3 Reasons Why You Should Choose Fibrex®

3 Reasons Why You Should Choose Fibrex®

September 12, 2014

Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee is all about providing the highest-quality replacement windows in Waukesha and surrounding areas. That’s why we only offer windows made from the revolutionary Fibrex® material. But what is Fibrex, and what makes it better than other materials?

Fibrex is a material that was designed and developed by Renewal by Andersen®. It is made with 60% vinyl and 40% reclaimed wood fiber. Because of this:

  1. Fibrex is more durable and rigid.

Wood is definitely more rigid compared with vinyl. Vinyl can visibly warp depending on the weather and the temperature. However, wood is not all warp-proof either. It has the tendency to contract on cold days and expand on hot days. Although this doesn’t have any immediate, apparent effects on the wood frame, it becomes brittle and more susceptible to corrosion over time.

Fibrex, on the other hand, can resist the tendency to warp, expand, or contract. The weakness of wood is countered by the strength of vinyl and vice versa, allowing Fibrex to stand strong in any temperature.

  1. Fibrex has quality insulation and energy efficiency properties.

One problem that warping brings is the risk of air leaks. Air leaks can affect the quality of your home’s insulation, its energy efficiency, and, consequently, your utility bills.

The durability of Fibrex frames disallows air leaks from occurring, keeping the heat in during cold days and out during hot days. This can greatly contribute in reducing the amount of energy that needs to be consumed to maintain the ideal temperature indoors.

  1. Fibrex requires very little maintenance.

Wood requires a lot of attention in terms of maintenance. If not repainted every now and then, wood can decay fast because the material cannot, on its own, resist the harsh effects brought about by contact with water.

Fibrex, on the other hand, requires little to no maintenance. It possesses the water resistance of vinyl. It does not need to be repainted from time to time. It won’t rot as quickly as wood would.

In addition, Fibrex can be crafted into a beautiful, eye-catching window frame—perfect for picture windows in Waukesha. So if you need new windows, choose Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee and enjoy the benefits of having Fibrex windows at home. Call us today to get a free estimate on your window project.

Hear From Our Customers

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.
