Inline Fiberglass makes a beautiful product and we love the windows we had installed in November 2015.
We chose fiberglass windows because we wanted black windows that were paintable in case we or future owners wanted to repaint them. We also appreciated what we'd researched about the greater durability and strength of fiberglass windows.
- The product is awesome - our windows seem larger as there is more glass space per window
- The installation team was top notch
- Fiberglass windows factory painted black inside and out
- Brick to brick installation
- Combination of Low "E" (Hard Coat 180 or Soft Coat 272, depending on location of window) with argon gas and Super Spacer
- 3 1/2" Jamb Extensions (paint grade)
- Standard black plastic hardware
- 10 windows, mostly casement (1 awning); 1 bay window with side casements; 1 six foot wide patio door
- 1 1/4" flat aluminum grills in a pattern at the top of the glass including a shadow bar between the inner and outer panes to simulate true divided lights on all products except the patio doors (which had grills only)
- Install of mouldings that we supplied on all windows and patio door except for the bay window and kitchen window as those required custom details that we did ourselves
- Lead time was supposed to be 10 weeks and it took over 20
- Limited communication after the 10 week mark despite repeated follow-up
Luckily we were persistent and the windows were installed before the winter in November 2015 (signed contract in July). Inline Fiberglass redeemed themselves with the top notch product and installation team.
Some things that made our job more expensive were the custom paint job, number of casement windows, and the custom grills. We don't regret these extras but one can certainly save quite a bit by sticking with a standard colour and getting plain windows.
Despite the issues we experienced we would still recommend Inline to anyone seeking a high quality fiberglass product and will contact them when we are ready to replace our basement windows.
