Fiberglass is quickly becoming the replacement windows material of choice because of its unique advantages that it has over other kinds of windows. Living in, you’re probably looking for a window that doesn’t give into the wear and tear of weather over time. This is the perfect material for you.
Fiberglass windows are manufactured from shaped and molded sheets of glass fibers, which allow for excellent molding characteristics, in addition to high tensile strength. This makes it excellent choice for homeowners looking for a durable window that will last a long time.
Fiberglass is the best insulating material made into windows today. It is made from a simple polymer that is reinforced with thin strands of pulled glass. Air is trapped inside, and it makes for the best insulation of any window type. It also will not conduct heat or cold, so that its temperature should be neutral to the touch. Fiberglass is suitable for any climactic area and any temperature.
Fiberglass windows are very strong and durable with a high strength–to–weight ratio. Fiberglass windows provide eight times greater strength than vinyl windows.
The structure and nature of fiberglass windows is such that while being an excellent temperature insulator, it is also a great sound insulator. This means that with your windows closed and the appropriate glass in place, you will not be subjected to loud sounds outside your home.
Because the insulation of fiberglass is so effective, and because the temperature outside will not warm or cool the actual fiberglass in the window itself, excess condensation will not form in your home in any weather.
When fiberglass windows are required, Quality Roofing Siding and Windows prefers to use products from Marvin Essential Casement collection.
All Essential Casement windows and doors feature Ultrex construction inside and out. Beautiful, easy to use and as low-maintenance as a material can get, Ultrex® provides exceptional aesthetics, outstanding durability, and standard ENERGY STAR-qualified performance. Six exterior finishes combine with pultruded fiberglass construction to offer virtually indestructible exteriors, while the low-maintenance classic white profiled interiors provide a beautiful classic appearance.
What is Ultrex?
Durable, low-maintenance, strong, stable and tough: Everything you want your home to be, and everything that Ultrex delivers.
Ultrex is Marvin’s proprietary creation made of pultruded fiberglass. Thin, strong cables of glass are saturated with special resin compounds, creating a remarkably durable material that vastly outperforms vinyl and roll-form aluminum. Because of its glass components, Ultrex has an extremely low thermal expansion rate; what little effect heat and cold has on it is matched by the glass in your window. So your double hung, glider or other Integrity unit remains tightly sealed without leaks, seal failures or stress cracks to diminish the unit’s long-term performance and energy efficiency.
Their patented finishing process mechanically bonds an impermeable acrylic cap onto the already virtually indestructible surface. This acrylic cap bonds to the pultruded fiberglass during curing and is up to three times thicker than our competitors’ finishes, providing better adhesion and resistance to scratches, marring and dings. Fading is prevented thanks to this superior patented finishing process which resists UV degradation, with five times more UV resistance than vinyl; This eliminates fading, chalking and streaking while allowing Integrity to offer darker finishes, like Bronze and Ebony, with total confidence in their long-term performance.
