Why Buy Wood?

Why Buy Wood?

For ages, wood has been a material of choice for replacement windows, giving homes a wide range of benefits including durability, energy efficiency and long-lasting beauty. If you are beginning a window replacement project in Salt Lake City and you are still on the fence 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 selections 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 a lot of people switch to wooden windows is the warmth and beauty they can create in your home. Here are a few more reasons why to buy wood windows:

Durability

Pella Windows and Doors has a selection of products that are designed to protect against the elements and provide long-lasting performance in Salt Lake City. Pella’s EnduraGuard® wood protection provides 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, plus our wood treatment, makes our wood windows long-lasting against the elements for years to come.

Environmentally Friendly

Wood is a natural insulator. No matter what season it is in Salt Lake City, wood windows can save you cash on your heating and cooling energy bills—see ENERGY STAR for more details. Wood is also a great renewable building choice. This can ease your mind knowing that wood is a renewable resource.

Beauty

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 space look warmer and inviting; and perfectly complementing wood flooring, cabinetry or interior décor that exists 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 room.
