Why Wood?

When searching for a window replacement project in Calgary, you likely 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, providing homes a classic 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 offer more than excellent views. They can be considered an investment since they help improve your energy efficiency and add resale value. In fact, U.S. News reported those 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 gives you more choices for styles, shapes and colors. Wood can be painted or stained to complement your interior décor. And, 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

Pella’s technology helps shield against the elements, making wood windows stronger and ensuring they last longer without requiring lots 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 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 a home in the winter and help prevent the sun’s heat from adding additional heat during those Calgary summers.

Wood is also one of the only renewable building materials used today. 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 beauty and enhance your home’s view – from the inside and out – for years.
