Renewal by Andersen® of Portland is the leading choice for window replacement in Salem, Oregon, and the surrounding areas. We owe our success to our excellent customer service, professional installation, and our superior products. Renewal by Andersen manufactures our windows from their exclusive Fibrex® material. Here’s how this material performs against other common window materials:
Fibrex and Wood
Wood is the traditional choice when it comes to window frame material. Wood has a natural beauty, acts as a good insulator, and is sturdy. Unfortunately, wood requires extensive maintenance, particularly as the window ages. It needs a good coat of paint and regular inspections for rot. Fibrex, on the other hand, captures the authentic beauty of wood without the risk of rotting. Just as strong and beautiful, it doesn’t require painting or an extensive maintenance program.
Fibrex and Vinyl
Vinyl is one of the most popular window frame materials around. It comes in a wide range of colors and it is easy to maintain. Unfortunately, vinyl is susceptible to changes in temperature. Strong heat and cold can warp and damage the frame. The sun can also cause its exterior colors to fade.
Fibrex replacement windows in Lake Oswego stay stable and rigid under any kind of temperature change. It also won’t fade, crack, chip, or peel. Fibrex is two times stronger than vinyl, as well. You don’t have to worry about the weather damaging the frame.
Fibrex and Aluminum

That’s why Renewal by Andersen made sure that our Fibrex window frames insulate up to 700 times better than aluminum windows. They’ll prevent your home’s energy from escaping and help keep your home comfortable. Renewal by Andersen also custom manufactures each of our replacement windows.
