For ages, wood has been a material of choice for replacement windows, offering homes a wide assortment of benefits including durability, energy efficiency and lasting beauty. If you are getting ready to start a window replacement project in Newport and you are still unclear about what windows you would like to see in your home, we would be happy to explain to 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 project expenses upon resale. But the reason why most people switch to wooden windows is the warmth and beauty they can bring to the space 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-lasting performance in Newport. Pella’s EnduraGuard® wood protection delivers 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, 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 Newport, wood windows can save you a few bucks on your heating and cooling utility costs—see ENERGY STAR for more details. Wood is also a suitable renewable building option. This can give you some piece of mind that wood is a renewable resource.
It’s been said 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 house look warmer and inviting; and flawlessly complementing wood flooring, cabinetry or interior décor that exists in your home. Wood windows give you virtually endless options for styles, colors and shapes of window frames, and they can also be painted or stained to match the feel of your home.
