Clad-Wood Windows Defined

Clad-wood windows are made of wood and include exterior cladding to cover and protect the frame. The term cladding itself means layering material over and over to create an external protective barrier. Cladding is then attached to the exterior of a wooden window frame to shield the wood from outside elements while maintaining a beautiful interior wood finish.

Comparing Clad-Wood to Vinyl and Fiberglass Windows

When compared with other window materials, clad-wood vinyl windows are a unique option. They offer significantly higher performance levels than traditional wood windows while maintaining that beautiful wood finish. 

While vinyl is a popular and affordable choice, the material doesn’t always match the aesthetics of a traditional home design. Our clad-wood windows solve this problem for homeowners who want to upgrade their traditional home windows. The same logic applies when comparing these windows to our fiberglass selection. 

Our clad-wood windows offer the traditional homeowner a durable and energy-efficient material choice that will resist rot, mold, and decay and stand the test of time without fading or losing their attractive appearance.
