Renewal by Andersen’s Fibrex® Material
Renewal by Andersen of Philadelphia, PA windows and patio doors are made from our revolutionary Fibrex® composite material. Fibrex® is an Andersen-exclusive composite material designed to combine both the strength and durability of wood with the low-maintenance and easy to clean features of vinyl. Listed below are just a few reasons why Renewal by Andersen of Philadelphia’s replacement windows and patio doors are the best choice for any home in the area.
Eco-Friendly. At Renewal by Andersen of Philadelphia, we only use reclaimed, unused materials from Andersen manufacturing facilities to produce Fibrex®. In fact, Fibrex consists of 40% reused wood fibers by weight. As of 2015, our use of Fibrex has prevented the harvesting of more than 9 million board feet of lumber since it was first developed. Because our windows are constructed with Fibrex®, they offer a long product life cycle which means they will last a long time, ultimately reducing landfill waste in the process. Fibrex® material also reduces VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions because no wood preservative treatments or painting is required.
Saves You Money on Monthly Utility Bills. Renewal by Andersen’s revolutionary Fibrex® composite material insulates 700 times better than aluminum. Complementing our high-performance glass, Fibrex® contributes to the exceptional energy efficiency of our casement, bay, bow, picture, sliding, specialty and double hung windows. Expect to see noticeable utility bill reductions all year round.
Low-Maintenance. Unlike vinyl, Fibrex® doesn’t bow or crack. It stays rigid and stable even with extreme temperature fluctuations, ensuring maximum weather-tightness. Renewal by Andersen Fibrex® will not expand or contract like lesser products on the market. This low expansion and contraction rate means the prevention of leakage under normal circumstances.
Will Not Rot, Decay or Corrode. Our proprietary polymer encases and fills every individual wood fiber cell of Fibrex, allowing it to effectively repel moisture. As a result, it doesn’t rot like ordinary wood or timber. Our first, long-term durability study reveals that Fibrex can withstand 20 years of Minnesota’s brutal winters and searing summers, showing no signs of chipping and peeling. With its ability to retain its attractive finish, it eliminates the need for costly and disruptive periodic scraping and painting.
Retains Structural Integrity While Maximizing Glass Area. Fibrex® can emulate the appearance of your original windows, delivering architectural accuracy. Compared with fiberglass that looks artificial, Renewal by Andersen’s Fibrex® can be designed so our window frames and sashes reflect the shapes and lines of your old units. Our innovative extrusion process allows us to produce windows in virtually any profile, including circles, triangles and polygons. Our Philadelphia, PA window technicians can build windows with narrower frames, giving you more glass area so that you can enjoy the view from inside your home.
