low-end Vinyl may seem like the better choice because it is low maintenance. On the other hand, low-end vinyl is not a durable product; it changes shape due to weather that creates gap between your window frame and walls. Although the low-end vinyl is a good insulator, the gaps negate this quality by letting air flow outdoors.

Seeing the disadvantages of each product, Andersen Windows created its own special material called Fibrex®. This polymer combines the strength and durability of wood with the low maintenance qualities of vinyl.

Fibrex® is easy to customize for your home because you can choose which color you would like. Other materials are less durable and cannot be stained darker colors. Because Fibrex® is so durable and resistant to heat, it can handle the manufacturing process of dark coloring, giving you more options.

Fibrex® is low maintenance because it does not need to be painted or chemically treated. It comes pre-blended with the color of your choice, and it is resistant to all mold, rotting, peeling, etc. Additionally, the polymer is so strong that a thick frame is not necessary. This maximizes the glass surface area on your window, leaving you with better views of the outdoors.
