When it comes to window replacement, choosing the right material and window contractor is essential. One of your best options today is the Renewal by Andersen® exclusive Fibrex® frame material. It features the strength of wood and vinyl’s ease of maintenance.
Here are the characteristics of Fibrex that make it a great window material.
Extreme Strength and Durability
Fibrex is made of 40% reclaimed wood and 60% liquefied polymer, making it strong and easy to maintain. Due to the rigidity and stability of the composite material, we can make windows with narrower frames and in nearly all shapes and sizes. On the other hand, vinyl can’t be made that way because its frames have the tendency to expand or contract, which also increases the likelihood of the glass breaking.
Another reason you should choose Fibrex material for your window installation project is that it improves your home’s ventilation. Our windows feature High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass as well, which helps you stay comfortable all year round. Fibrex offers better thermal insulation than aluminum, which has high heat and cold conductivity.
Added Beauty and Easy Upkeep
Fibrex is guaranteed not to peel, pit, chip or flake since it doesn’t expand or contract. Because of this, the window will maintain its weathertight seal. Many of these problems are common concerns with steel and wood windows. Wood is prone to water-related problems while steel is prone to rust and corrosion. With Fibrex windows, you don’t need to worry about painting or scraping. It requires very little maintenance, but it’s extremely durable and long-lasting.
