New Jersey Renewal by Andersen vs Vinyl

Call Renewal by Andersen at 1-908-325-5536 for your new window replacement and installation services in Morristown, Montclair, and Edison NJ.

Most of our competitors offer their windows and doors made from one of three basic materials:

  • Aluminum – Offer a flexible design however, they often have issues with moisture and are not very energy efficient.
  • Vinyl – Cannot be painted and is prone to changing its shape.
  • Wood – Has great insulation properties yet, are susceptible to rotting and flaking.

With most companies, there isn’t a particular overwhelmingly good choice when it comes to replacement window and patio door materials. That’s where we have broken away from the pack and have been able to provide a material that is resistant to rotting, attractive, efficient, and good to the environment. Does it sound too good to be true? It’s not. Renewal by Andersen New Jersey created and patented a polymer material we call Fibrex and here’s how it’s different.


How do our windows stand apart from vinyl windows?

Beautiful Appearance: Replacement doors and windows made from our Fibrex material will allow you to preserve the beauty of your home. Fibrex can be molded to fit any kind of window frame and sash, even curved or circular windows. Fibrex allows us to custom make our windows to fit your home rather than compromising the structural integrity of your home.

Superior Strength: Fibrex is the strongest material out there. This allows us to make our sashes and window frames more narrow. What that mean for you is we can provide you with windows with more glass increasing your natural light and unobstructed views.

Best Insulation: When you combine the Renewal by Andersen Fibrex material with our Andersen High Performance Low-E4 glass allows our replacement windows and doors to have the strongest R-Values. That means you are going to save money on your energy bills and keep your home more comfortable all year round.

Low Maintenance: If your doors or windows are made from wood or fiberglass they will definitely require regular painting and maintenance. Our Fibrex material is guaranteed to never rot, chip, or mold. That means you have doors that will retain their function and beauty for a lifetime.

    Vinyl Windows

    Vinyl is a popular option for replacement windows today and can be found in many big box, home improvement retail stores, because it is affordable to homeowners that are just trying to fix a broken or tattered looking window. Several problems present themselves when you opt for this generic construction material, though. For starters, you can’t paint it, and because they are mass produced and sold in bulk, the only color option you are likely going to have is white. This also means once direct sunlight, heat, and inclement weather takes its toll on the surface of the vinyl, there is very little you can do to restore its original clean, pre-faded appearance. Vinyl, which looks and feels like plastic is very malleable and will warp, bend, and mold over time creating pressure imbalances that can affect the energy efficiency of your window in a real way. Between the short life span of a soon downtrodden looking window and its diminishing energy cost saving abilities, the price tag of vinyl windows quickly becomes a not worthwhile purchase decision.



    Renewal by Andersen Windows

    Renewal by Andersen takes the few benefits of vinyl like paint free maintenance and improves upon its durability, insulating ability, and strength, all the while providing a plethora of colors and design options. We do it with a revolutionary material that we call Fibrex. Fibrex is a composite mixture of 40% pulverized wood fiber and 60% thermoplastic pvc polymers. This blend provides more than twice the strength that vinyl offers which resists erosion and adequately supports the weight of multiple panes of glass. In addition to the added durability, it also provides a higher level of energy efficiency, noise reduction, and dependable functionality. Feel confident tilting the sashes out for cleaning knowing that no components are fragile enough to break, even down to the locking mechanisms. Like we mentioned earlier, you never have to paint or repaint Fibrex because it doesn’t chip or peel away, and unlike vinyl, we have a number of both interior and exterior colors to customize your look. The color isn’t some cheap coating either. The Fibrex itself is made in the colors you choose, formed to your windows’ exact specifications and shipped out for installation. Don’t settle for anything less than Renewal by Andersen replacement windows. Make a real investment in the long term value of your home.
