3 Factors of RbA Windows: Frame, Glass, and Installation

With new technologies and innovations in the window industry today, modern replacement windows are not just about how a window can enhance your home’s curb appeal. Windows today offer more than just the aesthetics, as homeowners are now choosing what is more durable, long-lasting, and, most of all, energy-efficient.

Renewal by Andersen® of Houston, the leading expert on replacement windows in Sugar Land Texas and the surrounding areas, offers just that. We offer energy-efficient windows that will help you save money on your energy bills. But what makes our replacement windows energy-efficient?

There are three factors in a Renewal by Andersen window that contributes to our promise of energy efficiency: the frame, the glass, and, of course, our renowned installation process. Here’s a quick look at the three factors of an energy-efficient Renewal by Andersen window:


Renewal by Andersen uses a patented sustainable frame material called Fibrex®. This innovative material is made out of 40 percent wood fiber by weight and 60 percent thermoplastic polymer by weight, creating a material that combines the durability and strength of wood with the ease of maintenance of vinyl. Fibrex is proven not to rot, warp, crack, peel, and corrode. Its rigidity will stand through time and through different climate conditions, therefore providing your home with a weathertight seal for a long time. Furthermore, Fibrex blocks thermal transfer 700 times better than aluminum.


The glass is probably the most critical part of your window to look at if you are aiming for energy efficiency. Renewal by Andersen windows also feature energy-efficient glass panes that can help you reduce energy usage and costs. Our windowpanes are equipped with High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass. This special glass has coatings that are developed to minimize the amount of ultraviolet rays and infrared light that can pass through without compromising the amount of visible light transmitted. This means that it can significantly affect the overall heating, lighting, and cooling costs of a house.
