Renewal by Andersen® changed the window replacement industry with its unique and improved process. But apart from developing a new and distinct method, it also introduced an innovative material for manufacturing frames. In 1992, the company perfected and patented the Fibrex® composite material.
Designed with the strength and stability of wood plus the low-maintenance features of vinyl, Fibrex has certainly changed the game. Opting for this type of material ensures a worthwhile investment, all thanks to the features incorporated in Fibrex window frames.
Renewal by Andersen of Nashville, a reputable provider of replacement doors and windows, lists several benefits that you can expect from our Fibrex windows.
Strength and Durability
Fibrex is twice as strong as vinyl, so you can count on its weathertight seal to remain weathertight. The material can withstand even the most extreme temperature swings, maintaining its stability and structural rigidity in all climates.
Vinyl frames typically have a higher expansion and contraction rate, making them susceptible to bowing, cracking and glass seal damage. Fibrex, on the other hand, expands and contracts only slightly, so it’s better conditioned to resist potential damage from fluctuating temperatures.
Fibrex has exceptional thermal insulating properties. In fact, it can insulate 700 times better than aluminum. And when combined with the Andersen® High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass, you can rest assured that your indoor space will be comfortable regardless of season. Your home will remain cozy and warm in the winter, and cool in the summer. Of course, this means your heating and cooling system won’t have to work so hard to maintain the temperature inside your home, preventing any significant increase in your energy bills.
Resistance to Decay
One of the main reasons why Fibrex windows can offer a long service life is the material’s resistance to rot and corrosion – which are often the most common reasons why windows have to be replaced prematurely.
Your windows should also be easy to maintain. Fibrex windows do not peel, crack, flake, blister or corrode. You don’t need to worry about repainting your windows, making your maintenance routine a lot simpler. Take note, though, that low maintenance does not necessarily mean Fibrex windows can go without any level of maintenance at all. Just make sure to clean and inspect the units regularly so that the windows can be functional for many years to come.
Wide Range of Color and Finish Choices
Fibrex windows have a wide selection of colors – including dark shades for the exterior, which are not commonly found in other replacement windows. So, if you’re keen on creating a unique look that would make your exterior more visually interesting, you can surely achieve your desired aesthetic with Fibrex windows.
Maximum Glass Area
Fibrex frames are typically narrower than those in standard windows – which means more glass area and a larger viewing area. Whether your window opens to natural scenery or the cityscape, it’s so much easier to make this panoramic view the center of your home’s design.
Remember that your window is not just the glass or the framing material. It’s a combination of these main elements and other smaller components that enable the window to operate seamlessly. Renewal by Andersen ensures that you will continue to enjoy using your Fibrex windows for a long time. Its limited warranty is one of the best in the industry, so you can be sure your investment is protected against certain kinds of damage.
Reduced Environmental Impact
Fibrex is 40% made from clean, reclaimed wood fiber, which can be reground and reused after the window’s serviceable life ends. This means Fibrex windows don’t simply end up as landfill waste, reducing the material’s impact on the environment.
