FiberFrame or THV Compozit - thoughts?

jasonmolinariOctober 22, 2013

In speaking to my window guy, after i told him we didn't care for the glossyness of Vinyl, he offered up FiberFrame fiberglass windows or THV Compozit windows.

I can find precious little information regarding the quality of these windows.
Anyone have any opinions, thoughts, concerns. Looking at them vs. Marvin Infinity windows both for cost concerns as well as the option to use laminated glass for better STC performance.

appreciate any thoughts.

The best composite i have seen thus far is a window called Starmark that is made by okna windows. I have yet to see another composite window that looks nicer or is more air tight.

The THV uses a cellular composite material and while I am a fan, there are more proven executions of that material.

Starmark is one that comes to mind and is a well vetted and reviewed product.

What window was he offering as the "Fiber" frame?
