Fibrex® Answers Warping Problems in Wood and Vinyl Windows

One of the biggest problems that many windows and doors have is warping. There are many factors that can cause this issue, and they’re all different depending on the material of your windows and doors. In the worst cases, warping can alter the shape and size of your windows and doors so much that it can actually affect their operation.

Fibrex Answers Warping Problems In Wood And Vinyl Windows

It’s important to understand the most common causes of warping to better protect your home against their harmful effects.

Wooden Windows

Wood is one of the most used materials in any home remodeling project. Unfortunately, wood is also naturally porous. Most wooden products are sealed with a protective coating to prevent moisture from being absorbed into the material. Over time, however, this coat can fade and weaken, which can cause wooden windows and doors to absorb moisture and swell, warping their shape and affecting their function.

Vinyl Windows

When it comes to durability, vinyl ranks higher than wood and is actually resistant to swelling problems. Its weakness, however, is heat. High-quality vinyl windows can withstand years of exposure to changing temperatures, but they can still be prone to warping under extreme conditions. This can lead to permanent damage that may require premature window replacement to resolve.

"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!"
