Wood Windows: What You Should Know

Wood Windows for Your Home

Elegant and aesthetically pleasing, wood is Pella’s most customizable material. But homeowners choose classic wood windows to outfit their homes for more than just looks. These windows offer a range of benefits, from timeless beauty to modern-day energy savings.

Wood is a natural insulator, which makes wood windows highly energy efficient. When properly installed, these windows help prevent leaks and block airflow that would impact temperatures in the home, which leads to a decrease in home energy costs. Plus, Pella wood windows come with the best limited lifetime warranty for wood windows and patio doors.

Since wood is an organic material, unlike fiberglass or vinyl, wood windows will need additional weatherproofing and some occasional refinishing to keep both the exterior and interior window frames looking their best. With proper care and maintenance, wood windows are well worth the extra bit of work. In fact, learning to refinish and stain your windows is a valuable, money-saving skill for any homeowner to have.

Additional Protection: Exterior Window Cladding

Wood Windows: What You Should Know

When installing wood windows, they can be outfitted with cladding, which protects the integrity of your wood window from the outside. This material selection helps keep your window safe from severe weather and outdoor elements. This also eliminates the need for frequent exterior wood refinishing, as cladding helps preserve the stain on your wood windows. This is why exterior aluminum cladding comes standard on all Pella wood windows, in a variety of paint colours.
