Fiberglass and Composite Windows

Fiberglass and composite windows are similar to wood in many ways. One of the biggest differences is affordability. Fiberglass and composite products are priced competitively yet still offer many of the features found in high-end wood offerings.

Fiberglass as a frame material is an excellent choice. The expansion and contraction rate of fiberglass is nearly the same as the glass unit seated inside it, so the opportunity for seal failure is minimized.

Why choose fiberglass or composite windows?

  • Low maintenance
  • Energy efficient
  • Stable frame materials
  • Variety of glazing options available

Brands promoted by Parr include:

  • Integrity by Marvin
  • Andersen 100 series
  • Milgard
