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.

"I can't say enough about Renewal by Andersen. From our initial sit down with the salesman to the final touches being put on our new windows, the whole experience was great! The windows look amazing & the installers were very careful to keep everything clean & cause minimal disruption in my home. Yes, they may be a little expensive, but you pay for what you get. These are quality windows installed by trained professionals. Communication was great & time frame was faster than i expected. They really deliver! I literally had nothing to worry about accept writing the check. I would strongly recommend this company to others! And I'll be calling them back out in the Spring to replace the last 3 windows on my house!"
