Fibertec fiberglass Wood Clad fixed windows are built with the same features as the standard fixed window series. Our Wood Clad window series offers the best of both worlds – the carefree and durability aspects of a fiberglass window frame, plus the beauty of a real stainable oak or maple wood interior. We recommend that the wood be treated immediately after installation in order to maintain its beauty.Once installed in your home, Fibertec windows will never warp, twist, rot, shrink or dent.
