You’re probably familiar with vinyl, metal and wood as frame options for a window replacement. These materials have excellent features, but their advantages come with some drawbacks as well. To make up for these weaknesses, Renewal by Andersen® designed a better frame option for windows: Fibrex® composite material.
A patented material, Fibrex is made from reclaimed wood fibers and thermoplastic polymer. This unique combination gives it the strength of real wood and the low-maintenance properties of vinyl. In fact, it has been scientifically proven to stand the test of time.
Durability Through the Years
Our first long-term durability study confirmed what we’ve been saying to our customers for years: that our window replacement products are 200-times stronger than their vinyl counterparts. We have tested original Renewal by Andersen windows in Minnesota’s scorching summers and vicious winters for 20 years and none of the windows showed signs of leakage. Thanks to the low expansion rate of Fibrex frames, their weathertight seal remained intact despite extreme temperature changes.
Easy and Smooth to Operate
Our research also revealed that Renewal by Andersen windows was as easy and as smooth to operate as when they were when installed. That’s why you can expect that our Fibrex windows will work great through the years, with minimal upkeep.
No Chipping, Cracking or Peeling
After two decades of use and exposure to harsh elements, our window replacement units didn’t show any sign of chipping, cracking or peeling. Fibrex successfully preserved its pristine condition, based on in-depth field and lab testing per ASTM E2068. The strength and resilience of our patented material is the reason we back our window frames up with robust warranty coverage.
