Why Wood?

When searching for a window replacement project in Kalamazoo, you usually look for key features such as energy efficiency, how long the product will last and, of course, style. For decades, wood has been the material of choice for windows, giving homes a beautiful 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 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 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 is a striking material that adds character, and can help give your home a richer, more inviting look. Using wood also gives 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 style, choosing a wood window that complements other elements will make your house stand out.

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 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 in the winter and help prevent the sun’s heat from warming up your space during those Kalamazoo 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 extra style to extra value, it’s hard to go wrong with wood windows. They’ll provide elegance and enhance your home’s view – from the inside and out – for years. Call your Pella Showroom in Kalamazoo for more information on Pella’s three lines of high-quality wood window and door products.
