Why Buy Wood?

Why Buy Wood?

For years, wood has been a material of choice for replacement windows, providing homes a wide range of benefits including durability, energy efficiency and long-lasting beauty. If you are in the process of considering a window replacement project in Rochester and you are still unclear about what windows you would like to see in your home, our experts 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 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 cost of the project upon resale. But the reason why many 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 it’s valuable to think about wood windows:

Durability

Pella Windows and Doors has a selection of products that are designed to protect against the elements and provide long-term performance in Rochester. Pella’s EnduraGuard® wood protection provides advanced protection against the effects of moisture, decay, stains from mold and mildew. You also have the opportunity to use aluminum- or vinyl-cladding to go the extra mile to help protect your wood from weather damage. These options, combined with 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 Rochester, wood windows can save you some money on your heating and cooling utility bills—see ENERGY STAR for more information. Wood is also a great renewable building option. This will provide you with piece of mind that wood is a renewable resource.

Beauty

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 home look warmer and inviting; and flawlessly complementing wood flooring, cabinetry or interior décor that you might already have 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.
