At Renewal by Andersen® of Philadelphia, all our replacement windows are built with Fibrex® – a composite material that’s fast surpassing wood, vinyl and aluminum as the best frame material. Not only is it more durable than these alternatives, but it lasts longer too.
In this post, we discuss the key features that make Fibrex a long-lasting window frame material.
The Best of Both Worlds
Fibrex is a composite material made from natural wood fibers and polymer. This mixture gives the resulting material the beauty and innate toughness of wood, along with the superior weather and heat resilience of polymer.
This unique blend makes our windows low maintenance, which contributes to their natural longevity. Once installed by an expert window company, your Fibrex window frames will never require repainting or scraping and will be virtually immune to rot and decay.
Fibrex boasts the same insulating properties and thermal resistance of wood, but has a longer lifespan due to its polymer mixture. We further boost its energy efficiency by pairing this sturdy frame material with our High-Performance Low-E4® Glass. Our windows can improve your home’s energy efficiency significantly, leading to a more comfortable interior year-round as well as lower energy bills.
We Can Build Narrower Frames
Since Fibrex is naturally durable and resilient, we are one of the few companies that can manufacture replacement windows with extremely narrow frames, without compromising integrity. Slim frames allow for larger glass panes, which means more impressive views and more access to natural light.
At Renewal by Andersen of Philadelphia, our team will make sure your new Fibrex windows are properly installed so you can take full advantage of their many features. Get in touch with us today at (610) 563-2190 to learn more. We serve homeowners throughout Philadelphia, PA.
