Why Wood?

When searching for a window replacement project in Birmingham, you probably look for key features such as energy efficiency, how long the product will last and, of course, style. For centuries, 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 an outstanding replacement window choice.

Wood windows provide more than a great view. They can be considered an investment since they help improve your energy efficiency and add resale value. In fact, U.S. News reported people 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 popular. Wood is a beautiful material that adds character, and can help give your home a more inviting and richer look. Using wood also presents you more options for styles, shapes and colors. Wood can be painted or stained to match your interior décor. If wood is already a central part of your cabinetry, flooring or furniture, choosing a wood window that complements other elements will help your home really shine.

Durability

Pella’s technology helps guard against the elements, making wood windows stronger and longer lasting without requiring a ton of maintenance. Pella’s EnduraGuard® wood protection helps guard 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 inhibit 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 adding additional heat during those Birmingham 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.
