Double-hung windows have remained the most popular window replacement style for generations thanks to their versatility, simplicity and timeless appeal. But even a classic window style can improve, and with our exclusive Fibrex® material, we have made just that happen. Here are some of the ways Fibrex makes our double-hung windows the best on the market:
Stronger and More Durable Frames: Fibrex frames have been tested to be twice as strong as vinyl frames and are on par with traditional wood frames in terms of stability and durability. Made from wood fibers and polymer, Fibrex can be extruded into slim yet strong frames, so we can build double-hung windows with bigger glass areas. The structural rigidity and stability of Fibrex makes our double-hung windows resistant to expansion and contraction due to changes in weather.
Inherent Insulation: Fibrex features inherent insulation, which means it does not require an insulated core. In addition to making the window assembly lighter, this also allows for better counterweight systems, without compromising performance. Combined with High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass and our precise installation process, our ENERGY STAR®-certified double-hung windows outclass their peers in terms of both energy savings and keeping your interior comfortable.
Minimal Maintenance Needed: Our double-hung windows are easy to clean and maintain. Like vinyl windows, all they need is a good wash and some mild cleaning solution. The factory-applied colors will never require scraping or repainting, and they are warrantied not to exhibit flaking, rusting, blistering, peeling, cracking, pitting, corrosion or rotting under normal use. Our High-Performance Low-E4 glass likewise has exterior metal oxide coatings that can reduce up to 99% of water stains when activated by sunlight.
Lasting Beauty: Renewal by Andersen double-hung windows are custom built to fit your existing wall openings. This lets us preserve the integrity and architectural beauty of your home. We offer a wide selection of exterior frame colors for any exterior color palette, while our interior finishes include stainable pine, oak and maple. You can choose different interior and exterior frame and hardware finishes for windows that reflect your personal taste and style.
