Do wood windows last longer than other types of windows? Yes, they do. With proper care, your wood windows can last for a lifetime. All you need to do is schedule regular maintenance for all your wood windows. In Tinley Park, you can call on us for inspection, installation, repairs, and the restoration of your wood windows.
The flexible properties of wood make it easy for architects and home builders to create different designs for wood windows. You can choose the arch wood windows, Bay windows, pivot wood windows triangular wood windows and many other options. Wood windows are ideal to allow in natural light and air into the room. The solid wood frames can also support window glass of different sizes and types. These windows can be found in the living room, kitchen, bedrooms, dining room and bathrooms.
As mentioned earlier, with proper care wood windows can remain functional for a long time preventing common issues such as the following:
Untreated wood will attract pests such as termites and other wood eating ants that can cause a lot of damage. This is, however, a situation that can be prevented by regular maintenance.
The Need for Paint Restoration
Wood windows that have been painted can lose their attractive features over time due to fading caused by exposure to weather conditions. Repainting of all of the wood windows in a house can become an entire ordeal, although it is far easier and more affordable than window replacement.
When wood windows are neglected for many years without proper care, they can become damaged due to exposure to moisture causing rot in the wood. During restoration projects, these signs can be spotted early and prevented. Maintenance is the key to a warm and cosy home with no drafts in any season.
Regular-sized wood windows are usually double-hung with two sashes. Our window sash repair services can fix and restore the sash on single-hung or double-hung wood windows.
