Why Buy Wood?

For years, wood has been a material of choice for replacement windows, providing homes a wide range of benefits including durability, energy efficiency and lasting beauty. If you are beginning a window replacement project in Decatur and you are still on the fence about what windows you would like to see in your home, our experts would be happy to share with you why wood windows are one of our most popular replacement window selections at Pella Windows and Doors.

At Pella Windows and Doors, we recognize 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 project expenses upon resale. But the reason why most people switch to wooden windows is the warmth and beauty they can bring to the space in your home. Here are a few more reasons why you should consider wood windows:
