Wood polymer composite fenestration products are next-generation composites that offer slimmer sightlines, architecturally correct design, and co-extruded pigment to meet the high demand for contemporary, sustainable, and durable windows and patio doors. This course will compare wood polymer composite to alternative materials and will discuss the performance benefits of composite windows and doors, including thermal and energy efficiency, water resistance, and recyclability. The course will also cover style, glazing, and finish options, as well as maintenance and installation considerations.
