What makes fiberglass replacement windows and doors green?
Going green can be as simple as getting replacement windows and doors. You can’t go far today without seeing or hearing about environmentally friendly products, especially in Colorado. It’s “green” this or “green” that everywhere you look. The Denver Metro Area has repeatedly been on numerous “Healthiest City” lists. With organic products and natural food stores scattered across the state, it is no secret that Colorado has jumped on the “green” bandwagon.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is an agency of the federal government in charge of protecting human health and the environment. The EPA writes and enforces regulations based on laws passed by Congress. They have criteria they use to define a “green” product. The five the agency uses are: energy efficiency, lifespan of material, manufacturing process, manufacturing costs, and impact of the environment.
Fiberglass replacement windows and doors meet all of the EPA’s above criteria. When you come to Gravina’s Window Center, our sales staff will help you understand why fiberglass is a superior material to vinyl. Our goal is to teach our customers about the replacement windows or doors they are buying. Our products use high performance glass, which is what makes the products extremely energy efficient. The windows we sell use two panes of glass instead of one, keeping the hot air in and the cold air out during the wintertime months and vice versa. As any Coloradan knows, our temperatures fluctuate daily. Therefore, having this high performance glass is essential for energy efficiency. Fiberglass windows and doors have a much longer lifespan than the competitor vinyl products. In addition, our sales staff is knowledgeable about the environmentally friendly manufacturing process and costs. The best news yet in regards to “going green”-fiberglass is recyclable by design. Therefore, it has a very low negative impact on the environment.
