Vinyl is by far the most used material for replacement windows in the United States today and for good reason. It is inexpensive, versatile and fairly durable, however, it is not perfect. For one thing, it expands more than twice as much as wood when the temperature changes. Enter Renewal by Andersen’s Fibrex® material. It gives you the low maintenance properties of vinyl and the durability of wood. Here are the other advantages that Fibrex has over other window materials.
1. Energy Efficiency
Fibrex has superior thermal insulating properties that help keep your home cool during the summer, and warm during the winter. Paired with our different glass options, you’ll end up with windows that will not only look beautiful but help cut down on your energy costs as well.
Fibrex replacement windows are extremely durable. This means we can manufacture windows with narrower frames. This in turn means that you get more glass, enhancing your view from the outside. As mentioned above, the problem with conventional vinyl windows is that they have a high expansion and contraction rate which can eventually break the glass seal. With Fibrex, this isn’t an issue.
By getting Renewal by Andersen’s Fibrex windows, you can preserve the architectural beauty of your home. Since Fibrex goes through an extrusion process, we are able to manufacture windows in all shapes and sizes – meaning you can match the original architecture of your home, or define a new look.
