For ages, wood has been a material of choice for replacement windows, offering homes a wide variety of benefits including durability, energy efficiency and lasting beauty. If you are getting ready to start a window replacement project in St. Paul and you are still on the fence about what windows you would like to see in your home, we would be happy to show you why wood windows are one of our most popular replacement window picks at Pella Windows and Doors.
At Pella Windows and Doors, we realize that a concern with wood windows is the amount of maintenance that comes with it.
