Consider the Merits of a Window’s Framing Material

If you’re planning to purchase new windows in Sugarland, Texas, be sure to consider the material used for the frames. By choosing the right frame material along with the right glass and installation method, you can make your home more comfortable and energy-efficient.

Frame Material Matters

Without the right frame material, heat transfer will be unregulated, which can put a strain on your cooling or heating systems and cause your energy bills to increase. Make sure the frames of the windows you’ll be getting are made of durable, energy-efficient material.

As the leading window replacement company in the area, Renewal by Andersen® of Houston knows the value of superior framing materials. That’s why we offer Fibrex®, an advanced composite material that combines the strength and insulating features of wood with the low-maintenance features of vinyl. Because of its composition, Fibrex will not rot, fade, crack or corrode. Combined with our Low-E4® glass to control light and heat, your windows will help you maintain a cozy atmosphere year-round.

Installation Matters

Here at Renewal by Andersen® of Houston, we know that the quality of an installation affects the performance of the windows. Our replacement process ensures that you get the full benefits of the windows you’ll be choosing. We’ll see to it that every window is installed to properly fit your home.

There are two installation methods we use: insert and full-frame. The first one requires that sills, jambs and other parts are in good condition. This means we’ll only replace parts of the window system, notably the frames and sashes, and leave the trim. Full-frame replacement means the whole window, sills and trim will be extracted from your wall, leaving only a rough opening. In many cases, homeowners think they need full-frame replacement even though they only need an insert project. It’s best to have your windows inspected first to determine which method is needed.

Whether you’re planning to install casement, double-hung or picture windows in Sugarland, TX, you can rely on Renewal by Andersen of Houston. For more information on Fibrex or our window installation process, give us a call today at (281) 547-6177.
