One of the key factors to consider when investing in new windows is the framing material. Wood, vinyl and aluminum are some of the most common choices, but they each have drawbacks. Composite, however, offers a combination of the best features of other framing materials, making it one of the best options.
Fibrex® is one such example. Renewal by Andersen® of Oregon and SW Washington, your trusted source of replacement windows and patio doors, explains what makes Fibrex an ideal window material.
Fibrex is as strong as wood. Unlike wood, however, it doesn’t corrode, crack or pit, and it’s not vulnerable to rot or mold growth. Fibrex windows can maintain their rigidity and stability no matter what Mother Nature throws at them. Fibrex is also highly resistant to warping. The addition of polymers during the extrusion process makes it twice as strong as vinyl.
When you invest in replacement windows equipped with Fibrex frames, you’ll rarely have to worry about maintenance. That’s because Fibrex doesn’t expand and contract when exposed to extreme temperature changes. Plus, the material doesn’t require scraping or painting. Expect the interior and exterior trim color to remain vibrant after many years.
Fibrex is also highly energy-efficient, helping your home stay more comfortable year-round without burdening your HVAC system. This results in lower energy bills.
