Why Wood?

When looking for a window replacement project in Champaign, you usually look for key features such as energy efficiency, product life 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 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 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 popular. Wood is a beautiful material that adds character, and can help give your home a more inviting and richer 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 protect against the elements, making wood windows stronger and helping increase product life without requiring much 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 apply a coat of 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 a home in the winter and help prevent the sun’s heat from coming in during those Champaign 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 beauty and enhance your home’s view – from the inside and out – for years. Call your Pella Showroom in Champaign for more information on Pella’s three lines of high-quality wood window and door products.
