Video How Is Fibrex Made And What Sets It Apart

What do you want in a windowOf course, you want them to be beautiful, adding to the curb appeal and market value of your home. But that’s not all. Such home components should offer a lot more so Renewal by Andersen® came up with our very own material for building those frames. We call that material Fibrex®.

What Is Fibrex®?

Fibrex is the proprietary material manufactured by Renewal by Andersen for putting together window and patio door frames that work better than wood or vinyl. It’s been proven to last longer than either of those materials in any kind of weather across America.

What Makes Fibrex Special?

To understand what makes Fibrex better than most other window frame materials, or the materials used in manufacturing your French doorsyou should learn how it is made.

Andersen® Corporation, Renewal by Andersen’s parent company, has been manufacturing wood windows for over 100 years. We wanted to make use of the pieces of wood that are too small to be included in making windows so as not to let them go to waste. So, we combined those wood particles with our proprietary polymers. Fibrex is composed of 60% wood particles by weight and 40% polymer.

Before combining the two, we make sure the wood is completely devoid of moisture. Then, using our patented process, we let the two materials combine on the molecular level. The result is a wood and patio door framing material that resists moisture better than others.

We can create just about any shape or add just about any color to our window frames. This allows us to offer a host of window styles you can enjoy for a lifetime.

Fibrex has been tested to work in any weather. It will not bow or crack when exposed to the hottest summers, and it will not give in to moisture even in the wettest environments. It will remain as rigid as the day you bought your windows. Fibrex is guaranteed not to peel, fade, chip or fall victim to any of the weaknesses of wood or vinyl, making it a combination of both worlds minus all the drawbacks. That’s a lot more value for your money.

From our specialty windows to our sliding patio doors, we are confident in our Fibrex material. Renewal by Andersen of St. Louis is the window specialist you can trust. Call us today at (314) 983-9977. We can help you in St. Louis, MO, and in other surrounding areas.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
