Marvin Energy Efficiency

Why Fiberglass is environmentally friendly?

While both fiberglass and vinyl windows are  durable and require nearly no maintenance (they don’t rot or decay from moisture damage), fiberglass is much stronger, resists warping and cracking under weather extremes better than vinyl, giving your new window a very long life cycle and optimal functionality. Manufacturing of the fiberglass process requires very little natural resources to be consumed, especially compared to wood or vinyl. Although fiberglass  is not easy to recycle, the process of manufacturing releases less harmful chemicals into the environment.
