You need to consider several factors when replacing old and worn-out windows so you can select the right replacements for your home. One of the things that can help you determine the best window choice is the framing material.

If you’re having a hard time choosing the right windows, professionals on replacement windows in Milwaukee like us at Renewal by Andersen® can help you. Aside from the glass, the framing of your windows plays a part in keeping your home energy-efficient. According to Remodeling magazine, the frames provide about 10% to 30% of a windows’ capability to withstand the weather. If the framing material gets damaged easily, you may not fully benefit from the insulation provided by the glazing.

Aluminum, wood, and vinyl are common materials used for window frames. Your selection may affect how your replacement windows are going to perform. While these options have their own sets of advantages, Renewal by Andersen offers a framing material that outshines and outperforms all the rest – Fibrex®.

Fibrex is an advanced composite material that is made up of reclaimed wood fiber. What makes it unique and better than other materials is that it combined the low-maintenance quality of vinyl and the durability of wood, giving you a framing material that you can rely on for years and regardless of the season. It helps ensure that your home will stay protected from various weather conditions and can stay properly insulated for your comfort. As it is designed never to rot, fade, pit, or corrode, your windows are going to look beautiful and eye-catching for a long time.

If you’re planning to install a new double hung, picture, or casement window in Milwaukee, make sure the frame is made from durable materials, like Fibrex. For more information on framing materials or our windows, call Renewal by Andersen of Milwaukee today.

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.
