Solid product with the Fibrex technology, or worth the extra $$ to go 200 or 400 series windows?

Thanks!

True. Are you familiar with the Fibrex technology? Is it a good product, or not so much?

Well, I personally wouldn't choose a product composed of wood scraps, sawdust, and vinyl scraps. But it's your choice. BTW, that info comes from Anderson, and they tout it as being a plus. Whatever.

Most composite decking has more than proven it's lack of structural integrity. And with most composite materials, there is no guarantee of its material makeup. One week it's mostly recycled plastic from milk jugs, the next it's plastic bags. Same with the wood flour and/or fibers.

If it was really required, their MSDS would have to be rewritten ever other week.

Anyone remember few years back a homeowner sued a builder who claimed the windows he put in were as good as Anderson windows , I guess they werenít , the homeowner took him to court and won , canít remember the settlement but the judge sided with the homeowner .
