Why Wood?

When searching for a window replacement project in Washington DC, you probably look for key features such as energy efficiency, how long the product will last and, of course, style. For decades, wood has been a prominent material 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 provide more than a great view. They offer resale value and can improve your energy efficiency, making them a smart investment. 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 used. Wood is a gorgeous material that adds character, and can help give your home a richer, more inviting look. Using wood also presents you more choices for styles, shapes and colors. Wood can be painted or stained to match your interior décor. And, if wood is already a central part of your style, choosing a wood window that complements other elements will help your home stand out from the rest.

Durability

Our technology helps protect against the elements, making wood windows stronger and helping increase product life without requiring a ton of maintenance. Pella’s EnduraGuard® wood protection helps safeguard against 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 Washington DC summers.

Wood is also one of the only renewable building materials commonly used. That means you can rest easy 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 an attractive look and enhance your home’s view – from the inside and out – for years.
