Just how long your windows will last depends on the material they use. If you want your windows to provide the superior and long-term performance you expect, you should a composite window material. You’ll find the most popular of them at Renewal by Andersen®️ of Denver, one of the top window companies in the area. Our exclusive Fibrex®️ material exemplifies durability and lasting service, but how does it fare against its counterparts? We’ll find out about it today.
What Exactly is Fibrex?
Fibrex is a revolutionary composite material exclusive to Renewal by Andersen. It combines the solidity and superior insulating properties of wood with the maintenance-free value of vinyl. What’s more, 40% of the raw material by weight used to make Fibrex is clean, reclaimed wood fiber, making it an eco-friendly choice. Today, more and more homeowners are choosing Fibrex replacement windows to improve their home’s curb appeal, comfort, and energy efficiency, and keep the harsh elements at bay.
How Long Does Fibrex Last?
Fibrex is proven two times stronger than vinyl. Replacement windows made of this composite don’t chip, crack, or corrode, and will not expand or contract when exposed to extreme changes in weather and temperature. To test their longevity, Renewal by Andersen has conducted a long-term durability study. We removed ten original windows from the home of one of our clients after 20 years of use–and the results were exceptional.
We did some testing on-site and performed a more extensive one in our lab. After 20 years of exposure to extreme weather conditions, we found out our Fibrex windows are just as easy to operate as the day they were installed. They remain incredibly strong, not even displaying signs of chipping, peeling, or cracking. But that’s not the only thing that makes our Fibrex windows long-lasting. Our professional crew has ensured their high-quality installation, which plays a huge role in how your windows perform.
Other Benefits of Fibrex
Our Fibrex windows keep durable, airtight seals to prevent outside air from leaking into your home, while stopping heating and cooling energy from leaking out. When paired with our advanced High-Performance™ Low-E4®️ SmartSun™ glass, they’ll ensure that your home remains thermally comfortable all year round, minus the high energy costs. What’s more, the durability of Fibrex allows us to create windows with slimmer frames and more expansive glass, helping maximize your home’s viewing area and access to natural light.
