Choosing the right windows for your home means having to research the right materials. While there are many great options, each with its own unique pros and cons, in this post, Renewal by Andersen® of Northwest Ohio will share why Fibrex® is the best choice.
Fibrex is Andersen® Corporation’s revolutionary composite material that combines the strength and durability of wood with hints of vinyl. Patented by Andersen in 1992, it has immediately become a go-to among homeowners and window contractors for these particular factors:
Fibrex frames have superior thermal insulating properties: vinyl, fiberglass and wood. Because it is made with Andersen High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass, it keeps your place warm over the winter and cool in the summer.
The special polymer formulation used in each Fibrex material makes it resistant to decay and fungal growth. This makes it an ideal window replacement because it never needs scraping nor repainting.
Unlike vinyl alone, Fibrex is twice as stable and rigid. The average stiffness of wood is higher, but is less predictable than the material due to natural variations of wood. Moreover, because it is strong, frames can be made narrower, making it easier for people to customize and style their homes.
