Clad Replacement Windows

Clad replacement windows are a great option for buyers who are looking for a durable, low maintenance window. Clad windows are usually wood on the inside, covered in fiberglass, aluminum, or vinyl. The material secured to the outside gives the window more strength and protection as well as style. These are great options for coastal areas that get exposure to salt and other elements that can really do a number on a window. The inside of the home is often exposed wood to take advantage of its natural beauty in a setting away from the weather. There are many great benefits to using these window creations in your home.

Benefits of Using Clad Windows

These window types are extremely durable, and they stand up well to the worst of what nature can throw at them. They are also versatile, since you can choose which material to use atop the wood. Those who prefer painting might opt for fiberglass or even aluminum, while those of us who would rather not have that maintenance would probably choose vinyl.

The sash and frame get extra protection from the setup of clad replacement windows. This helps them to stay in better shape for longer periods of time, and generally adds to their overall life expectancy. The best replacement windows are also very energy efficient and well insulated, and very resistant to moisture and humidity in general. Because of the covering over the wood they require little maintenance on the outside, although when bare wood is chosen on the interior it may require stain or paint every now and again.

Drawbacks to Clad Replacement Windows

As far as replacement units are concerned, material wise these are some of the best at resisting the weather on the exterior side of the unit. However, examples that leave exposed wood frames and sashes on the interior side do require a healthy amount of maintenance and upkeep as would any wood replacement window. Really the major drawback is primarily the maintenance on the inside of clad replacement windows. But for most homeowners this is not a major area of concern.

The reason why most people would just shrug off having to stain the interior side of a clad replacement is the simple fact that it is inside. Even in the dead of winter you could do the job in a T shirt and not get cold. It is simply not the same as having to venture outside, climb up ladders, and deal with the house and the elements to apply a coat of stain or paint. This is not to mention another key difference. In the outside stains and paints applied to replacement windows do not last nearly as long as they do inside the home, because of the constant barrage of heat, wind, rain, snow and so on. So, a little interior maintenance in most cases goes a long way, and this application does not need to be done very often on a clad window.
