Fiberglass has been around since the late 30s, and while its most commonly used for home insulation, fiberglass is used in a large array of products today, including as a fix for automobile damage. Fiberglass itself is made of thin fibers of glass that are woven together and are commonly used with various types of resin depending on their application.

Now that we know how fiberglass is made, why are fiberglass windows so appealing?
