Wooden Replacement Windows

Wooden replacement windows are excellent pairs with older or country style homes. Modern wood replacements are well made and much more weather resistant than the ones of old. However, as always, these windows need to be maintained or they will fail over time. These are not like vinyl or fiberglass, materials you can largely ignore and not do too much damage to. These ones require a good coat of paint or stain, and need their tracks oiled. They need an eye kept on their latches. In short, they need some attention, more so than most others.

But this is exactly what draws many people to wooden replacement windows. These are not automatic, and cannot be forgotten or they will raise a fuss. It is almost as if once they are installed in your home they become a part of the family. Many wood enthusiasts look at their old frames greedily, counting down the days until they can invest in a whole house full of wooden replacement windows. These are just a niche item these days, but one with more significance than their market share could ever explain. Folks considering whether to opt for vinyl or step out and buy wooden replacements should spend a little time comparing the two.

Time to Replace Windows

Sometimes you get an idea in your head and it is impossible to get rid of. This is how it is for homeowners who dream of switching to wooden frames when they're doing a replacement job at their homes. The only trouble for many of them is that their current window frames are not ready to go just yet. It is a terrible shame when your home refuses to break down on cue.

Fortunately not everyone has this particular trouble, especially those of us whose old window frames are of the wooden variety. Older frames like these tend to get weathered, chipped, rotten, and worn out. They don't usually perform for decades on end like certain old windows of other types unless their owners maintain them diligently over time. (This is a lesson for all of us wood crazy people today: maintenance is still hugely important!)

When it is time to do the replacement job, buyers have to select the ones they will pick out to install. This in itself can be quite a process unless you know exactly what you want. Of course, it can also be half the fun if you have the right attitude. Wooden replacement windows are made to keep the outside weather outside; but more importantly, they exist to look good in your living room.

Quality Wood Replacement Windows

Today's wooden replacement windows are made to the highest industry standards. They seal well to block out drafts. They resist the constant bombardment of the sun, wind, and rain. They are stronger and better crafted than at any other time in history. Yet wooden windows still have the same shortcomings that make so many people choose vinyl or fiberglass. For example, these units actually require stain or paint in order to be weather proof. This means that they need to be maintained over time. And they are not particularly great insulators, although the glass in them insulates better than old wooden sashes ever used to. And wooden replacement windows are not as cheap as vinyl. Buyers have to be willing to spend more money to buy a product that requires more work.

Considering Vinyl Replacement Windows

For some people, vinyl replacement window products are preferable to wooden replacement windows. They do not need to be painted or stained. In fact, once they are installed, buyers can largely forget about them. They are the ultimate modern marvel. Yet they lack a certain something that wooden replacement windows definitely do not lack. For most wood aficionados, the look and the feel cannot be imitated or equaled by any other material, particularly vinyl. For others, it is actually the smell of the wooden frame that matters so much.

It is obvious why wood will always have a market even as vinyl continues to dominate overall. For some of us, the price of the window and the ease of ownership are just not all that important relative to other, more important things. When you look at a wood replacement frame, it looks like it came from the earth. When you feel it, it feels the way house building materials should feel. There is certain ruggedness to these products. There is a response that they elicit that is just not there with vinyl. For this reason, wood replacements will probably always be sold. Their numbers may dwindle, but their significance will never change. Wooden replacement windows in their own way hearken back to the days when nature was a bigger part of the home ownership experience.
