You’ve most likely landed here because you want to learn more about your fiberglass window options. Before we get started, let’s take a small step back and determine what fiberglass is exactly.

Fiberglass was invented in the late 30s, and while its most frequent application is home insulation, fiberglass is used in a vast selection of products today, including as a fix for automobile damage. Fiberglass itself is made of thin fibers of glass that are woven together and are commonly used with certain types of resin depending on their application.

Now that we know how fiberglass is made, what makes fiberglass windows so appealing? First, fiberglass windows have higher 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 that in mind depending on the climate you experience in Saint Louis.
