Comparing Vinyl & Fiberglass Windows

Windows are one of the most crucial components of a home. That’s why, if you’re in the market for new windows, you should make an informed decision about which material you want, as this will affect your windows’ appearance and performance more than any other feature. During your search, you’re bound to notice that two window materials are exceptionally popular: vinyl and fiberglass. Consider the ways they compare:


Vinyl windows were first manufactured in 1959 as an alternative to wood windows. They’re popular because of their durability, as they typically last decades and are virtually maintenance free. Vinyl windows are also:

  • Energy efficient, as they’ll help insulate your home and lower the burden on your HVAC system, which can lead to reduced energy costs
  • Cost effective, because they are more affordable than many other types of windows yet offer many of the same benefits
  • Versatile, as they come in a vast array of colors, finishes, grid configurations, styles, and other design options


Fiberglass windows are composed of glass fibers and resin, and they provide many of the benefits that vinyl windows do, including excellent energy efficiency and low maintenance requirements. Additionally, fiberglass windows offer:

  • Unmatched strength, and can last more than 50 years after installation
  • The polished and sophisticated look of real wood, and they can be painted using a stunning selection of colors
  • An environmentally friendly option, as their materials can be recycled and they take 80% less energy to produce
