For years, wood has been a material of choice for replacement windows, offering homes a wide variety of benefits including durability, energy efficiency and long-lasting beauty. If you are beginning a window replacement project in Westerly and you are still unsure about what windows you would like to see in your home, we would be happy to show 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 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 many 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:
Pella Windows and Doors has a selection of products that are designed to protect against the elements and provide long-term performance in Westerly. 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 conditions. These options, combined with our wood treatment, makes our wood windows long-lasting against the elements for many years.
Wood is a natural insulator. It doesn’t matter what the season or weather is like in Westerly, wood windows can save you a few bucks on your heating and cooling energy bills—see ENERGY STAR for more information. Wood is also a good renewable building option. This can give you some piece of mind that wood is a renewable resource.
You’ve heard this before, but wood replacement windows are truly a timeless style. Wood windows have been around for hundreds of years adding character to your home; helping your home 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 choices for styles, colors and shapes of window frames, and they can also be painted or stained to fit the feel of your space.
