Why Buy Wood?

For ages, wood has been a material of choice for replacement windows, offering homes a wide assortment of benefits including durability, energy efficiency and long-term beauty. If you are in the process of considering a window replacement project in Eau Claire and you are still unsure about what windows you would like to see in your home, we would be happy to show you why wood windows are one of our most popular replacement window selections at Pella Windows and Doors.

At Pella Windows and Doors, we realize that a concern with wood windows is the maintenance. According to Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value 2017 Report, wood window replacements return 73.0% of the cost of the project upon resale. But the reason why a lot of people switch to wooden windows is the warmth and beauty they can add to any room in your home. Here are a few more reasons why to buy wood windows:

Durability

These options, plus our wood treatment, makes our wood windows long-lasting against the elements for a long time.

Wood windows have been around for hundreds of years providing character to your home; helping your house look warmer and inviting; and seamlessly complementing wood flooring, cabinetry or interior décor that already is featured in your home.
