Why Buy Wood?

For years, wood has been a material of choice for replacement windows, providing homes a wide variety of benefits including durability, energy efficiency and lasting beauty. If you are getting ready to start a window replacement project in Calgary and you are still unsure about what windows you would like to see in your home, our professionals would be happy to explain to you why wood windows are one of our most popular replacement window choices 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 many 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 to buy wood windows:
