Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about this innovative composite material.
What Is Fibrex?
Fibrex is a unique material that features the warmth and durability of wood with the low-maintenance features of vinyl. This material is made from a combination of wood fiber and thermoplastic polymer. It makes a great window material for residential windows as it withstands bowing, cracking and rot. Also, you never have to scrape or repaint. Fibrex is warranted not to blister, peel, crack, rot, flake, rust, pit, or corrode
Is Fibrex Available for All Window Styles?
Because of its unique combination of materials and strength, Fibrex can be manufactured into all types of windows. It can also be used for specialty and curved windows, unlike fiberglass that only allows straight lines.
How Can Fibrex Help You Save on Your Energy Bills?
Certified by ENERGY STAR®, our Fibrex material frames have inherent insulation, which means it does not require a foam or similarly insulating core. Combined with our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass, Fibrex prevents heat from leaking between your indoor and outdoor spaces, which can help reduce your home’s indoor heating and cooling requirements, leading to energy savings.
Why Should You Go for Fibrex®?
A window company recommends Fibrex due to the hefty benefits it offers. When combined with Renewal by Andersen®’s High-Performance Low-E4 glass, Fibrex offers superior energy efficiency and insulating properties. This material is so strong that it can be made into narrower frames and in virtually all shapes and sizes.
Is Fibrex Protected By Warranties?
The warranty that backs a product says a lot about its reliability, strength and longevity. All Renewal by Andersen windows is backed with one of the most comprehensive warranties in the industry. Our windows come with a 20/2/10 Limited Warranty. It includes a 20-year limited warranty for Fibrex and glass, a 10-year limited warranty for the frame, sash, and locking mechanism, and a two-year limited warranty on installation.
Is Fibrex Eco-Friendly?
Fibrex is manufactured with the environment in mind. It contains at least 40% of wood fibers reclaimed from wood trimmings. As we have control over the supply chain and manufacturing process we can maintain a minimal carbon footprint. Lastly, our Fibrex is more sustainable as its expected life span is more than 35 years and minimal needed upkeep.
How Much Does It Cost?
Naturally, consumers want to know what they are going to pay for the added benefits of an Earth-friendly, high-efficiency window. Fibrex windows are comparable to high-end vinyl windows. However, they are built to last longer than vinyl windows, so they provide more value to the consumer in the long run.
