Why Wood?

When considering a window replacement project in Charlotte, you usually look for key features such as energy efficiency, durability and, of course, style. For years, wood has been a primary material choice for windows, giving homes a classic look with natural insulation. Wood windows are known for their beauty, which is just one reason why they’re still a great 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 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. It’s a gorgeous material that adds character, and can help give your home a rich and inviting look. Using wood also gives 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 home, choosing a wood window that complements other elements will help your home stand out from the rest.

Durability

Our 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 protect windows from 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 prevent 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 your house during the colder seasons and help prevent the sun’s heat from warming up your space during those Charlotte summers.

Wood is also one of the only renewable building materials commonly used. That means you can take comfort knowing that when the time comes for repairs, replacements or additions down the road, wood will still be available.

From great style to great value, it’s hard to go wrong with wood windows. They’ll provide beauty and enhance your home’s view – from the inside and out – for years. Call your Pella Showroom in Charlotte for more information on Pella’s three full lines of high-quality wood window and door products.
