Vinyl Windows VS Andersen Replacement Windows

When shopping for replacement windows and doors one thing people don’t really look into is the material that composes their doors or windows. Whether you are replacing, remodeling, or rebuilding it is important to understand all of the building materials that are going into your space so you can make the right decisions for your project. With most replacement window and door companies, you have the choice of vinyl or wood. However, at Renewal by Andersen we provide our exclusive and patented Fibrex material. Let’s take a look at what makes Fibrex the overwhelming best choice for your replacement door and window.

    Vinyl Windows

    Vinyl was developed by scientists in the 1920’s as a safe, durable, and versatile plastic material. Vinyl is mostly composed of two chemical elements; chlorine and ethylene. For years, vinyl has been the standard material used for replacement windows. Vinyl windows are chosen over wood because they offer the two important benefits of being resistant to both scratching and rotting. This means, vinyl windows require very little upkeep and do not need to be repainted. The biggest downfall of vinyl is that it is in fact plastic. This can often result in a less than impressive appearance. Therefore, even though vinyl may be more functional and resistant to the elements, you compromise on quality and beauty.
