to lose their dimensional integrity. These major benefits and more have helped to contribute to the rise of fiberglass windows.
