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.

"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!!"
