Fibrex®: A Cut Above the RestOctober 13, 2017
Window frames can be made of many different materials, but none can match the beauty, performance, energy efficiency, and affordability of Fibrex®. In today’s post, [company_name], your leading provider of high-quality replacement windows, explains how Fibrex sizes up against other window materials in the industry.
Aluminum vs. Fibrex
Aluminum is well known for its light weight and strength. Its poor insulating properties, however, are a major drawback. Fibrex, on the other hand, has been proven to resist heat flow 700% better than aluminum. When paired with our premier Low-E4® glass, our Fibrex windows are sure to provide excellent thermoregulation in your home, keeping you and your family comfortable.
Wood vs. Fibrex
With its inherent insulating properties, wood has long been a staple choice for many homeowners. That said, wood is highly vulnerable to moisture, which can cause it to rot. This significantly reduces its life span, increasing your repair or replacement costs. Although Fibrex is made from 40% reclaimed wood fiber, we’ve imbued it with natural moisture-repelling qualities, making it resistant to rotting. This ensures your casement, picture, or double hung windows will provide superior performance for many years.
Vinyl vs. Fibrex
Over the years, vinyl has been gaining popularity for its design versatility and affordability. The only problem is its tendency to crack, bow, or leak under rapid and severe temperature changes. When you choose Fibrex, you’ll never have to worry about this problem. Being part-polymer and part-wood, Fibrex has the same low maintenance features of vinyl, but without its mechanical problems.
Fiberglass vs. Fibrex
While a fairly new option, fiberglass has shown stellar performance when it comes to durability. That said, this material may lose points in the aesthetics department because of its high susceptibility to fading. When it comes to long-term beauty and durability, Fibrex is still the top choice. Its impermeability to heat allows your sliding windows and other units to maintain their vibrant color for an extended period.
