Ultrex Windows vs. Vinyl Windows
We consider every detail from appearance to energy efficiency to give you high-quality windows custom made to fit your home. That’s why we’re proud to carry Marvin Windows and Integrity Windows to ensure your windows are durable and dependable. In our family’s 70 years of experience, we have learned that windows expand and contract with changing temperatures. Our team has worked with a variety of window materials, seeing first-hand this high level of expansion lead to distortion, seal failures and stress fractures in vinyl windows. Our expertise takes the guesswork out of the selection process for you as we provide high-performance, customizable Integrity Windows made from Ultrex fiberglass to give you the best options that are ultra-durable and built to last. Compared to vinyl, Ultrex has an extremely low rate of contraction, leading to lower levels of distortion and ultimately a longer life for your window.
