4 Features and Benefits of Fibrex® Frames

  1. Superior Strength – As a trusted replacement windows contractor, we stand behind our replacement windows. We can say with certainty that our Fibrex frames are stronger than traditional wood window frames; they’re even tested to be twice as strong as modern vinyl. The combination of wood fibers and polymer makes Fibrex material resistant to impact and expansion and contraction caused by temperature changes, which means a lower chance of cracking or warping.

  1. Exceptional Insulation – One of the key features of our replacement windows is its energy efficiency. Thanks to its wood fiber content, our Fibrex material window frames dramatically reduce heat transfer. Together with our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass, you get replacement windows that minimize heat loss, which reduces your indoor heating requirements and energy consumption.

  1. Low Maintenance – Fibrex material frames are easy to clean, just like vinyl frames. Plus, the window colors and finishes are factory-applied and will never require scraping and repainting for the rest of its lifespan. It’s guaranteed not to rot, decay or grow mold. All you need to maintain these frames are a sponge and a bucket of water. Our double hung windows make it even easier (and safer) to clean, thanks to its inward-tilting design.

  1. Responsibly Manufactured – Fibrex is made from wood fibers and polymer. The wood fibers are sourced from Andersen Corporation’s wood manufacturing facilities. The waste wood is then pulped, dehydrated and processed to combine with polymers. It also features low volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions, meaning less off-gassing that would otherwise contribute to indoor air pollution. Along with our parent company Andersen Corporation, we are the only window companies to receive the Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) Indoor Advantage Gold™ certification.

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.

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.
