We tend to take many things for granted when it comes to our homes. If we are searching for a new house, we expect a few basics with the additional features being optional customizations to make the space our own. Unless we want to take on a major project, we want any home we consider to have a solid foundation and the proper structure. We expect to see an exterior in good condition with windows and doors everywhere we need them. However, over time, even these key features need maintenance and replacement, and that is where Gilkey Windows & Exterior Solutions can help. Read on to learn about our options for fiberglass windows.
Many of us can’t imagine a home without windows; we want as many as possible to let in natural light and connect us with the world outside our homes. Without the proper care and replacement, though, these valued features can create many problems, making our home vulnerable to temperature fluctuations and intrusions.
You are most likely familiar with traditional wood and vinyl windows. These products are strong and function well, but they require maintenance and, depending on their age, additional improvements to try to improve their efficiency. If your windows are constantly causing you problems, requiring many repairs and quickly aging, it might be time to replace them. If this maintenance has been overwhelming and exhausting, you should consider Infinity by Marvin Fiberglass Windows for your home. These windows replicate the appearance of traditional windows while providing modern features and requiring less maintenance.
Infinity® replacement windows are made from Ultrex® fiberglass, making them incredibly strong and durable. Fiberglass itself is made of woven glass threads, manufactured to different specifications depending on the requirements. To create the windows, strong cables of glass are soaked with compounded resins to make them even stronger before they are heated and cut. After going through this process, the Ultrex fiberglass is remarkably durable and outlasts and outperforms other types of materials that are used for windows.
With this increased strength, Infinity® windows can withstand all weather conditions and improve the energy-efficiency of your home. One issue with vinyl windows is that they can distort in extreme heat or streak and crack in fluctuating temperatures. This makes them a less than ideal choice in climates where temperatures can vary greatly. Fiberglass windows are a better option in these environments, offer a high level of performance. They also have a low thermal expansion rate which helps to reduce air leaks by keeping the window stable. This stability also improves the window’s functions. Since fiberglass won’t expand as easily, these windows are less likely to stick or swell.
If you want windows that look great and won’t warp, discolor, rot, corrode or rust, then Infinity® windows are for you.
