The type of material used for your replacement windows can directly influence their longevity and performance. That’s why you’ll need to consider your options carefully. Some homeowners go for wood, while others pick vinyl. But if you want to improve the look and feel of your home in the best way, make a bold decision and choose Fibrex® composite. Curious about this exceptional window material? Let Renewal by Andersen® of Greater Philadelphia, the area’s premier window company, answer some of the most frequently asked questions about Fibrex® windows.
- What is Fibrex® exactly? Fibrex® is a revolutionary composite material used in Renewal by Andersen® replacement windows. It consists of wood fibers and thermoplastic material. A portion of both wood grain and thermoplastic used in the production of one batch of Fibrex® is reclaimed following the process, and used again in the next batch. Because Fibrex® leaves almost zero carbon footprint and helps limit waste material, it’s considered one of the most eco-friendly window materials available right now.
- Are Fibrex® windows durable? Yes, incredibly so. Fibrex® offers the superior durability and insulating properties of wood, and combines them with the low-maintenance performance of vinyl. This makes our Renewal by Andersen® replacement windows tough enough to resist cracking, pitting, peeling, corrosion, rot, and warping. In fact, Fibrex® is so durable that we can craft it into any shape, allowing for windows that have thinner frames and a larger glass area.
- Fibrex® replacement windows are safe, right? No worries–they definitely are! Unlike other window materials, Fibrex® reduces volatile organic compound emissions because it doesn’t require wood preservative treatments and painting to keep them in good shape.
- Are Fibrex® windows energy-efficient? They certainly are. When closed, Fibrex® windows create a tough and tight seal that prevents air leakage and significant energy loss. And when paired with our High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass, they can help keep your home thermally comfortable without the costly energy bills.
