Pella Impervia Windows vs. Renewal By Andersen Fibrex Windows
I need some advise in an area I know very little about..window replacement. I live in Houston, Texas. Our house is 19 years old, has aluminum windows and they need replacing. The main concern for us is mitigating the heat/humidity of the long Texas summers. I have tried to research things and two options appear to be the best for us..Impervia by Pella (fiberglass) and Fibrex by Renewal by Andersen (composite). Both companies are highly rated and their prices reflect that. Consumer Reports has no rating for Fibrex that I can find so that limits me on getting a clear reason to choose one over the other. Can anyone help me on this?
Whatever you get make sure you get the hurricane resistant glass. Not only will it minimize storm damage but make it nearly impossible for criminals to break in. In fact no need for the 3M or Uline 4 mil security film.
