Why Fibrex® Is Ideal for Your Window Frames

One of the reasons homeowners turn to Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois is our superior replacement windows. Each one features exclusive Fibrex® frames that combine the best properties of beautiful, energy-efficient wood and low-maintenance vinyl. Here’s how Fibrex compares to other materials on the market:

 Window Frames

Superior Durability

The classic beauty and natural insulating properties of wood make it a favorite among homeowners. Without the proper chemical treatments, however, it can be susceptible to moisture and insect damage. Fibrex can offer you the same strength, insulation and stability without the typical problems associated with wood. This means our Fibrex frames are the ideal choice for your windows even in the most extreme weather conditions. They are guaranteed to not crack, pit or corrode for years.

Prefer a bay window for your replacement? Thanks to Fibrex we can offer windows in a variety of sizes and shapes to complement different home styles. Its excellent strength also allows us to create windows with narrower frames and broad glass spaces, giving you more sunlight and expansive views.

Extremely Low-Maintenance

Windows contribute to your home’s curb appeal. To keep their beauty and condition intact, you would need to provide them with the necessary care and maintenance that the framing material requires, resulting in additional expenses. Our Fibrex frames have the same low-maintenance properties of vinyl, allowing them to retain their appearance despite years exposure to the elements.

Excellent Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency is becoming a great concern among homeowners, especially during summer. Our Fibrex frames, paired with our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass, can help boost your home’s comfort and efficiency. You can also invest in our highly energy-efficient styles like casement or double hung windows to make the most of your replacement. They can help reduce your need for interior heating, leading to lower energy bills.

"I would recommend RBA of Central Illinois for QUALITY windows and doors. Compared to our old cheap, thin vinyl windows, Andersen blows them away. You can easily tell by how well the sliding doors fit and close, and how heavy duty they are. We also cannot hear the wind rushing through the house in inclement weather anymore! And the black window frames we went with are amazing to look at. Aaron, Al, Darrell, and Cory all were professional and went all out to finish the job, given the weather they had to deal with. I would definitely recommend. They were also on top of communicating with me given the weather delays, and what I could expect for them coming out. Five stars!"
