Advantages of Wood Windows

Despite certain drawbacks, wood has many advantages other than just good looks and is overall a much better material, for example:

  • Aesthetics

    As aforementioned, looks are one of the reasons many people choose wooden windows in the first place. For some, it's actually the only reason! Genuine wood gives a look and a feel that nothing else can match. After all, nothing can beat the elegant and warm looks of wood. Wood is also a winner in the looks department because no other material is as welcoming and accepting to paint like wood.

  • Insulation

    Wood provides 400 times more insulation than steel and 1,800 times more than aluminum-framed windows. In the long run, wood-framed windows could save you a lot of money since this additional insulation “bonus” will help keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Your bills will be greatly reduced, all year round.

    Additionally, wood-framed windows are excellent at stopping outdoor sounds, being again much more effective than all other materials.

  • Longevity

    Research has shown again and again that quality wood windows last much longer and have a lower whole life cost. With the proper care, wood will last a lifetime. This cannot be said for most other frames. And remember, wood windows are not prone to rust, a deciding factor for many locations especially those with high humidity levels.

  • Coefficient of Expansion

    Wood has the smallest coefficient of expansion than any other of the materials used in window production. This makes wooden windows stable and immobile and in turn, allows you to select from a wide variety of designs.

Disadvantages of Wood Windows

Disadvantages of Wood Windows
  • Need for Paint

    Wood not only embraces paint, it actually needs it. And now you will learn why. Wood was once part of a living organism. If left untreated, it will eventually rot or start to look old.

  • Insects

    Insects are probably wood’s worst enemy, especially those nasty termites. However, painting your wooden frames protects you both from humidity and insects. So, two birds with one stone!

  • Initial Cost

    Wood windows have a much higher initial cost than any of the other materials used in window production. But as it was explained before, quality and a well-maintained window will last much, much longer and will result in smaller utility bills each and every year.
