Installing new windows instantly updates the appearance of your home, and if the window frames are fiberglass, the effect lasts for years. Fiberglass is strong and durable, and it can provide the appearance of wood without the need for constant maintenance. What’s more, top-quality fiberglass windows like Infinity Windows from Marvin offer further benefits.
New or Replacement?
Whether you select new or replacement windows may affect how radically the look of your home changes. Replacement windows fit into the existing window openings in the house walls, which means they must be the same size as the original windows. The new frames, window styles and colors enhance the home’s appearance.
Window frames made of fiberglass are durable, and the just-installed look doesn’t fade as quickly as it can with other frame materials. State-of-the-art materials like Ultrex fiberglass in Infinity Windows feature the fine-grained texture of wood but don’t warp, weather or decay. With a little maintenance, Ultrex fiberglass remains robust and stable and resists denting, scratching and discoloration. In addition, the patented acrylic finish is three times thicker than other painted finishes.
A concern some homeowners have about installing replacement windows is that the new window frames won’t match the rest of the home. This isn’t a problem with fiberglass because the frames can be painted. Ultrex fiberglass can be stained the same color as the existing woodwork or, for contrast, can be stained a different color that provides an attractive complement.
Visible Glass Area
Replacing old windows with fiberglass windows improves the home’s appearance by increasing the proportion of glass to the window frame. The strength of Ultrex fiberglass means that the frame size is smaller than wood, vinyl or Fibrex windows. The increased amount of glass admits more light into the home’s interior and freshens the exterior appearance of the home.
Investing in replacement windows will not only enhance a home’s curb appeal but will also increase the value of your home. Replacement windows are available in a wide range of styles, including awning windows, which open upward and outward and have an elegant appeal, double hung windows with their contemporary look and easy-to-operate sliding windows that have a simple, open appearance. Alternatively, a traditional effect can be created with Simulated Divided Lites (SDL’s) or casement windows. The window style and color of the frames should reflect and enhance the overall style of the home.
New or replacement fiberglass windows provide a fast, effective update to a home’s appearance and allow homeowners to alter and improve the style of their home. In addition, the new look is long-lasting with little maintenance. Speak to a professional, qualified contractor about the options available for refreshing the look of your home.
