Why Buy Wood Windows in Albany, NY?

Why Wood?

When looking for a window replacement project in Albany, you likely look for key features such as energy efficiency, durability and, of course, style. For decades, wood has been the material of 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 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 common. Wood is a beautiful material that adds character, and can help give your home a rich and inviting look. Using wood also gives you more choices 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 make your house stand out.

Durability

Today’s technology helps protect against the elements, making wood windows stronger and ensuring they last longer without requiring much 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 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 Albany summers.

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