The window frame plays an integral role in the efficiency and strength of the window. While wood, vinyl, aluminum and fiberglass remain popular frame options for window replacement, more and more homeowners are in the market for alternatives that combine the best qualities of these window materials without their weaknesses.
At Renewal by Andersen®, we favor Fibrex® frames for our replacement windows. This innovative composite material combines polymers and reclaimed wood fibers. The result is a frame material that’s more durable and energy-efficient than any other option. Here’s what makes it an ideal choice for homeowners:
Fibrex’s composition gives it the same stability and strength as natural wood but with the low-maintenance qualities of vinyl. This allows our replacement windows to withstand the harshest elements. Even with massive temperature swings, the material has a high tolerance to expansion and contraction. As a result, Fibrex windows will retain their appearance years after installation without rotting, fading, chipping or warping.
Unlike wood and fiberglass, replacement windows equipped with Fibrex frames don’t require frequent painting and maintenance to preserve their appearance. A unique fabrication process blends the color with the Fibrex material during manufacturing for long-lasting beauty.
Exceptional Insulating Properties
Fibrex offers excellent thermal insulation to ensure consistent indoor comfort. When Fibrex frames are paired with High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass, the result is a replacement window that effectively keeps your home warm during winter and cool during summer. You can expect better energy efficiency in the form of lower heating and cooling requirements, which translates to lower energy bills.
