Why Buy Wood Windows in Victoria, B.C?
When looking for a window replacement project in Victoria, 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 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 don’t just provide a beautiful 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*.
Wood windows have been around for a long time, and there’s a reason why they’re still popular. Wood is a striking material that adds character, and can help give your home a rich and inviting look. Using wood also presents you more possibilities for styles, shapes and colors. Wood can be painted or stained to enhance your interior décor. And, if wood is already a central part of your style, choosing a wood window that complements other elements will help your home really shine.
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 protect windows from 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 inhibit weather damage.
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 adding additional heat during those Victoria summers.
Wood is also one of the only renewable building materials used today. 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 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. Call your Pella Showroom in Victoria for more information on Pella’s three lines of high-quality wood window and door products.
