Fiberglass has been used since the late 30s, and while the most common application is home insulation, fiberglass is used in a vast selection of products today, including as a fix for automobile damage. Fiberglass itself is made of thin fibers of glass that are woven together and are usually used with different types of resin depending on their application.

Now that we know how fiberglass is made, what makes fiberglass windows so appealing? To begin wiith, fiberglass windows have more energy efficiency than aluminum windows due to their construction and ability to retain both hot and cool air. They are also subject to much less shrinkage compared to vinyl, so keep that in mind depending on the climate you experience in Lethbridge.
