The Beauty and Benefits of Wood Windows
Despite the rise of modern building materials such as fiberglass, vinyl and aluminum, wood remains popular, competitive in performance and unmatched in character. Moreover, it is a renewable resource, better for the environment and fully recyclable. wood has been at the core of our windows and doors since first setting up shop in 1872. With a range of glass options, they can be designed, shaped, painted and configured in nearly any style you wish.
Its many advantages include:
- Dozens of species, possible finishes and custom colours
- Great sound and thermal insulation
- Weather resistance
- Durability and security
- Curb appeal and increased home value
Wood windows are popular in listed historic buildings as well as neighbourhoods with building codes that require a historical look. As a material, wood also offers the flexibility of being able to take a wide range of paints, stains and finishes. Vinyl, on the other hand, is more limited. Wood does tend to be in a higher price range compared to other materials which is due to two main things. First, only high quality woods are used such as mahogany, meranti, oak, and spruce. Second, they are also finished with different surface treatments to improve their weather resistance, ability to repel water and their overall look. Most of this process is done by hand, not machine. Complement your project with high-quality wood and give it a one-of-a-kind look that will be appreciated for decades to come.
