Why You Should Invest in New Windows this Summer
Monday, July 24, 2017
It’s tempting to settle with advertised “bargains” when you are thinking about replacing your windows. Yet when it comes to an investment that benefits you in the long run, the cheapest prices don’t always pay off. There are two critical factors when you are considering upgrading your home: the window and installation quality.

Why upgrade to Fiberglass Windows this Summer
1. Let in the light – Without all the heat!
Infinity from Marvin fiberglass windows provide more glass space than vinyl windows. Since vinyl is not as strong as fiberglass, more material is needed for the frames. This means that vinyl window frames are slightly thicker than fiberglass, impinging on glass space- and your view! New windows have glaze options that allow plenty of beautiful light to shine through, without the summer heat that goes with it. In other words, more glass, more view, more light and less heat.
2. Boost energy efficiency and reduce your bills
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, old, inefficient windows can cause your energy bills to be about 10-25% higher during the summer and winter. It is estimated that replacing your windows can offer significant savings, some reporting 30-40%. This is potentially money back in your pocket!
3. Increase your home’s durability
Windows in a poor state will only continue to deteriorate, quickly. If they are broken, damaged, or warped it may be time to consider replacing them. Infinity from Marvin fiberglass windows have a 38% longer lifespan than vinyl. Since the fiberglass material can expand and contract at the same rate as the glass the chance of leaks decreases, with no warping or cracking like vinyl.
4. Add curb appeal to your home and enhance its’ value
Replacing your windows can be a draw for potential homebuyers if and when you put your home on the market. Infinity from Marvin fiberglass windows can mimic a lot of looks so you do not have to lose your wood aesthetic. Fiberglass comes in a number of “baked-in” colors, as well with the advantage of being paintable.
These are just some of the many reasons why making the investment to replace your windows will benefit you in the long run. Give us a call today to find out more!
