The material you choose for your replacement windows can have an impact on their long-term durability, longevity and energy performance. While wood and vinyl remain the top choices, composites are a game-changer on the market with their characteristics comparable with said window materials but without the weaknesses. One such example is Fibrex®, which was developed by our parent company, Andersen Corporation.
This blog post will explore the advantages of this revolutionary framing material and why it can be the perfect choice for your windows.
Advantage 1: Durability
Durability is one of the standout features of Fibrex. It’s engineered to hold up against extreme weather conditions and resist decay longer than traditional window materials. This means homeowners can have peace of mind knowing their windows will stand the test of time.
Advantage 2: Energy Efficiency
The insulation properties of Fibrex are far more superior than those of standard window materials. This translates into less heat escaping from your home during the winter and reduced heat ingress during the summer. In simple terms, with Fibrex, you’re looking at lower energy bills year-round.
Advantage 3: Low Maintenance
The low-maintenance nature of Fibrex is another advantage that can’t be overlooked. Unlike wood, which needs regular painting, or vinyl, which can warp over time, Fibrex® retains its stability and rigidity when exposed to all types of climates. This makes it a fantastic option in areas where the weather can fluctuate.
Advantage 4: Aesthetically Pleasing
Fibrex windows also lend aesthetic appeal to home exteriors and interiors. The material can be designed to mimic the grain look of wooden windows, adding a touch of sophistication and charm to your home. Whether you prefer a traditional or contemporary look, Fibrex has you covered.
Advantage 5: Environmentally Friendly
Lastly, if you’re environmentally conscious, you’ll be pleased to know that Fibrex is made from 40% reclaimed wood fiber by weight. This means that by choosing windows equipped with this framing material, you’re contributing to a greener planet. It’s a win-win situation for you and the environment.
