The Best Fiberglass Windows in Orange County, CA

The Cost of Replacement Fiberglass Windows


Marvin Fiberglass Windows

The many benefits of fiberglass are great, but they come with a cost. The average cost of
r
eplacement fiberglass windows can be 50% to 150% higher than vinyl windows depending on the quality of the manufacturer you choose. Fiberglass is a fairly new material being used for windows. There are numerous advantages of using fiberglass window replacements. Fiberglass does not rot, corrode, or rust and it also holds paint well. In addition, fiberglass offers great insulation properties.  Fiberglass window construction is closer to the look of wood, as it does not have the fusion-welded joinery that most vinyl windows have.  Although a fusion weld does have several benefits (strength of construction, elimination of fasteners and weather tightness), one cannot argue that the finished look of fiberglass is attractive and wood-like.

Fiberglass windows are much stronger and more durable than vinyl windows, with a high strength – to – weight ratio. Fiberglass windows provide eight times greater strength than vinyl windows. In comparison to other materials, fiberglass has the highest resistance to rotting, warping, and twisting and the window’s frame and sash corners will not separate or crack. Moreover, fiberglass will not corrode. Ultimately, fiberglass windows will outlast vinyl windows.

There are many factors that can influence the total cost of replacement windows, some of which can make your project much less or much more expensive. When it comes to fiberglass replacement windows there are numerous things that can affect the overall costs. Installation prices as well as the quality of the window that is chosen are two of the biggest factors when determining the overall cost of the window. Make sure to research the different manufacturers of fiberglass replacement windows and choose one that offers high quality based on the reviews of their products. At 21st Century Doors & Windows we offer vinyl windows made by Marvin, Milgard and PlyGem Windows.

When calculating the average cost of window replacement there are several factors that need to be taken into account.  For example are these windows going to be for new construction or replacement windows?  Are they going to be all fiberglass replacement windows or wood clad replacement windows? Also what styles are the windows going to be? Double hung windows, casement windows, picture windows; this will all make a difference in price. How would you liked the windows trimmed? Also, will the windows have grids, no grids, low-e, argon; this will also change the final price per window. Is this a single level home or will scaffolding be needed for a second or third story?

So as you can see that calculating the average cost for replacement windows it’s not such a cut and dry answer.  A member of our design team will happily assist you in making these important decisions based upon several factors, and to make sure that you are thrilled with the outcome of our services.

The cost of replacement windows can be the most effective way to increase the value of your home.  Replacement windows should be looked at as an investment, and one where you can reasonably expect your home's value to increase.

Buying replacement fiberglass windows, is an important decision and bears looking into all the pros and cons associated with your new windows. Quality fiberglass windows vs. inferior ones can affect the value, safety and comfort of your home for many years.  Some come with a 10, 20 or 30 year warranty, and even a lifetime or double lifetime warranty. Sometimes that warranty is not transferable to a new property owner, and with others it is. Some even go so far as to cover broken glass. The biggest concern you should have when replacing with fiberglass windows should not be the cost, but the warranty, stability and strength of the manufacturer that you choose.  With so many in-house and small manufacturers, will they still be around when you need to use your warranty?
