Why Wood?

When considering a window replacement project in South Portland, you likely look for key features such as energy efficiency, how long the product will last and, of course, style. For centuries, wood has been a prominent material for windows, offering homes an elegant look with natural insulation. Wood windows are known for their beauty, which is just one reason why they’re still a wonderful replacement window choice.

Wood windows don’t just provide a beautiful view. They’re an investment, which can help improve your home’s energy efficiency and add resale value. In fact, U.S. News reported people 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. Wood is a gorgeous material that adds character, and can help give your home a richer, more inviting look. Using wood also presents you more options 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 style, choosing a wood window that complements other elements will make your house stand out.

Durability

Today’s technology helps shield against the elements, making wood windows stronger and longer lasting without requiring much maintenance. Pella’s EnduraGuard® wood protection helps guard against the effects of moisture, decay, stains from mold and mildew, and even termite damage. We also apply an 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 a home in the winter and help prevent the sun’s heat from coming in during those South Portland summers.

Wood is also one of the only renewable building materials commonly used. That means you can rest easy knowing that when the time comes for repairs, replacements or additions down the road, wood will still be available.

From extra style to extra value, it’s hard to go wrong with wood windows. They’ll provide elegance and enhance your home’s view – from the inside and out – for years.
