Even with advanced technology offering new and improved window materials, traditional wood is still an amazing material for your windows. Not only does wood look amazing, it is also a sustainable material offering excellent thermal insulation, outstanding durability, low maintenance, and the option of easily being repaired. Most importantly, wood windows provide versatility and can add warmth to your home. The main drawback to wood windows is that wood can be pricey, depending on the wood species used.
Wood Window Benefits:
- Many wood-window manufacturers offer cladding, an exterior covering that eliminates the need to paint the exterior of wooden windows.
- Wood windows enhance your home’s visual appeal, adding warmth and richness.
- Provides excellent insulation.
- Wood is unaffected by temperature extremes.
- Wood is available in numerous different species to suit your needs.
When wood windows are required, Siding & Windows Group prefers to use Marvin, but we also use products from Pella and Andersen:
Unparalleled design flexibility, thanks to endless customization options:
Start with one of Marvin’s thousands of standard windows and doors. Then choose from 7 interior wood specie options. Nineteen clad colors. Multiple glass and hardware options. And limitless divided lite patterns. Or start with an idea and we’ll bring it to life as a one-of-a-kind window or door.
Engineered to perform over time—they stand behind their products and use the highest quality materials:
Marvin windows and doors are built to last because they’re built to resist the most extreme elements. Each window is crafted with real wood throughout. Marvin’s exteriors feature extruded aluminum cladding that is substantially stronger than typical roll-form aluminum, with paint finishes that keep colors strong and true as it resists chalking and fading. Together they exceed the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) specification with commercial strength and durability.
