Why Wood?

When considering a window replacement project in Cape Cod, you usually look for key features such as energy efficiency, how long the product will last and, of course, style. For years, wood has been a prominent material for windows, providing homes a classic look with natural insulation. Wood windows are known for their beauty, which is just one reason why they’re still an outstanding replacement window choice.

Wood windows offer more than excellent views. 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 popular. Wood is a beautiful material that adds character, and can help give your home a richer, more inviting look. Using wood also presents you more choices for styles, shapes and colors. Wood can be painted or stained to complement 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 help your home really shine.

Durability

Pella’s technology helps shield against the elements, making wood windows stronger and helping increase product life without requiring a ton of maintenance. Pella’s EnduraGuard® wood protection helps protect windows from 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 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 a home in the winter and help prevent the sun’s heat from warming up your space during those Cape Cod summers.

Wood is also one of the only renewable building materials frequently used. That means you don’t have to worry, knowing that when the time comes for repairs, replacements or additions down the road, wood will still be available.

From added style to added value, it’s hard to go wrong with wood windows. They’ll provide an attractive look and enhance your home’s view – from the inside and out – for years.
