If you’ve planned to get home replacement windows, it’s likely that you have come across recommendations about Fibrex®. Unlike other window materials, its combination of wood and vinyl touches has secured its strength and stability. Given that it’s a complex material, most homeowners are still curious about what it has to offer. Here, we’ll answer some of the most frequently asked questions about Fibrex.
What Is Fibrex?
Fibrex is a material made through a combination of wood fiber and thermoplastic polymer that provides the durability of wood and vinyl’s low-maintenance features. These components allow resisting, bowing, cracking, and decay.
What Makes Fibrex Special?
It is known to have superior thermal insulating properties– vinyl, fiberglass, and wood. It allows keeping your place warm during winter and cool when it’s sweltering outside as it is designed with Andersen High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass. With this material, people get the insulating property of wood and the low-maintenance feature of vinyl without having any drawbacks of both wood or vinyl. Moreover, compared to the usual aluminum window frames, this will help you save a lot on utility bills.
Is Fibrex Available for All Window Styles?
Yes. With its unique combination of materials and strength, Fibrex can be manufactured into all types and designs of windows. It can also be used for specialty and curved windows, unlike fiberglass that only allows straight lines for a casement window replacement for example.
