Why Wood?

When looking for a window replacement project in Des Moines, you probably look for key features such as energy efficiency, how long the product will last 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 an outstanding replacement window choice.

Wood windows don’t just provide a beautiful view. They’re an investment, which can help improve your home’s 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’s a gorgeous material that adds character, and can help give your home a more inviting and richer look. Using wood also provides 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 make your house stand out.

Durability

Today’s technology helps guard against the elements, making wood windows stronger and longer lasting without requiring lots of 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 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 Des Moines summers.

Wood is also one of the only renewable building materials frequently used. 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 added style to added value, it’s hard to go wrong with wood windows. They’ll provide an attractive look and enhance your home’s view – from the inside and out – for years.
