Why Wood?

When looking for a window replacement project in Springfield, you probably look for key features such as energy efficiency, product life and, of course, style. For centuries, wood has been a primary material choice for windows, giving homes an elegant look with natural insulation. Wood windows are known for their beauty, which is just one reason why they’re still a wonderful replacement window choice.

Wood windows don’t just provide a beautiful view. They can be considered an investment since they help improve your energy efficiency and add resale value. In fact, U.S. News reported homeowners 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 beautiful material that adds character, and can help give your home a richer, more inviting look. Using wood also provides you more choices for styles, shapes and colors. Wood can be painted or stained to complement your interior décor. If wood is already a central part of your home, choosing a wood window that complements other elements will make your house stand out.

Durability

Today’s technology helps shield against the elements, making wood windows stronger and helping increase product life without requiring much 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 avoid 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 Springfield summers.

Wood is also one of the only renewable building materials used today. 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 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 Springfield for more information on Pella’s three lines of high-quality wood window and door products.
