In this post—part two of a multi-part series—we will explore and compare two popular window framing materials, aluminum and fiberglass. Aluminum windows have been a popular choice since the 1960s and remain a popular choice today. Fiberglass windows, on the other hand, are relatively new to the market on a large scale.

In the first of a multi-part series, we will be exploring some of the key differences between window materials. In this post, we will discuss an old classic—wood windows—and a relative newcomer to the industry—fiberglass windows. In this multi-part series, our aim is not to anoint one product as superior to the others, but simply to inform consumers of the major differences between our different product choices.


We will explore aesthetics, maintenance requirements, and energy efficiency in each part of our series.

Window replacements are one of the most common home improvement projects today. In fact, even during the economic downturn of recent years, window replacement projects remained steady and even grew in some areas.


With rising energy costs and environmental awareness, many consumers are now looking to replace windows that in many cases are relatively new and still functioning properly. It is estimated that as much as 50 million homes in America still have single-pane windows, and many of these homeowners are now opting to replace these inefficient windows with new multi-paned energy efficient units.
