Winter is coming, and this is usually that time of the year when everyone are starting to make preparations around their houses. Holiday decorations are a wonderful way to show holiday spirit, and while we at Green Sky take our decoration work very serious, we also know the importance of keeping our house warm during the cold winter. One of the most efficient way to keep the house warm while it’s raining outside is to make sure your windows’ frames are doing their job.
The question is, then, what is the best material to use for windows frame. We decided to compare between probably the two most popular framing materials- vinyl and fiberglass.
Both vinyl and fiberglass frames can come in variety of colors and this shouldn’t really be a deal breaker although fiberglass frames gain the edge here since they are paintable while vinyl frames are not.
These two frames usually don’t cause any problems and are very easy to maintain. The real question when it comes to maintenance is the window type, not the frame itself.
While both vinyl and fiberglass tend to be very energy efficient for their insulation superiority, the fiberglass frame takes the edge again since the fiberglass itself is considered for insulation material.
Like in the other categories, both frames tend to have longlife, but fiberglass tend to be more durable in the long run. In fact, fiberglass frames are considered as the leading material when it comes to durability.
When it comes to price, vinyl is the best material in the market. It is considered very cheap, and also due to the abundance of this material you can find it pretty much anywhere.
