Factors That Separate Good Windows From Mediocre Ones

Installing new windows in your home can improve not only your home’s energy efficiency but its ventilation and curb appeal as well. To ensure a successful outcome, you need to select high-quality windows. The best way to do this is by understanding what makes a good window and what doesn’t.

In this post, Renewal by Andersen® of Austin shares the factors that can help you separate good windows from not-so-great ones.


When choosing new windows, start by considering the quality of the materials. For example, aluminum windows do not shrink or warp and are corrosion-resistant, which makes them low maintenance. PVC windows, on the other hand, are light, do not shrink or decay, and improve your home’s aesthetic appeal better than most other window types.

At Renewal by Andersen, however, we have an even better solution with our proprietary Fibrex® windows. A blend of 60% thermoplastic polymer and 40% wood fiber, Fibrex is a durable and long-lasting composite material that combines the best traits of wood and vinyl. Its stability and rigidity makes it a good fit for all climates, and it will not pit, peel, blister or corrode.


Every window should have undergone testing to see how it performs in extreme conditions after manufacturing. When you’re looking for quality double-hung or sliding windows, ask an expert how well each product you’re considering performed in these tests.

You can expect only the best performance from Renewal by Andersen windows. Our windows go through stringent ASTM testing protocols, and we have even conducted our own test to determine if they really can withstand the test of time. We removed windows we’d installed 20 years ago and tested them, finding that they were still as durable and easy to operate as they were when they were first installed, further proving that our windows are among the best in the industry.

Professional Installation

Of course, the aforementioned factors won’t matter much if your window wasn’t installed properly. Renewal by Andersen’s Signature Service guarantees nothing but swift and professional installation services. By hiring our experts, not only are your high-quality windows guaranteed to last for a long time, but you also eliminate the need to work with several companies. We own the process from start to finish, holding ourselves accountable at every stage of the project.
