Any window and roofing contractor will tell you that you’ll have no shortage of frame materials to choose from for your window. After all, you can pick from aluminum, vinyl or wood, so long as it suits your needs. While there’s no doubt that all of these materials will perform admirably, there is another window frame material that rises above the rest; Ultrex® fiberglass frames. These fiberglass frames are often used in the Infinity® fiberglass replacement windows by Marvin® Windows and Doors and homeowners love them.
Read on as D-Wing Construction explains the benefits you can get from the Ultrex fiberglass frames.
Do you lack the time to conduct maintenance procedures on your windows? Then Ultrex is the fiberglass frame for you. Since Ultrex has low expansion capabilities, any window that uses this fiberglass frame stays and looks as if it was installed yesterday. It’s virtually maintenance-free due to its resistance to various damage, such as warping rotting, corrosion, and rust. It doesn’t require sanding, scraping or painting.
Replicates Traditional Wood
If you want traditional wood windows but don’t think the choice is a practical one, then choose Ultrex. Its intricate profiles allow it to replicate the features of a traditional wood window while maintaining its durable properties.
Ultrex has proven itself to be as strong as low carbon steel and is actually eight-times stronger than vinyl windows. Due to this, manufacturers have to use diamond-edge blades just to be able to cut it to size. With Ultrex fiberglass frames, you won’t have to worry about replacing your windows for a long time.
Aside from its durability and damage resistance, Ultrex is also built for long-term stability. This stability greatly reduces any risks of seal failures and air leakage through the window, allowing you to save a significant amount on your monthly utility bills.
Windows are made not just for energy efficiency purposes and letting in natural light. Its other purpose is to allow you to enjoy the view of the outdoors from the comfort of your home. While most windows will make their window frame profile wider for added strength, Ultrex fiberglass allows your window to have a narrower window frame profile to increase the window’s glass area.
