One of the biggest problems with older sliding windows is that the metal tracks tend to crack or rust. If your sliding or gliding windows have wooden frames, then the problem might be rot or distortion. We all know how annoying it gets when the windows you once trusted to glide smoothly to open somehow get stuck on the tracks, making that awful screeching noise when you try to force them to move.
The Old Solution
Older window replacement options tend to have a few solutions when faced with panels sticking to their tracks. Aluminum frames can be oiled while wood can be sanded to an almost brand new finish. But these things take time, money and effort and the need for such solutions tends to be more frequent as the windows get older.
The Fibrex® Window Frames
Fibrex® is an exclusive framing material from Renewal by Andersen that replaces traditional frame materials, while solving the most common issues that plague sliding window owners. Fibrex is a composite material made from a proprietary polymer compound strong enough to withstand years of use, without showing visible signs of aging.
Wood is a great insulator, which makes it one of the more prolific construction materials there is. Fibrex has the insulation capabilities of wood but none of its susceptibility to distortion and premature rotting. The composite also gives our Fibrex frames the durability and versatility of vinyl, ensuring a smooth sliding experience anytime, all the time.
