Posted yesterday regarding Martin replacement windows. They have vinyl and
fiberglass windows available. The idea of fiber glass really interest me
since you can order them with a stainable veneer on the inside. This window
I am told also comes as a sash and track replacement for glider windows.
Anyone have any info on fiberglass vs vinyl? I hate to spend a bundle on
junk if that 's what fiber glass is.
Thanks for your patience
Natural Resources Canada has put out a thorough Consumer's Guide for
buying energy efficient windows.
Section 7.5 entitled "Better Frame Materials" states,
"The best energy performance in window frames has been achieved using a
fiberglass frame with foam insulation in the frame cavities."
You can download the full PDF document here. I highly recommend it if
you're shopping for windows.
