Homeowners seeking high-performing windows and doors should keep one word in mind — material. As in, which material is used to make a window or door? For Integrity, it’s Ultrex, a pultruded fiberglass that’s tough, durable and built to last. Not to mention it looks fantastic.
So, just how tough is Ultrex? It’s eight times stronger than vinyl and three times stronger than vinyl/wood composites. Windows and doors from Integrity perform at the highest level for the full duration of their life. And they live a long, happy life — as much as 38% longer than vinyl — making them an incredibly smart investment.
Material is just one of the factors involved in the window-buying process.
