Average Fiberglass Window Price Breakdown
While fiberglass windows are more expensive than bottom-of-the-barrel vinyl windows, they outperform them in every way. Considering their gorgeous style and decades of performance, many homeowners actually regard them as a bargain. Here’s what the average fiberglass window price looks like (complete with installation):Standard Double Hung Window: Approximately $1,000 Per Window
This no-frills fiberglass window provides exceptional performance at a strong price. With fiberglass inside and out, these double hung windows are an excellent entry point into the practical and stylish advantages that fiberglass provides. You can count on the Marvin windows in this price tier to be extremely easy to operate, last for decades, and have a sleek, modern look.Standard Casement Window: Approximately $1,200 Per Window
The fiberglass window price goes up when it’s in a casement window compared to a double hung option. Casement windows are fantastic as they have an easy-to-operate crank and offer a completely unobstructed view. Just like the double hung options, these windows come in a no-frills sleek style and promise exceptional performance.Decorative Double Hung Window: Approximately $1,200 to $1,400 Per Window
You have a huge variety of add-ons, colors, and features to make your widows all your own. Making a stylistic statement can raise the fiberglass window cost — depending on what upgrades you choose. Real wood cladding on the window interior is one of the most popular options as it allows you to have the sought-after look of wooden windows with the price and advantages of fiberglass. You also have access to a variety of exterior colors through Marvin’s ultra-long-lasting acrylic finishes, including the ever popular black window frames!Decorative Window with Grids: Approximately $1,450
A unique aesthetic that turns your new windows into a showstopper, adding a grid pattern to your windows creates a truly interesting look. A popular add-on for decorative fiberglass windows, grids can come between the panes of glass for easy cleaning. This has a minimal impact on price. Grids can also be installed on the outside of the glass to simulate the look of divided panes of glass. This will cost a bit more.
Fiberglass Window Advantages
The reason that fiberglass windows cost more than basic vinyl windows is that they provide a huge range of benefits that make them a true investment in your home. These are the advantages to count on in every fiberglass window we install:
- Great Warranty — Thanks to Marvin Windows’ quality, all fiberglass windows we install come standard with a no-hassle 20-year manufacturer’s warranty. As great as that warranty is, you can expect them to last much, much longer! And a warranty is truly only as good as the company that stands behind it. Marvin has been in business in the US for over 100 years!
- Incredible Strength — While the style may be sleek, fiberglass is an EXTREMELY strong material, ranking as 7-times stronger than vinyl and twice as strong as steel! This means your windows are so much less likely to leak, crack, or fog. They will also operate consistently year after year.
- Gorgeous Slim Style — When you compare the two frames side-by-side, there’s no question that vinyl windows are downright bulky. Thanks to the strength of the material, fiberglass can be sleek and slim — which looks much better on your home and provides MORE VISIBLE GLASS AREA. Plus, you can’t expect the same level of exciting custom options that fiberglass provides on basic vinyl windows!
