FIBREX Composite Windows !!!! The Wave of the Future
After seeing all the issues with wood/clad windows and the lack of inherent strength with vinyl windows, the clear choice of framing material is composites.
Comparing the top 3 composites on the market, I have discovered that the Renewal by Andersen's Fibrex is the best performer.
Compared to fiberglass (which is a painted, less durable material) and cellular PVC which doesnt give all the "green" benefits, Fibrex from Andersen is the best!
The material is a combination of pulverized wood fiber along with pvc polymers which is strong, durable, decay resistant and best of all a very attractive looking window.
If you are looking at replacement windows and want the best value dollar for dollar, look for the Renewal by Andersen store in your area. I have done my homework and have had them installed for 6 years now and I dont regret it for one minute!!!
