FAQs about Fibrex® Windows

 

1. What Is Fibrex?

 

Fibrex composite material is made from reclaimed wood fibers and thermoplastic polymer. It combines the well-known durability of wood and the low-maintenance feature of traditional vinyl, and promises to resist bowing, cracking, and rotting. This idea was initially developed when Andersen reused sawdust obtained from wood windows production as an effort to cut down costs. 

 

2. How Does Fibrex Compare With Vinyl Windows?

 

Compared to Fibrex-framed windows, vinyl replacement windows are more susceptible to sagging or warping when exposed to extreme heat. The wood fibers also keep the expansion rate of Fibrex at a low level, keeping the frame in perfect shape and your windows airtight with no room for leaks.

3. What Are the Other Advantages of Fibrex?

On our windows, Fibrex is often paired with High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass which blocks thermal transfer and optimizes insulation activities. It also comes in slimmer frames which allow more glazing and an unobstructed view of your lush garden. And since it doesn’t use wood preservative treatments, it reduces harmful VOC emissions. Finally, Fibrex is expected to retain its stability in varying climates. 

 

4. Does Fibrex Come With Warranties?

 

Fibrex windows are backed by a 20-year limited warranty for Fibrex and glass, a 10-year limited warranty for the frame, sash and locking mechanism, and a 2-year limited warranty for installation. This top-level coverage is to assure customers that only get the highest quality of products and outstanding installation services.

"Absolutely wonderful experience working with renewal. They kept my wife and I up to date all throughout the process from the initial sales pitch to installation. They were courteous and professional throughout. The installation of 8 windows was completed in one day and the product is fantastic. Immediate difference felt inside the home and its much quieter now too. My wife and I are thrilled at our purchase. The windows are a bit pricey but worth every single penny. Wonderful product from a wonderful company. Will definitely be using them in the future to install the rest of the windows in our home."

"When I say, superior service I mean just that!! From start to finish I was pleased!! Step 1, Scheduled appointment at the Home show… easy. Step 2, phone call to confirm appointment the next week….easy. Step 3, in home consultation with Keith Billingsley…..Amazing!!!! Step 4, call and cancel all other Window companies and let them know you have chosen the Best company, Anderson Windows!!! My Windows took a couple of months to come which was not a problem. Oooohhh but when installing day came ( a week early) I was lost for words. The installation team was A1 with professionalism and cleanliness!! They didn’t leave a scrap of trash on my property. It was cleaned up both days. I had Ed Tutton and crew. I had a million questions and they answered every one of them and made me feel so assured with the process. A couple of my Windows had wood rotted. They took care of it and fixed it better than when the house was built!!! Two of my Windows came in broken, it was addressed and shown to us and reorder in the same day!! They will be installed later. The Windows are so beautiful I stood in my master bedroom Windows for almost 3 hours just looking out. I hate Window grates…. I have solid glass Windows now❤️❤️! I wish I would have ordered my new front doors from Anderson Windows. So if you are looking to get new Windows you must go with Anderson Windows!!!"
