At Renewal by Andersen® of Seattle, we take pride in offering replacement windows made with Fibrex®, an innovative composite material known for its undeniable strength and low maintenance qualities.

Fibrex is a material developed by Renewal by Andersen’s parent company, Andersen Corporation, as the top choice for window frames. In fact, the company has earned over 30 patents just for manufacturing the product. Fibrex is composed of 40% reclaimed wood fibers by weight and 60% proprietary thermoplastic polymer. This unique blend of materials gives it the same toughness as natural wood but with the low-maintenance qualities of vinyl.
The Ability to Withstand Weather
Window contractors offering Fibrex replacement windows swear by the superb properties of this material. For one, its composition gives it a high tolerance to expansion and contraction, even in the face of sudden temperature changes. Because of this, you can be sure your windows will retain their shape and appearance for many years to come without deforming, rotting, fading or denting.
Another noteworthy quality of our Fibrex windows is their excellent thermal insulation. Indeed, our units can resist cold, heat and drafts. Combined with our high-performance low-E glass packages, our replacement windows will help make your interior warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. This translates into better energy efficiency in your home so you can use your HVAC unit less and thus save on utility bills.
Fibrex windows could very well be the last window units you’ll ever need for your home. For your window replacement project, choose replacements with Fibrex window frames and enjoy the lasting benefits of this strong, elegant and functional product.
