Wood Replacement Windows Seattle
Windows brighten rooms, protect us and the home from the elements, give us fresh air, and enhance your house’s appearance when matched with the architecture. Windows are a necessity of your home. Wood windows in particular offer a light, strong, and attractive option to improve your home. We’re particularly focused on clad-wood windows since they offer the look of wood without the level of maintenance required with all wood windows.
Replace Your Clad-Wood Windows Seattle
Lake Washington Windows has a wide selection of wood windows in Seattle and installation expertise that you’re looking for!
Before cladded window products were introduced, homes were commonly fitted with solid wood windows.
There are problems with all wood replacement windows (sometimes called real wood windows and solid wood windows), though. All wood windows tended to:
- Be high maintenance
This led manufacturers to add an exterior cladding to protect their wood windows and improve durability.
A “clad” wood window features wooden frames on the interior side, while the exterior is protected by cladding made of aluminum, fiberglass, or vinyl. This gives the appearance of interior wood windows without the aforementioned problems with wood windows in Seattle.
Today, clad wood products remain very popular with many consumers as they offer:
- Traditional styling
- Historically-accurate features, and
- Multiple color options
Although clad-wood products still require a higher degree of maintenance, they are a great choice for homes and homeowners who are seeking classic style with modern improvements.
