Strength and Durability
Twice as strong as vinyl, Fibrex® material means weathertight seals stay weathertight. Its durable nature means that it can stand up to even the most extreme temperature swings, maintaining its stability and rigidity in all climates.
Your Renewal by Andersen® windows are warranted not to flake, rust, blister, peel, crack, pit or corrode.+ And years down the road, they will be as easy to operate as the day they are installed.
The strength of Fibrex® material means narrower frames; narrower frames mean more glass—and more view. Plus, the extrusion process allows us to craft your windows to any shape—meaning you can match the architectural style of your home or define a new look.
FIBREX® COMPOSITE MATERIAL
Our revolutionary Fibrex composite material combines the strength and stability of wood with the low-maintenance features of vinyl.
Andersen Corporation created Renewal by Andersen to change the window replacement industry – not only with a different and better process – but also with an innovative new material to make the frames. In 1992, Andersen perfected and patented Fibrex® composite material technology.
FIBREX® MATERIAL IS A BETTER WINDOW FRAMING MATERIAL FOR SEVERAL REASONS:
- Because it is a composite using real wood fiber, it is very strong. This means narrower frames which, in turn, means more glass area. Vinyl frames are often thicker, reducing glass area.
- As a low-maintenance composite, it expands and contracts very little, even with extreme temperature swings. This means we can offer dark exterior colors that vinyl can’t because Fibrex® material can “take the heat.”
- Due to this material difference, Renewal by Andersen can offer one of the best window limited warranties in the industry.*
