We were impressed from start to finish with our replacement windows – from Vince helping us decide on what the best windows were for our home by providing us with several options to compare to Craig and his crew that worked at our home this week. Our new windows look great and the craftsmanship on the trim has made a huge impact on the look of our home! We look forward to working again with Weather-Tek in the future.
Offering many structural benefits over vinyl and significant cost savings over wood, many of today’s homeowners are choosing composite or fiberglass windows and doors for their home.
What is a composite? Well, essentially it’s a big science project. Composites are the industry’s way of trying to create the perfect window or door – blending the best features of different raw materials together into one product. Rather than all-vinyl or all-wood, these products take a bonding agent like resin, epoxy or a plastic polymer, and mix them with a solid material such as silica glass fibers or wood fibers, making for strong composite and fiberglass windows and doors!
The bonding agents offer qualities such as water- and fade-resistance, while the solid material adds strength and durability. It’s a science experiment that is a real win for homeowners!
If you look at composite windows online, you’ll see that it’s a trend across the entire building industry. Composite products have become a go-to for performance, longevity, and value. Other composite products you might have heard of include composite decking and engineered siding.
