Why Buy Wood?

Why Buy Wood?

For years, wood has been a material of choice for replacement windows, offering homes a wide range of benefits including durability, energy efficiency and lasting beauty. If you are beginning a window replacement project in Terre Haute and you are still unclear about what windows you would like to see in your home, our experts would be happy to explain to you why wood windows are one of our most popular replacement window choices at Pella Windows and Doors.

At Pella Windows and Doors, we recognize that a concern with wood windows is the accompanying 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 most people switch to wooden windows is the warmth and beauty they can bring to the space in your home. Here are a few more reasons why you should consider wood windows:

Durability

Pella Windows and Doors carries a variety of products that are designed to protect against the elements and provide long-term performance in Terre Haute. Pella’s EnduraGuard® wood protection offers advanced protection against the effects of moisture, decay, stains from mold and mildew. You also have the choice to use aluminum- or vinyl-cladding to go the extra mile to help protect your wood from weather damage. These options, combined with our wood treatment, makes our wood windows long-lasting against the elements for years to come.

Environmentally Friendly

Wood is a natural insulator. Regardless of the season in Terre Haute, wood windows can save you cash on your heating and cooling energy bills—see ENERGY STAR for more details. Wood is also a suitable renewable building choice. This can give you some 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 house look warmer and inviting; and flawlessly complementing wood flooring, cabinetry or interior décor that exists in your home. Wood windows give you virtually endless choices for styles, colors and shapes of window frames, and they can also be painted or stained to fit the feel of your room.
