Why Wood?

When considering a window replacement project in Minneapolis, 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 the material of choice for windows, providing 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 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 common. It’s a striking material that adds character, and can help give your home a richer, more inviting look. Using wood also provides 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 style, choosing a wood window that complements other elements will help your home stand out from the rest.

Durability

Pella’s technology helps shield against the elements, making wood windows stronger and helping increase product life without requiring lots 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 apply 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 coming in during those Minneapolis 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 an attractive look and enhance your home’s view – from the inside and out – for years.
