3 Reasons To Invest In Wooden Windows

Installing new window fixtures is a smart investment. Even though it is a relatively expensive project, it is actually quite cost-effective when you consider the fact that it upgrades the inside and outside of your home at the same time. You might notice that most modern windows are built with synthetic materials like vinyl, fiberglass, PVC, and aluminum. These products do have certain advantages, but many homeowners prefer the traditional look of real wood. There are still many manufactures that produce stylish, durable, and state-of-the-art wooden fixtures in all of the most modern trends. This article explains why wooden fixtures are still a great option for residential construction.

Wood Maintenance Is Manageable

Many people will tell you that wooden windows require a lot of maintenance, but this is not necessarily true. Products like vinyl and fiberglass require virtually no maintenance at all. So, wood might require more maintenance than these synthetic materials, but it is still not that time consuming. If you plan on living in your home for 30 years, you might need to refinish, stain or repaint your windows once or twice over their lifetime. This project does require some serious construction because you need to remove the existing finish. It will probably take up a couple days, but it is not that inconvenient if you consider you only have to do this once or twice every 30 years or so. It should also be noted that if you take care of your windows, clean them on a regular basis, and fix any termite or water damage as soon as you notice it, you might never need to fully refinish your windows.

Wood Style is More Authentic

Most people will pick wood over synthetic options simply because they prefer the way it looks. In fact, many synthetic products are made with fake wood prints, but if you really want the look of raw wood with all the natural grains and knots, you should definitely go for the real thing. It looks more authentic and blends in better with your existing wooden design elements. For instance, wooden windows can match your molding, furniture, flooring and roof line.

Wood is Easier to Customize and Change

It is also important to note that wood can be repainted or stained much easier then products like vinyl or fiberglass. So, if you do decide to change the color scheme on the inside or outside of your home, you can also repaint your wood to match.
