Video: The Merits of Fibrex® as a Window Material

Renewal by Andersen® of Quad Cities windows are made with Fibrex®, an exclusive composite material developed by the Andersen® Corporation. Part wood fibers, part thermoplastic polymers, Fibrex isn’t the only window material on the market, but it’s perhaps the closest to perfection.

What separates it from the rest? Here’s why Fibrex creates strong, long-lasting, energy-efficient and low-maintenance windows:

It Doesn’t Decay Like Wood

Our proprietary polymer completely encases and fills each individual cell of the Fibrex wood fiber without crushing any of them. As a result, our patented material has the remarkable ability to repel moisture and resist decay. In fact, we guarantee it not to rot under normal use for a long time.

It Doesn’t Crack or Bow Like Vinyl

Fibrex is twice as strong as vinyl. Its low expansion and contraction rates allow it to remain rigid and stable with extreme changes in temperature. You can rest assured our double-hung, sliding, picture and casement windows can stay weathertight year after year.

It Doesn’t Waste Energy Like Aluminum

Compared with aluminum, Fibrex insulates 700 times better. Its superior thermal insulating properties perfectly complement the exceptional performance of any of our Low-E4® glass packages. Fibrex helps you achieve your desired indoor climate with less energy, keeping your interior warmer in winter and cooler in summer.

It Doesn’t Require Painting Like Fiberglass

Unlike fiberglass-framed products, Fibrex-made specialty, bay and bow windows never need periodic scraping and painting. They’re guaranteed not to flake, blister, pit, corrode or peel for a long period. With our advanced extrusion process, we can permanently apply a wide palette of striking colors, including black, and beat the heat.

Most importantly, Fibrex is manufactured in an environmentally responsible way. It consists of 40% reclaimed wood fibers by weight, saving nearly 90 million board feet of lumber from harvesting since the day it was developed.
