Why Buy Wood?

For a long time, wood has been a material of choice for replacement windows, offering homes a wide variety of benefits including durability, energy efficiency and lasting beauty. If you are in the process of considering a window replacement project in Indianapolis and you are still unsure about what windows you would like to see in your home, our professionals would be happy to share with you why wood windows are one of our most popular replacement window picks at McComb Window & Door.

At McComb Window & Door, we understand that a concern with wood windows is the accompanying maintenance. According to Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value 2017 Report, wood window replacements return 73.0% of the project costs upon resale. But the reason why most 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 you should consider wood windows:

Durability

McComb Window & Door sells products that are designed to protect against the elements and provide long-lasting performance in Indianapolis. Pella’s EnduraGuard® wood protection delivers advanced protection against the effects of moisture, decay, stains from mold and mildew. You also have the choice to use aluminum- or vinyl-cladding to go the extra mile to help protect your wood from weather damage. These options, when partnered with our wood treatment, makes our wood windows long-lasting against the elements for years to come.

Environmentally Friendly

Wood is a natural insulator. No matter what season it is in Indianapolis, wood windows can save you some money on your heating and cooling utility costs—see ENERGY STAR for additional information. Wood is also a good renewable building choice. This can give you some piece of mind that wood is a renewable resource.

Beauty

We’ve said it before, but wood replacement windows are truly a timeless style. Wood windows have been around for hundreds of years adding character to your home; helping your space look warmer and inviting; and flawlessly complementing wood flooring, cabinetry or interior décor that already is featured in your home. Wood windows give you virtually endless options for styles, colors and shapes of window frames, and they can also be painted or stained to suit the feel of your home.
