In reply to Pros & Cons of Fiberglass replacement windows by Rick on January 4th, 2001 01:14 PM [Go to top of thread]

Hi, Rick, First big question," has the Salesperson
ever painted the widows they are trying to sell you"
Normaly Fiberglass never needs painting, the color is
already in the f/g as it is being molded.
The female mold is first coated with a nonstik type of
polish ( gell), then another type of gell is used
on the male mold,and the the glass is laid to the
thickness required.
Maybe the salesperson, is thinking of drawn pvc plastic
which is used here in Europe a lot.(and the color is
in the material) so it never has tobe painted.
Now dont get me wrong, plastic windows are very good
and the insulation fator is unbeatable, but make sure
of the color first.............
As for the old woodern windows ( frames/sashs ) if
you are carefull, and take them out without damage
I'm sure you will get a buyer for them, because they
are hard to come by, ( I know of only two guys who
can make theses windows. one guy as old as dirt and myself.)
so before you sign anything make sure its what you want
color wise.......... have fun out there. John 2000
