Two different windows may look identical but perform in opposite ways. Other than the glass, the framing material is a great factor. At Renewal by Andersen® of New Mexico, we use Fibrex® to ensure long-lasting performance and energy savings. Our exclusive composite material has truly raised the bar in window performance since it entered the market in the early 1990s. Here’s why we use Fibrex for our quality windows.
Fibrex is made of 40% reclaimed wood fiber by weight, giving it its superior strength. It expands and contracts very little under extreme temperature fluctuations. Its incredible structural rigidity allows it to maintain its weathertight seal in all climates.
Unlike other popular materials, it doesn’t bow or crack over time. Even when exposed to rigorous testing, Fibrex is twice stronger than vinyl. Because of its durability, we can make our frames thinner without giving up stability. In turn, our picture windows and other designs have more glass and provide more view.
Exceptional Moisture Resistance
Fibrex is also made of 60% proprietary polymer. As a result, it can repel moisture effectively and resist rot in ways real wood windows can’t do. Its ability to prevent water damage allows it to live for years without aging. Furthermore, Fibrex can retain its attractive appearance for many years even after long exposures to damaging sunlight. We’re confident in its capacity to withstand weathering, which is why we provide powerful coverage on finishes.
Thanks to Fibrex, installing our double-hung, bay, and sliding windows can create a heat barrier for your home. Its thermal performance is on par with other outstanding insulators such as wood, vinyl, and fiberglass. Paired with our advanced low-E glass, Fibrex helps preserve your desired indoor climate while reducing your household energy use.
