What are Fibrex® Windows and What Can It Do for Me?

What are Fibrex® Windows and What Can It Do for Me?

September 05, 2014

Renewal by Andersen®, the top windows contractor in Milwaukee, has always been proud to say that the frames of our windows are made from the revolutionary material, Fibrex ®. But a lot of people are still clueless as to what this amazing material is and what its benefits are.

To better educate residents, RbA of Milwaukee gathered some of the most asked questions from our previous clients and asked our window experts to answer them:

What is Fibrex?

Fibrex is a composite material made up of 40% wood fiber and 60% percent thermoplastic polymer. The result of this mixture is a material that is stronger and more durable than any wood, retaining its stability and rigidity even on extreme temperature rises and drops. Unlike wood, Fibrex does not rot, decay, or resist fungal growth. It also won’t flake, blister, peel, pit or corrode.

Furthermore, most of the materials used in constructing this amazing product are reclaimed from the 65-acre Andersen Corporation manufacturing plant, making this material a sustainable and “green” building product.

What are the benefits of having Fibrex framed windows?

Well, aside from its durability, Fibrex can significantly help in reducing your energy consumption at home. We tend to rely on our heating and cooling devices too much on hot summer days or cold winter nights, and this can result in soaring utility bills.

As it blocks thermal transfer nearly 700 times better than aluminum, having Fibrex windows at home can help in keeping your home comfortable, whatever the weather outside is.

I love the classic look of my house! Would the Fibrex windows affect my house’s overall look?

The true beauty of Fibrex is that it’s customizable. It can be crafted to mimic the look and texture of nearly any other material, especially wood.  So even if you have a classic or a modern home design, Fibrex can still blend in.

Hear From Our Customers

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.

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.

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!!!
