Fibrex® Windows: Stronger Than Vinyl, Better Than Wood

One advantage of vinyl replacement windows is their durability. Vinyl filled the massive gap left by the many shortcomings of wood-frame windows in terms of maintenance and longevity. For all its merits, however, vinyl has a few of its own disadvantages. The material is prone to warping when exposed to Tennessee’s hot and humid summers, causing problems in its operability and performance.

Fibrex® Windows: Stronger Than Vinyl, Better Than Wood

For the longest time, homeowners had to choose between the pros and cons of either vinyl or wood when it came to replacement windows. That is, until Andersen developed a material that has the benefits of both vinyl and wood, without their known limitations. They called this material Fibrex® and it has formed the backbone of many Renewal by Andersen® window replacements. Let our experts at Renewal by Andersen® of Memphis explain the qualities that make Fibrex a superior window frame.

Stronger Than Vinyl

Fibrex is a composite material made with real wood fibers combined with a durable polymer base. It was designed, developed, and implemented by Andersen in 1992 for use in all window and door replacement projects of their installation arm, Renewal by Andersen. Like vinyl, it possesses a rigid structure that resists many types of physical damage, including one that has plagued vinyl for the longest time: warping.

Better Than Wood

Wood fiber chips provide Fibrex with a natural wood grain that looks just as good as its parent material. It is infused with color right from production so Fibrex frames never fade and never need to be repainted. It also has very low-maintenance requirements than wood and can last decades before showing any sign of deterioration.

The Best Replacement Windows

When used in conjunction with Low-E4® High-Performance glass in replacement windows, Fibrex can help your home stay cooler in the summer and warm in the winter. It’s insulating properties also allow you to save more on your energy bills every year.

"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!!!"
