The frame affects the performance of your window. If it can’t withstand extreme temperature changes and constant exposure to heat and moisture, your window may not last very long. When buying replacement windows in Omaha or Bellevue, you should make sure they come with durable frames.
At Renewal by Andersen® of Omaha and Lincoln, we understand that a lot depends on the quality of your window frames. To help you get the most of your new windows, we’ve created our frames using Fibrex®, an innovative material that performs better than conventional materials used for frames.
Here are three important features of Fibrex:
Durable frames save you from a lot of headaches and costly repairs or replacements. With a unique polymer formulation, our Fibrex windows are resistant to fungal growth and decay. They have 0% weight loss from decay, whereas untreated pinewood, a common material for windows, has 50% weight loss. Furthermore, our frames won’t blister, crack, corrode, flake, pit, or rust.
Thermal conductivity and expansion are important features you should consider when buying new windows.
Fibrex frames have amazing insulating characteristics that can keep your home comfortable while helping you save on energy costs. Unlike aluminum, Fibrex prevents the cold outdoor air from cooling window areas indoors. Furthermore, it blocks heat from escaping your home. It’s 700 times better than aluminum in terms of insulating capacity.
When it comes to thermal expansion, Fibrex is more stable and predictable than vinyl. Unlike vinyl that contracts and expands a lotduring exposure to extreme temperatures, Fibrex does so slightly. The minimal movement of the material isn’t enough to result in air gaps or cause bowing and cracks on your windowpanes.
Many replacement windows usually come in square profiles. Further, some windows have very thick frames, leaving only a small space for glass. Unlike other products, windows made of Fibrex can help maintain your home’s architectural design as they can be formed into different shapes and styles. For instance, you can get a trapezoid-shaped, curved window. As Fibrex is a strong material, our windows come with narrower frames, which offer more room for glass. The frames won’t obstruct the beautiful view highlighted by your windows.
