Wood windows have long been a top choice in the world of residential
windows. They are made from a variety of wood types
including pine, fir, redwood, cedar, mahogany, and cypress to
name a few. Since wood windows have better insulation
properties than metal, they are touted as a highly energy
efficient window. Further, since wood is easily
manipulated in terms of style and decor, wood windows are
popular for custom window jobs that require unique design
specifications. Wood windows can be painted to match any
exterior color of the home. One drawback, however, is that
wood windows need to be painted regularly to avoid undesirable
paint chipping and exposure of the wood to the elements which
can lead to rot. For this reason, if you are looking for a
window that requires minimal maintenance at a lower cost, a
better option may be a vinyl window.
Alternatively, many manufacturers offer the best of both worlds
with a clad window that is made
of both vinyl and wood. Regardless, if a wood window is
properly cared for, it can be made to last for hundreds of years.
