The introduction of Fibrex® into the market has been one of Andersen®’s biggest innovative highlights. Unlike other window materials, its combination of wood and hints of vinyl have secured its strength and stability. This has prompted more people to utilize it, especially for home windows. In this post, window expert Renewal by Andersen® of Denver provides four reasons why you should have yours too.
1. Reliable Insulation
Fibrex has superior thermal insulating properties– vinyl, fiberglass and wood. As it is made with Andersen High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass, it enables keeping your place warm over the winter and even cool for the summer. Compared to aluminum window frames, this will help you save on your energy bills.
While it is an excellent insulator, given the special polymer formulation used in each Fibrex material, resistance is provided against the possibility of decay and fungal growth. This proves that it can be ideal as replacement windows because it never needs scraping nor painting because it won’t mold.
3. Going Green
With Fibrex, people get the insulating property of wood and the low-maintenance feature of vinyl without having any drawbacks of either. About 40% of reclaimed wood fiber is used to create this, allowing it to meet Green Seal’s science-based environmental certification standards.
It is impossible for one not to consider choosing Fibrex from their go-to window company. Unlike vinyl alone, Fibrex is twice as stable and rigid. It can be noted that the average stiffness of wood is higher but is less predictable than the material due to natural variations of wood. Moreover, because it is strong, usual frames can be made narrower, making it easier for people to customize and style their homes.
