Best Composite Windows

Explore the best composite windows, brands and models available. Find window replacement costs for each of the options and find a description of the products and links to reviews and pricing pages. While composite window frames do not make up a huge portion of the replacement or new construction market, there are a number of very solid options out there.

Okna Starmark

This Okna window has a thick frame, which makes for a strong and durable window, but also means less glass area. It is considered one of the best composite frames, but home owners with smaller window openings might prefer something with more glass. This model is comparable to a Renewal By Andersen, although the Okna often gets better reviews at a lower price.

Andersen 100 Series

The 100 Series by Andersen has a fibrex composite frame, made from a mix of extruded PVC and sawdust. Designed by Andersen windows to compete with high end vinyl replacements, it is a high quality builder's composite. Released in the Southwest in 2010, it was gradually intriduced in other areas of the country. The upper sash is a little bit narrower than the bottom. Available in a variety of sizes and colors, it is generally considered a good, solid window. Some contractors think it is somewhat overpriced for what you get. Get additional Andersen window costs.

Renewal By Andersen

RBA carries only one line of window, which is made from Fibrex, a recycled wood and vinyl composite frame. Renewal by Andersen windows are fully customizable and have a lot of hardware options and other upgradable features. They come standard with a fusion welded frame and stainless steel spacer. The performance ratings are pretty average though, with an SHGC of 0.34 and a U-factor of 0.30. For customers that upgrade to the SmartSun glass package, the U-value goes down to 0.24 and the SHGC to 0.28.

Amsco Renaissance Series

Made from a wood fiber and resin composite, the Amsco Renaissance comes in six color options. It is more expensive than Amsco's vinyl options, but still considered a builder's grade window.
