Fiberglass windows have been around for a while now. They are typically higher in price than that of vinyl. This is partly due to the process that is required to make the various rails and stiles. Their structural properties are very good also. One thing that I did not like about the product is that the master frame and sash corner construction is an epoxy weld(glue) as opposed to a fusion weld on the vinyl products. Keep in mind that there are still mechanical(screw applied) corner conection in viyl products available. These rely on the sealant joint to keep the elements out of the home. You may want to consider vinyl as an alternative. Plenty of dealers out there that can help you out.
I hope that this helps.
