Vinyl is one of the most popular frame materials for window replacement. However, there’s another material that is becoming more and more popular among homeowners due to its beauty and durability: Fibrex®.
Here’s a quick comparison between the two window materials.
The insulation of your windows is critical as this will impact your home’s energy efficiency and comfort levels. In terms of insulation, both Fibrex and vinyl window frames offer great performance. However, Fibrex beats vinyl when it comes to insulation due to the way the composite material is manufactured.
Fibrex is a more sustainable option than vinyl. This is because vinyl frames are usually made of virgin plastics, i.e., 100% new materials. Fibrex, on the other hand, is made from partially reclaimed materials, making it a more eco-friendly choice for window replacement.
To install a Fibrex window in your home, simply turn to the pros of Renewal by Andersen® of Portland for assistance.
Fibrex windows have an edge over vinyl windows when it comes to durability. Fibrex is designed to resist the effects of wear and tear better as it expands and contracts very little even when exposed to extreme temperature swings. Vinyl frames tend to suffer from distortions due to heat exposure.
