Wood windows are an excellent option for bringing natural beauty, craftsmanship and warmth into your Harrisburg home. At Pella, we offer various wood window products that can help bring your home's style to life.

Let’s explore some of our wood window options and their benefits here.

Benefits of Wood Windows

Wood windows offer many benefits, including natural beauty, energy efficiency and style versatility. In addition, wood windows have long-lasting durability. The aluminum cladding on their exterior that we add allows for less maintenance and protects the frame from the elements, such as moisture, and pests and their damaging effects, like termites. Plus, it's available in a range of colors.

Wood windows are also very customizable. You can have them match your existing windows or bring your unique aesthetic to life, whether traditional, historical, modern or another style. 

Innovations

At Pella, we strive to innovate; we want your windows to offer convenience and make life a little bit easier. One of our significant innovations is our window screens, like our Rolscreen options and between-the-glass blinds and shades. Of course, we also have security and safety features in place, like integrated sensors.

Benefits of the Different Product Lines We Offer

Different types of wood window options:

  • Lifestyle Series: casement, awning, picture, double-hung
  • Architect Series – Traditional: casement, awning, double-hung, single-hung, picture
  • Pella Reserve – Traditional: casement, awning, double-hung, single-hung, picture, monumental hung, corner window, arched, angle-top
  • Pella Reserve – Contemporary: casement, awning, picture, corner, angle-top, push-out casement

Our Lifestyle Series wood windows are exceptionally energy efficient, meeting and exceeding ENERGY STAR guidelines. Another great benefit of these wood windows is that they have better noise reduction so that you can have less distracting noise from outside.

Choosing one of our Reserve options is great for matching your home’s style. You can choose between our traditional or our contemporary options. Our traditional wood windows feature amazing historical detailing, like Integral Light Technology grilles and a historic putty profile. In contrast, the contemporary style offers clean lines, squared-off sash profiles and expansive glass. In addition, each of our Reserve styles has its own unique hardware to match each window frame's aesthetic beautifully.

The Versatility of Wood Windows in Terms of Finishes

There are many different finishes that you can choose for your wood windows. Popular options include white, black and a natural wood stain. Our wood windows come standard as pine, but you can also upgrade to Mahogany, Douglas Fir or a custom wood solution if you go with our Reserve products. Take a look at some of the different finishes we can include on your wood windows:

  • Prefinished stains include black, golden oak, early American, Provincial, Red Mahogany, dark mahogany, espresso and charcoal.
  • Prefinished paint includes bright white, white, linen white or primed.
  • Unfinished interiors have custom options like maple, white oak, red oak and cherry.

Wood Window-Inspired Styles

Wood windows are a popular choice for many Harrisburg homeowners. You can have a room with wood windows as the finishing touch or as an inspiration behind the whole room. For example, filling your living room with lots of natural wood windows brings warmth to your home.

Take some inspiration from some of the wood window projects we’ve done in your local area:

This Carlisle, Pennsylvania home needed replacement windows throughout their home. We installed various types of windows, including awning, double-hung and picture windows. The new wood windows featured putty grilles, a black exterior, an unfinished clear pine interior and matte black hardware. The beautiful natural wood interior shows off our craftsmanship and brings warmth to the dining room.

This stunning new home in Green Castle, Pennsylvania features wood windows with a black exterior to add a modern look and a white interior to brighten the home.

This Strasburg, Pennsylvania home really shows you what you can do with wood windows. We installed large picture windows in the bedroom to create a fantastic view of the homeowner’s backyard. The wood windows bring in lots of natural light and truly make you feel closer to nature.

Wood windows are versatile and beautiful, great for any home. Get started on your replacement window process today by scheduling a free in-home consultation.
