Window Options Vinyl vs. Fiberglass Windows
If you live in a region where seasonal temperatures can vary greatly, from extremely hot summers to bitterly cold winters, fiberglass windows are a smart option.
Fiberglass windows can be used in every type of climate, from cold and harsh to hot and steamy. American Vision Windows' top fiberglass manufacturer, Milgard, guarantees their products will maintain their rigidity even in extreme temperature changes.
-Brian Mildenberger, product specialist for Milgard Windows.
Vinyl windows are today's consumer's favorite replacement window because of their energy-saving capability and very, very low maintenance requirements.
But fiberglass windows have carved out a geographical niche for themselves. Their durability and close resemblance to wood make them an attractive higher-end alternative to vinyl and a comparable one to wood windows.
They're also more energy efficient than aluminum windows. Fiberglass resists rotting, warping, and cracking.
Milgard's Ultra fiberglass windows are offered with many of the same glass options as vinyl windows, in many of the same styles. They also offer a variety of finishing touches such as interior wood graining and numerous divided light options.
They install the same as other windows and unlike vinyl, fiberglass can be painted. Less than a handful of manufacturers currently offer fiberglass windows. American Vision Windows offers the best from Milgard in order to serve our clients who live in highly changeable climates.

"The person who came to give the estimate was not an aggressive salesman and was knowledgeable. He was a former independent window installer. He spoke very highly of the integrity of the company's owners, which was a common theme among the employees I met. The installers were very cooperative and capable."
"The company replaced 7 windows in my home. Very pain-free experience. Company was on time, communicative, and did a fast and excellent job tearing out the old wooden windows and replacing them with new single-hung vinyl windows."
