When it comes to choosing windows, the process can seem overwhelming: There are so many options. It can be difficult to find the best choice for your home and your wallet. Here at Gravina’s Windows and Siding, we are focused on one thing: Making sure you make the choice that will result in durable windows that look great in your home. Today, we’re going to look at the benefits of wood clad windows.
What are the Benefits of Wood Clad Windows
There are many wonderful benefits to choosing wood clad windows for your home. First, we need to define what wood clad windows are. When a window is wood clad, it means that the exterior (what you see from the outside of the home) is another material. This material is usually something durable, such as aluminum, vinyl, or fiberglass. The inside of the window (what you see from the inside of the home) is wood. Here is a brief overview of the major benefits of these types of windows:
The Look You Want: One of the main reasons to choose wood clad windows is if you want the look of wood without the drawbacks of having to maintain the wood exterior. Wood tends to suffer from contracting, warping, rotting, and expanding, due to Colorado’s extreme temperatures. With a wood clad window, however, you are able to install a more durable window, while still being able to have the rich look of a wood interior.
More Durability: Clad windows have a better resistance to the elements, because they aren’t solid wood. Water and air won’t be as likely to penetrate wood clad-aluminum, or wood clad-fiberglass windows, so they’ll last longer.
Better Energy-Efficiency: Because wood clad windows offer better protection against the elements, you’ll see a better use of energy, and your home’s heating and cooling efficiency will improve.
