For years, wood has been a material of choice for replacement windows, providing homes a wide variety of benefits including durability, energy efficiency and long-term beauty. If you are getting ready to start a window replacement project in Kalamazoo and you are still unclear about what windows you would like to see in your home, we would be happy to share with you why wood windows are one of our most popular replacement window selections at Pella Windows and Doors.
At Pella Windows and Doors, we understand that a concern with wood windows is the maintenance. According to Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value 2017 Report, wood window replacements return 73.0% of the project expenses upon resale. But the reason why most people switch to wooden windows is the warmth and beauty they can add to any room in your home. Here are a few more reasons why it’s valuable to think about wood windows:
Pella Windows and Doors has a selection of products that are designed to protect against the elements and provide long-term performance in Kalamazoo. Pella’s EnduraGuard® wood protection offers advanced protection against the effects of moisture, decay, stains from mold and mildew.

Wood is a natural insulator. No matter what season it is in Kalamazoo, wood windows can save you some money on your heating and cooling utility bills—see ENERGY STAR for more information. Wood is also a suitable renewable building option. This will provide you with piece of mind that wood is a renewable resource.
You’ve heard this before, but wood replacement windows are truly a timeless style. Wood windows have been around for hundreds of years providing character to your home; helping your house look warmer and inviting; and seamlessly complementing wood flooring, cabinetry or interior décor that you might already have in your home. Wood windows give you virtually endless choices for styles, colors and shapes of window frames, and they can also be painted or stained to match the feel of your space.
