Renewal by Andersen or Low-end Vinyl Replacement Windows for your Philadelphia Home?

This has been one the great debates for the past two decades. The real showdown here isn’t Renewal by Andersen versus low-end vinyl windows however, because Renewal by Andersen is a brand while low-end vinyl is a material used in the construction of windows. It’s really about Fibrex® versus low-end vinyl.

First, let me start by saying that even the low-end vinyl windows of the 90’s were a huge improvement over aluminum of the 70’s and 80’s. I still remember my next door neighbor getting all new aluminum siding and windows as a kid. They were the envy of the neighborhood until the very next hail storm made their house look like the top of a kid’s cheap tin drum.

Low-end vinyl windows are a much better deal. They are cheaper, easy to maintain and can last for a very long time. Unfortunately, after a few years of fading, wind damage and warping – you might not want them to last. Thay cannot be painted or re-shaped so after ten years you might want to ‘rip them out with your bare hands’. I’ve heard more than one client say nearly those exact words over the years.

That’s why Fibrex® is such a popular alternative to low-end vinyl. It does not flex and warp like low-end vinyl windows. It is not limited to the same climatic considerations and maintains its color because the color is literally part of the product – from the inside out.

While low-end vinyl was a big step up from aluminum, Fibrex® is a quantum leap past low-end vinyl. Call Renewal by Andersen of Philadelphia today, at 484-297-2519 , to see how Andersen replacement windows can benefit you.
