Why Materials Matter

Materials are one way that we've led the industry in innovation. Setting the industry standard with rigorous testing of product performance and quality, we ensure we're using the right materials in the right places. Andersen windows and patio doors are available in a variety of materials, including rich wood interiors, low-maintenance vinyl and innovative Fibrex® material.

Composite Windows & Doors

Composite

We developed Fibrex® material that is 2x stronger than vinyl, performs better when exposed to extreme temperatures and delivers exteriors that won't fade, flake, blister or peel. Fibrex® material is unique to Andersen and is made up of a blend of reclaimed wood fiber and thermoplastic polymer fused together.
