Renewal by Andersen® windows are made with Fibrex®, an innovative composite material that counts long-term performance among its many advantages. Today, your local window company takes a look at how well Fibrex window frames perform as they age.
The Long-Term Durability StudyBuilding materials have to undergo various industry-approved tests to see how well they perform in real-world conditions before distribution by a manufacturer. Most tests involve the products getting extended exposure to UV rays and temperature extremes during simulations within a controlled environment.
For Renewal by Andersen, testing our products in a controlled environment wasn’t good enough. We decided to go above and beyond by administering a long-term durability study to see how well our products performed in real-world conditions over a period of many years. For the study, 10 double-hung windows were installed in a customer’s home in Minnesota—a state widely known for its muggy summers and brutal winters. After 20 years, the windows were removed from the home and taken back to the company’s facilities for analysis via extensive laboratory work.
According to the findings, the windows were found to be in almost the same exact condition as the day they were installed 20 years ago. They showed no signs of warping, chipping, peeling or cracking, and they had no moisture damage or other hardware issues. This is one of the reasons why we offer a 20-year limited warranty on our Fibrex window frames and sashes–one of the strongest warranties in the industry.
Benefits of FibrexFibrex gives our replacement windows their exceptional beauty. Combining the elegant beauty of natural wood with the low-maintenance qualities of vinyl, Fibrex is a cut above the rest when it comes to frame materials.
Fibrex windows also provide better insulation than alternative materials, and they’re more eco-friendly too. During manufacturing, the leftover materials used to create Fibrex frames can be reused and recycled. This contributes to fewer wastes thrown in landfills, preserving the environment.
