Wood windows add warmth, elegance
Wood windows can be the right choice for homeowners who want to retain the architectural integrity of a period home. Out-performing their forerunners, modern windows and frames offer energy-efficient glazing, sun-blocking tints and insulation layers with gas fills. Choosing low-e glass can cut energy costs without sacrificing appearance. A broad range of styles includes casement, awning, double-hung, sliding, picture windows, hoppers, tilt and turn, bay and bow. Specialty shapes and sizes, such as inswings, arched, radius and French--with single or multiple lites--round out the options.
Popular materials include mahogany, oak, maple, ash, walnut, beech and even teak. Select from beautiful hardwoods and warm hues to durable, tight-grain patterns that hold up to extreme and changing weather conditions. Wood may not be as durable as vinyl replacement windows, but when quality, value and authenticity are important to you, it's tough to settle for anything less.
