Fiberglass Replacement Windows

We offer fiberglass replacement windows at many of our locations. Contact your local Zen Windows branch to learn if this option is available in your area.

Fiberglass is engineered for efficiency, durability, and long-lasting performance. Because this material offers superior strength, fiberglass window frames are often thinner than vinyl frames, giving you a more expansive view of the exterior. They are also less prone to expansion and contraction in extreme temperatures, leading to a lower chance of warping and cracking.

The same features that help make vinyl windows more efficient, secure, and easy to maintain are also available with fiberglass windows. However, fiberglass has the added benefit of being fully recyclable at the end of its life span, making it an overall more eco-friendly product than vinyl.

Which Window Material Is Best?

Vinyl and fiberglass windows are both low-maintenance. Unlike wood, these windows don’t need to be sanded and refinished every few years. They both also offer sleek designs and opportunities for customization. Pick out the aesthetic features that meet your needs best, such as grille patterns, decorative glass, colored frames, and advanced screens.

In the end, vinyl might be your best choice if you’re on a budget, but you still want replacement windows that will last a lifetime. Fiberglass could be the better option if you would like windows with thinner frames and maximum eco-friendliness.
