MERITS OF WINDOW FRAMING MATERIAL AND INSTALLATION METHOD

When shopping for windows, remember that the frame is essential in any window unit. There are many materials used for it, such as wood, vinyl, and aluminum. One that is popular among many homeowners today is Fibrex®, a patented composite material from Renewal by Andersen®.

Fibrex

This frame is particularly popular because of its durability. It doesn’t crack, corrode, pit, or rot. Moreover, it has excellent insulating properties that limit heat transfer both in summer and in winter.

Due to its low thermal expansion rate, Fibrex performs better than other materials in any season regardless of the temperature in your area. Unlike vinyl, Fibrex exp ands or contracts very little.

These qualities of Fibrex are contributing factors to the energy efficiency of Renewal by Andersen windows.

Installation

Proper installation is vital in the performance of your windows. An in-home consultation is recommended before you purchase replacements so a window expert can help you choose a fitting selection for your home.

Each home structure is unique and has different requirements and every window installation requires the technical knowhow and judgment of an expert.

There are two installation methods: insert and full frame replacement. The method applicable for your windows installation in St. Charles MO is relative to the current condition of your window cases.

Insert Window

This technique is applicable when your previous window frame and sill have a square profile, solid, and still in good condition. Trim and casing must remain in its place during the entire installation procedure. The current construction must also allow usage of insert, while maintaining the structural integrity of the window.

Full Frame Window

This procedure is suitable when your existing window frame couldn’t accommodate an insert replacement and it incurred damage that is no longer repairable. Full frame is also a fitting choice if you would like to boost the energy efficiency of your home.

To make the most out of your home improvement investment, opt for St. Charles Missouri energy efficient windows. But importantly, have them professionally installed to perform effectively. Consult the experts from Renewal by Andersen of St. Louis for a suitable selection for your house.

"Everyone I worked with from setting up the initial appointment to the salesman to the installers to everyone who checked on us and kept us updated on the progress of the windows was courteous, professional, and responsive. There’s always someone who is willing to answer your question without jumping through hoops which is rare these days! The installers were on time, did a beautiful job, cleaned up the space better than I expected, and even helped me with some blinds I couldn’t remove and fixed my squeaky front door! I’ve already recommended Renewal by Anderson to friends!"
