Wood windows have an unmistakably beautiful appearance, but there’s more negative features to them than meets the eye. While wood is one of the best natural insulators available, and it provides an unmistakably gorgeous aesthetic, don’t let these redeeming qualities fool you. Wood is also highly susceptible to damage from Mother Nature. With time, wood can splinter, rot, and even decay. Plus, with significant expansion and contraction due to varying temperatures and humidity levels, these windows can even warp, making for a quite unsightly façade for your home, not to mention a decrease in performance.
On the other hand, Renewal by Andersen® replacement windows for your home in Austin, Round Rock, Georgetown, or any other Texas community offer what wood windows cannot. Renewal by Andersen® windows are constructed with a composite Fibrex® frame that nearly matches the insulation, energy efficiency, and overall performance of wood, while expanding and contracting only marginally to the extent that wood does. What’s more, Fibrex® is engineered to provide a real wood grain appearance, allowing you to have windows that look like wood without any of the drawbacks.
If you’d like to learn more about the windows from Renewal by Andersen® before making a multi-thousand-dollar mistake on wood or vinyl windows, please contact us today. We also invite you to visit our showroom in Austin to view some of our windows in person and to see the difference that Fibrex® technology makes.
