More Homeowners Demand Fiberglass Windows and Doors

Integrity-Fiberglass-Replacement-Windows-DoorsWe at the Builder Blog have long touted the benefits of Ultrex pultruded fiberglass windows and doors from Integrity. When it comes to longevity and performance, quite simply, fiberglass leaves vinyl and wood windows and doors in the dust.

According to Remodeling Magazine, it now appears more consumers are taking notice:

“Once regarded as a niche product with maybe 2% share of total U.S. window sales, fiberglass products have gained traction during the last few years. The most recent market report jointly released by the American Architectural Manufacturers Association and the Window & Door Manufacturers Association shows fiberglass with a 3.2% share of market, with 2.6% of remodeling/replacement. More contractors are installing them because more homeowners are asking for them.”

Think about it: The average homeowner will purchase more vehicles in his/her lifetime than windows and doors. It’s a big decision that requires careful consideration, which is why we recently created the Decide with the Diamond video series for homeowners featuring home improvement expert Lou Manfredini.
