Why Buy Wood?

For a long time, wood has been a material of choice for replacement windows, offering homes a wide assortment of benefits including durability, energy efficiency and lasting beauty. If you are in the process of considering a window replacement project in Albuquerque and you are still unclear about what windows you would like to see in your home, our professionals would be happy to show you why wood windows are one of our most popular replacement window choices at Pella Windows and Doors Southwest.

At Pella Windows and Doors Southwest, we understand that a concern with wood windows is the amount of maintenance that comes with it. 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 create in your home. Here are a few more reasons why it’s valuable to think about wood windows:
