Wood windows are valued for natural beauty that’s easy to care for. Today’s wood windows are low maintenance and durable thanks to aluminum-clad exteriors and advanced wood protection formulas that guard against moisture. Wood is also a 100% renewable resource so it’s kind to the environment. Wood windows are typically the most expensive choice. However, they offer the design features, energy efficiency, authentic quality and enduring style that windows made from other materials just can’t match.
Wood’s strength and durability has made it the window material of choice for centuries. However, historically, homeowners in rainy or tropical climates have avoided wood windows for fear they would be difficult to care for and unable to withstand the moisture. Today’s wood windows address these worries. Pella starts with solid wood that’s kiln-dried to exacting specifications, assuring a long life and reducing the risk of cracking, splitting or swelling.
Next, we ensure moisture resistance with Pella's EnduraGuard® triple wood protection — a powerful, patented combination of three active ingredients. Together with our proven immersion-treatment method, it ensures stronger protection on every exterior wood surface of our windows. This innovation provides advanced protection against moisture, stains and decay caused by mold and mildew, as well as termite damage.
Finally, the exteriors of our wood windows are protected with tough EnduraClad® aluminum cladding — so they don’t need painting and resist fading and chalking to stay looking great for years.
Unmatched warmth and beauty
Wood creates a more inviting and attractive indoor environment, and in replacement projects, they can match the look of your home’s original windows and woodwork better than fiberglass or vinyl. It’s the most historically accurate window material, so it will preserve the authentic beauty of period homes.
You can’t beat wood for design flexibility. From getting the exact look you want to changing their color if you redecorate. Your possibilities are limitless. Wood window interiors can be painted or stained to match your décor. And windows made from Mahogany, Alder, Douglas Fir or Pine allow you to match your home’s woodwork, flooring and cabinets for a quality, seamless look.
Exceptional energy efficiency
Wood windows are an outstanding choice for lowering energy costs in all parts of the country. Wood is a natural insulator, so it helps keep your home more comfortable no matter the weather. In fact, wood insulates 1,800 times better than aluminum.
