A Better Alternative to Vinyl Windows for Homeowners in Albany, Saratoga Springs, Beacon, and All Nearby Cities
Homeowners searching for replacement windows are likely to find many companies touting vinyl windows as the best option. However, a closer look at these windows reveals a few key issues that may be of concern. While vinyl windows may look solid, in most cases they actually consist of hollow sections that have been welded together. This creates bulkier frames and sashes, which are not as strong or as attractive as those made with other materials. Though vinyl is a plastic which transfers less heat than the aluminum found in many frames, the chamber walls of vinyl windows tend to be too thin to properly insulate a home without some form of additional foam filling.
Rather than worry that the vinyl replacement windows you select are lacking in some way, consider choosing Renewal by Andersen composite windows from Huff ‘N Puff. These windows have frames and sashes made from a unique material called Fibrex that was developed specially by Andersen, the nation’s top window manufacturer. Fibrex is a blend of 60% thermo polymer and 40% wood fibers, creating a material that is both more insulating and 200% stronger than vinyl. This means our new home windows have thinner frames that support 20% more glass area in the same space as vinyl windows. And like vinyl, Fibrex never requires painting or scraping, won’t rot or warp, and can endure years of exposure to the elements, making it just as easy to maintain.
In addition to being made from Fibrex, Renewal by Andersen replacement windows can incorporate a broad range of other outstanding features, including:
- Your choice of 37 different combinations of interior and exterior finishes
- Hardware in various styles and finishes
- High-Performance Low E4 glass, with the option to upgrade with a SmartSun UV-blocking coating
- Obscuring glass patterns that can provide privacy
- Attractive grilles in a variety of styles and patterns
