Vinyl vs. Wood Windows - What's Right for My Springfield Home?

Vinyl and wood windows are among the most popular window materials today. Besides analyzing the pros and cons, how do you know which window material is good for your home?

Choosing frame materials can be determined by your needs, like following a precise budget or adding an attractive look to your residence.

Benefits of Vinyl Windows

Our sensibly priced vinyl replacement windows include detailed technique and energy efficiency in a low-maintenance package, giving you satisfaction for years.

Low Maintenance

Vinyl windows don’t need much maintenance, other than cleaning with soap and water. You won’t be required to paint or stain your windows every few years. In fact, you’ll never need to stain them.

Energy Efficient

Vinyl is a fantastic insulator and stops heat and cold.

Depending on the Pella product line you select, you can personalize energy efficiency with:

  • Glass options, such as dual- or triple-pane glass with Low-E and argon
  • ENERGY STAR®-rated models that can help you save on energy bills
  • Vinyl frame foam insulation

Affordable

Vinyl is often the most affordable alternative when you need to have your windows replaced.

Customizable

There’s more to vinyl than only white.

Develop your own style with Pella’s dual-color frames. Use a distinct color, like black or gray, to complement your home’s outside. Our DuraColor™ exterior finishes exceed industry standards for fade resistance1 to help provide long-lasting color.

Ask your Pella professional how you can further customize your windows with:

  • Grilles
  • Hardware
  • Between-the-glass shades and blinds

Durable

We design and test our vinyl windows to resist exposure to sunlight, humidity and temperatures.

Benefits of Wood Windows

Our premium, high-performing styles give your home a cozy feeling that only natural wood can provide.

Low Maintenance

Some wood windows need exterior painting and sealing every few years. Avoid those duties with our exclusive EnduraClad® finishes, which have interior wood window frames. These aluminum-clad exteriors resist fading and look good for years.

Highly Customizable

From material to grille patterns to color, wood windows are very customizable. You can select from contemporary and traditional options.

With Pella, you can pick from woods like pine, Douglas fir and mahogany. As well as a wide variety of stains, paints and hardware to enhance your home.

Depending on the product line, you can also add:

  • Insynctive® technology
  • Integrated blinds and shades

Historical Accuracy

If you live in a historic home, wood windows can match timeless style while adding contemporary energy efficiency.

Long Lasting

Wood is a durable material for windows. At Pella, we stand behind our wood windows with one of the best limited lifetime warranties in the industry.2

Energy Efficient

Wood is a great insulator and blocks heat and cold.

Depending on the Pella product line you want, you can customize energy efficiency with:

  • Glass options, such as dual- or triple-pane glass with Low-E and argon
  • ENERGY STAR®-rated options that can help you save on energy bills
