Fibrex Replacement Windows vs. Low-End Vinyl

Thinking about replacing your windows with vinyl? Many San Diego homeowners turn to vinyl windows because they offer more affordability, durability, weather-resistance, and energy efficiency than wood. But despite its popularity, vinyl isn’t perfect. When it comes to style and architectural authenticity, vinyl falls short.

That’s why Renewal by Andersen uses Fibrex®, a material developed and patented by Andersen, and used exclusively by Renewal by Andersen. Fibrex was engineered specifically to improve upon the qualities of vinyl and wood — resulting in a material that is beautiful, energy efficient, durable, eco-friendly, and requires no maintenance. And because Fibrex is available in a variety of different styles and finishes, you can easily find a customized combination that will fit perfectly into your home in San Diego — something that vinyl just can’t accomplish.



As you learn about Renewal by Andersen Fibrex windows, you’ll find they’re equal – and often superior – to low-end vinyl windows. Here’s a quick comparison:
