Why Wood?

When considering a window replacement project in South Burlington, you probably look for key features such as energy efficiency, how long the product will last and, of course, style. For centuries, wood has been a primary material 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 an outstanding replacement window choice.

Wood windows offer more than excellent views. They’re an investment, which can help improve your home’s energy efficiency and add resale value. In fact, U.S. News reported homeowners 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. It’s a striking material that adds character, and can help give your home a rich and inviting look. Using wood also provides you more possibilities for styles, shapes and colors. Wood can be painted or stained to enhance 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

Today’s technology helps protect against the elements, making wood windows stronger and ensuring they last longer 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 prevent 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 your house during the colder seasons and help prevent the sun’s heat from adding additional heat during those South Burlington summers.

Wood is also one of the only renewable building materials frequently used. That means you don’t have to worry, 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.
