For ages, wood has been a material of choice for replacement windows, giving homes a wide variety of benefits including durability, energy efficiency and long-term beauty. If you are in the process of considering a window replacement project in Boston and you are still unsure about what windows you would like to see in your home, our experts 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 amount of maintenance that comes with it. According to Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value 2017 Report, wood window replacements return 73.0% of the project expenses upon resale. But the reason why a lot of people switch to wooden windows is the warmth and beauty they can add to any room in your home. Here are a few more reasons why to buy 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 Boston. Pella’s EnduraGuard® wood protection provides advanced protection against the effects of moisture, decay, stains from mold and mildew. You also have the option to use aluminum- or vinyl-cladding to go the extra mile to help protect your wood from weather conditions. These options, plus our wood treatment, makes our wood windows long-lasting against the elements for years to come.
Wood is a natural insulator. It doesn’t matter what the season or weather is like in Boston, 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 great renewable building choice. This can give you some piece of mind that wood is a renewable resource.
We’ve said it before, but wood replacement windows are truly a timeless style. Wood windows have been around for hundreds of years delivering character to your home; helping your house 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 space.
