Why Buy Wood?

For a long time, wood has been a material of choice for replacement windows, giving homes a wide range of benefits including durability, energy efficiency and long-term beauty. If you are in the process of considering a window replacement project in Long Island and you are still unclear about what windows you would like to see in your home, our experts would be happy to show you why wood windows are one of our most popular replacement window choices at Pella Windows and Doors.

At Pella Windows and Doors, we recognize 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 many 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:

Durability

Pella Windows and Doors has a selection of products that are designed to protect against the elements and provide long-term performance in Long Island. Pella’s EnduraGuard® wood protection offers 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 potential damage due to weather. 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 Long Island, wood windows can save you a few bucks on your heating and cooling utility bills—see ENERGY STAR for more details. Wood is also a good renewable building selection. This will provide you with piece of mind 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 providing 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 choices for styles, colors and shapes of window frames, and they can also be painted or stained to suit the feel of your home.
