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.

"Renewal was fantastic! They kept you in the loop from ordering to installation. They informed you at every step of the process of what was happening. The installers were kind, courteous, and professional. Everything was cleaned up after the installation. It was as if they hadn't been there except to see your beautiful new windows. I highly recommend them."

"3rd time using RBA for window replacement. Again, a very positive experience, the windows are great, the installation was done right, the professionalism was apparent from start to finish. Still have existing windows to be replaced and will definitely use RBA again to do it in the future."

"Renewal by Andersen was a good experience for us in replacement of our windows. From the initial meeting with the sales representative, Leslie, through the waiting period for manufacturing, and then to the installment process, our experience was excellent! Communication is key for me and we were kept informed and updated as our windows were being ordered and manufactured. Calls to update us on the installation process were welcomed and appreciated. They know how much is too much so they don't pester you with unnecessary contact. We love our new windows!!! Did I say that already??😂 We can tell a major difference in reduced Street noise and also the temperature at our windows. Excellent company, highly recommend!!"
