Why Buy Wood?

Why Buy Wood?

For years, wood has been a material of choice for replacement windows, offering homes a wide variety of benefits including durability, energy efficiency and lasting beauty. If you are in the process of considering a window replacement project in Northern Virginia and you are still on the fence about what windows you would like to see in your home, we would be happy to share with you why wood windows are one of our most popular replacement window picks at Pella Windows and Doors.

At Pella Windows and Doors, we realize that a concern with wood windows is the maintenance. According to Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value 2017 Report, wood window replacements return 73.0% of the cost of the project upon resale. But the reason why a lot of people switch to wooden windows is the warmth and beauty they can create in your home. Here are a few more reasons why it’s valuable to think about wood windows:

Durability

Pella Windows and Doors has a selection of products that are designed to protect against the elements and provide long-term performance in Northern Virginia. Pella’s EnduraGuard® wood protection offers advanced protection against the effects of moisture, decay, stains from mold and mildew. You also have the opportunity to use aluminum- or vinyl-cladding to go the extra mile to help protect your wood from potential damage due to weather. These options, plus our wood treatment, makes our wood windows long-lasting against the elements for a long time.

Environmentally Friendly

Wood is a natural insulator. No matter what season it is in Northern Virginia, wood windows can save you a few bucks on your heating and cooling utility bills—see ENERGY STAR for additional information. Wood is also a great renewable building option. This will provide you with piece of mind that wood is a renewable resource.

Beauty

It’s been said before, but wood replacement windows are truly a timeless style. Wood windows have been around for hundreds of years providing character to your home; helping your space look warmer and inviting; and seamlessly complementing wood flooring, cabinetry or interior décor that already is featured in your home. Wood windows give you virtually endless possibilities for styles, colors and shapes of window frames, and they can also be painted or stained to suit the feel of your home.
