Fiberglass vs. Vinyl Windows

Think fiberglass windows and vinyl windows are the same? Think again. Both windows have a different set of pros and cons with a list that can go on and on. There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to windows and each homeowner is different with their preferences when it comes to windows. Unlike wood windows, fiberglass windows are not chosen over vinyl windows for style, regardless of how beautiful they are. Read on to find out more.


Fiberglass windows are a great choice when it comes to windows. These windows are especially great for hot and humid areas like kitchens and bathrooms. Fiberglass windows were designed to work with your window panel. At The Window and Door Shop, Inc, we’re proud to install Milgard fiberglass windows. These windows are perfect for any environment and are made to expand and contract at the same rate as the insulated glass within the frame. This is a great benefit that many windows do not offer. This contraction takes pressure off window seals and allows a fog-free, clear view while reducing the chance for seal failure. 

Vinyl Windows 

On the other hand, vinyl windows are great windows as well. These windows are extremely energy efficient and will help cut down the cost of your expensive energy bills. Vinyl windows help block out damaging ultra violet rays that can potentially ruin your furniture, antiques, curtains, carpeting, and wood flooring.

Vinyl windows are also great for blocking out unwanted outside noise. Whether you live in a quiet suburban neighborhood or a loud and busy rural neighborhood, vinyl windows can reduce the noise that penetrates through the glass. Maybe you have noisy next door neighbors or you live on a street where people love to rev their engine past your window in the middle of the night. With vinyl windows, you’ll experience better sleeps and you’ll enjoy your home even more.
