All Renewal by Andersen® replacement window frames are made of Fibrex®, a unique composite material that brings together the desirable qualities of wood and vinyl. Fibrex was researched, developed and patented by our parent company, Andersen® Corporation. It offers the following benefits:
Superior Strength – As a trusted replacement windows contractor, we stand behind our replacement windows. We can say with certainty that our Fibrex frames are stronger than traditional wood window frames; they’re even tested to be twice as strong as modern vinyl. The combination of wood fibers and polymer makes Fibrex material resistant to impact and expansion and contraction caused by temperature changes, which means a lower chance of cracking or warping.
Exceptional Insulation – One of the key features of our replacement windows is its energy efficiency. Thanks to its wood fiber content, our Fibrex material window frames dramatically reduce heat transfer. Together with our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass, you get replacement windows that minimize heat loss, which reduces your indoor heating requirements and energy consumption.
Low Maintenance – Fibrex material frames are easy to clean, just like vinyl frames. Plus, the window colors and finishes are factory-applied and will never require scraping and repainting for the rest of its lifespan. It’s guaranteed not to rot, decay or grow mold. All you need to maintain these frames are a sponge and a bucket of water. Our double hung windows make it even easier (and safer) to clean, thanks to its inward-tilting design.
Responsibly Manufactured – Fibrex is made from wood fibers and polymer. The wood fibers are sourced from Andersen Corporation’s wood manufacturing facilities. The waste wood is then pulped, dehydrated and processed to combine with polymers. It also features low volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions, meaning less off-gassing that would otherwise contribute to indoor air pollution. Along with our parent company Andersen Corporation, we are the only window companies to receive the Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) Indoor Advantage Gold™ certification.
