Fiberglass Composite Windows in Multi-Family Housing

By Marvin Windows & Doors, AIA Arkansas Blue Ribbon Partner


This course will focus on the use of fiberglass composite windows in multi-family housing, with an emphasis on Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) housing. The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and HUD have rigid standards for window construction and installation, such as fiberglass cladding colors, water-repellent millwork, air leakage, water penetration, structural loading, weather stripping and sealed insulating glass. This program addresses how to meet fenestration standards by using appropriate technologies.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe various types of multi-family housing, including HUD housing, and their place in the building industry.
  2. List FHA/HUD Standards for windows.
  3. Determine how fiberglass composite windows help to meet these standards.
  4. Cite case studies where fiberglass composite windows have effectively met standards.
