Fibrex is Renewal by Andersen’s proprietary composite window frame material. Here’s what you need to know about what Fibrex material is, what the benefits are, and how Fibrex composite material compares to natural wood. Knowing the answers to these questions can help you understand what makes Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey and New York Metro windows more effective than natural wood windows.

What Is Fibrex Composite Material?

Fibrex material is a proprietary compsite product that has the low maintenance of vinyl, but the strength and beauty of natural wood products. Fibrex material is only available from Renewal by Andersen, and is used for the frames of all their windows.

Fibrex material is made from 40 percent wood fiber (mostly reclaimed wood) and 60 percent durable thermoplastic. When combined, these two materials create a wood-like material that is stronger than natural vinyl, virtually rot-proof, and nearly maintenance-free.

How Fibrex Material Compares to Standard Wood Window Frames

One of the things that many homeowners discover when they install replacement windows from Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey and New York Metro is that Fibrex material is a lot like wood, but better.

  • Far less maintenance. Fibrex material requires none of the painting and refinishing required by natural wood products. You’ll never have to repaint or refinish your Fibrex material window frames. The only regular maintenance you can anticipate your windows needing is the occasional cleaning. Just wipe away any dust, dirt or grime, and your windows should look like new for years to come.
  • Look of wood. Fibrex material can be made to look like wood, or it can be pre-finished in one of Renewal by Andersen’s many color options. Once finished, it never needs to be painted again, unless you want to switch the color.
  • Rot resistant. Unlike real wood, which can easily rot when exposed to moisture over long periods, Fibrex material is virtually rot-proof. You’ll never have to worry that your Fibrex window frames are being affected by wet-rot or dry rot. And, because all Renewal by Andersen windows are installed by Renewal by Andersen experts, your windows should not be exposed to moisture from a leak anyway.

Is Fibrex Material Right for Your Window Frames?

If you’ve been dealing with natural wood windows for years, you may be very ready to replace your windows for something that is more durable, longer-lasting and just as attractive as wood. If this is the case, Fibrex window frames are the option for you.
