Vinyl Windows VS Renewal by Andersen Replacement Windows

Vinyl windows are a popular option for homes all over the country — and for a long time, they were good enough for homeowners in the Tucson area. Vinyl windows are low maintenance, weather resistant, and energy-efficient enough to appear in a large number of Arizona homes. But when you’re looking for style, architectural authenticity and integrity, vinyl windows still manage to come up short.

So Renewal by Andersen set out to build the perfect window, one comprised of a much better material than vinyl. That’s when Fibrex® was developed — a patented, innovative material that’s built for durability, energy efficiency, and beauty to last for years. This unique material combines the strength and aesthetic of wood with the low maintenance and durability of vinyl.
