Why Wood?

When searching for a window replacement project in Northern Virginia, you likely look for key features such as energy efficiency, product life and, of course, style. For years, wood has been the material of choice for windows, giving homes an elegant look with natural insulation. Wood windows are known for their beauty, which is just one reason why they’re still a wonderful replacement window choice.

Wood windows provide more than a great view. They offer resale value and can improve your energy efficiency, making them a smart investment. In fact, U.S. News reported people who perform a wood window replacement recoup an average of 77 percent of the project’s cost when they sell the home*.

Beauty

Wood windows have been around for a long time, and there’s a reason why they’re still common. Wood is a striking material that adds character, and can help give your home a rich and inviting look. Using wood also presents you more possibilities for styles, shapes and colors. Wood can be painted or stained to complement your interior décor. And, if wood is already a central part of your home, choosing a wood window that complements other elements will make your house stand out.

Durability

Pella’s technology helps guard against the elements, making wood windows stronger and helping increase product life without requiring lots of maintenance. Pella’s EnduraGuard® wood protection helps protect windows from the effects of moisture, decay, stains from mold and mildew, and even termite damage. We also apply a coat of aluminum-cladding to protect the wood and help inhibit weather damage.

Environmentally Friendly

Wood windows are also some of the most energy efficient windows available. Wood offers natural insulation, so it’ll help keep warm air inside in the winter and help prevent the sun’s heat from adding additional heat during those Northern Virginia summers.

Wood is also one of the only renewable building materials commonly used. That means you can rest easy knowing that when the time comes for repairs, replacements or additions down the road, wood will still be available.

From added style to added value, it’s hard to go wrong with wood windows. They’ll provide an attractive look and enhance your home’s view – from the inside and out – for years.
