Why Wood?

When looking for a window replacement project in Traverse City, you probably look for key features such as energy efficiency, how long the product will last and, of course, style. For decades, 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 great replacement window choice.

Wood windows provide more than a great view. They’re an investment, which can help improve your home’s energy efficiency and add resale value. In fact, U.S. News reported those 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’s a striking material that adds character, and can help give your home a more inviting and richer look. Using wood also provides you more possibilities for styles, shapes and colors. Wood can be painted or stained to enhance your interior décor. Plus, if wood is already a central part of your cabinetry, flooring or furniture, choosing a wood window that complements other elements will make your house stand out.

Durability

Pella’s technology helps guard against the elements, making wood windows stronger and ensuring they last longer without requiring a ton of maintenance. Pella’s EnduraGuard® wood protection helps safeguard against the effects of moisture, decay, stains from mold and mildew, and even termite damage. We also use an aluminum-cladding to protect the wood and help inhibit 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 in the winter and help prevent the sun’s heat from warming up your space during those Traverse City summers.

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

From great style to great value, it’s hard to go wrong with wood windows. They’ll provide beauty and enhance your home’s view – from the inside and out – for years. Call your Pella Showroom in Traverse City for more information on Pella’s three lines of high-quality wood window and door products.
