Why Wood?

When looking for a window replacement project in North Carolina, you likely look for key features such as energy efficiency, product life and, of course, style. For years, wood has been a prominent material for windows, providing homes a beautiful 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 offer resale value and can improve your energy efficiency, making them a smart investment. 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. It’s a striking material that adds character, and can help give your home a more inviting and richer look. Using wood also gives you more options for styles, shapes and colors. Wood can be painted or stained to enhance your interior décor. And, 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

Our technology helps shield 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 apply an aluminum-cladding to protect the wood and help prevent 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 your house during the colder seasons and help prevent the sun’s heat from coming in during those North Carolina summers.

Wood is also one of the only renewable building materials frequently 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 extra style to extra 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.
