For a long time, wood has been a material of choice for replacement windows, providing homes a wide assortment of benefits including durability, energy efficiency and long-lasting beauty. If you are getting ready to start a window replacement project in Traverse City and you are still unclear about what windows you would like to see in your home, our professionals would be happy to show you why wood windows are one of our most popular replacement window picks at Pella Windows and Doors.
At Pella Windows and Doors, we recognize 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 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:
