Fibrex®: The Better Window Frame Alternative to Wood

Fibrex®: The Better Window Frame Alternative to Wood

December 19, 2018

At Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee, we custom-manufacture replacement windows made from Fibrex®, our exclusive frame material for windows. In this post, we discuss how this composite material is made and how it compares to wood.

How It’s Made

Fibrex is made using real wood fibers and thermoplastic polymer. This unique blend of materials gives our frames the resilience and stability of natural wood bolstered with the low-maintenance properties of vinyl.

Durable and Resilient

Since it’s made with wood fibers, this composite material naturally resists expansion and contraction. Even when exposed to high heat and low temperatures, your Fibrex-framed windows, whether regular or specialty windows, won’t crack under severe temperature changes.

What sets our composite material apart is its high resilience to water damage. Wood, while naturally sturdy, will lose its luster and start decaying when constantly exposed to rainwater or moist conditions. Thanks to its low-maintenance properties, our Fibrex material is virtually immune to water damage. All it needs is a good cleaning to stay pristine.

Better Insulation

Fibrex also has superior thermal insulating properties, which further improve its natural tolerance to sudden temperature swings. This means you can request darker frames from us without fear of increased heat gain.

When paired with our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass, our custom windows are highly energy-efficient. Your home will stay cool during summer and warmer during winter thanks to your new windows.

All these features give our Fibrex windows a longer service life compared to wood frame windows. With proper care and maintenance, your new windows will last as long as your home.

All of Renewal by Andersen’ windows, from the standard casement window to picture windows, are framed with the best window frame material ever made. Call us today at (262) 522-3034 for more information on our services. We install replacement windows in Milwaukee, WI.

Hear From Our Customers

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!!!

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.
