Wooden Windows

Classic, warm, and elegant, nothing beats the natural beauty and insulating properties of real wood. If it’s wood windows you’re after, Skywalker offers some excellent wood window products.

Why Choose Wood Windows?

Let’s try a little visualization experience. If I mention the word “window,” what image comes to your mind? An aluminum window? Something framed in vinyl? Probably not. More than likely, what pops up on your mental screen is a glass-paned window surrounded by a rich-colored wooden frame. In fact, it could be said that wood is the original window framing material, and it’s been in use for many centuries.

And this is why many people choose wood windows. They’re traditional, they’re beautiful, and people simply like the way they look. In fact, looks are probably the #1 reason why folks choose wood windows.

Some of the Window Types

Since modern windows and replacement windows come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and designs, we thought we’d briefly explain and summarize some of the major window types that are available to you.

Double-Hung

Double-hung windows are the most common type of windows found in U.S. homes. These are traditional, top-and-bottom rectangular windows featuring a grid of smaller rectangular panes. Both the top and bottom windows can be raised to open, lowered to close, and come in a wide variety of frame materials, including vinyl, wood, and aluminum.

Single-Hung

Single-hung windows look basically identical to double hung windows, with the main difference being that only the bottom window moves. The top sash is fixed, one advantage of which being the fact that it provides a firm seal against the elements.

Casement Windows

Casement windows are contemporary-looking and convenient. The window is mounted on hinges, and the window can be cranked or pushed open or shut manually or with an automated mechanism. They are more energy efficient than some other window styles, and they can come in single frame or double casement window arrangements.

Awning Windows

Awning windows have a similar design to casement windows, but are mounted differently. An awning window’s hinges are mounted at the top, rather than on the sides like a typical casement window.

Bay Windows

Bay windows offer many attractive features, including panoramic views, plenty of natural light, cross breeze ventilation, and they add a little more square footage to your home’s interior. They also add some interesting dimension to the exterior of your home. Bay windows come in both casement and double-hung designs.

Bow Windows

Bow windows have a similar design and function to bay windows, with the main difference being that bow windows project out in a curved arc, where traditional bay windows have more of an angular geometry.

Slider windows

Slider windows work exactly the way they sound – they open and close by sliding horizontally along their frame. Unlike double-hung windows with their grid of smaller panes, slider windows offer larger, more unbroken views. Single-slider windows have only one sliding sash, while with a double-slider window both ends can be opened and shut independently.

Architectural Shapes

Architectural shape windows are a type of specialty window that highlight your home’s design with attractive geometric patterns, including octagon, trapezoid, triangle, elliptical, colonial arch, full circle, etc. Most architectural shape windows are fixed, meaning they don’t open and close, but they can be arranged around and alongside other movable windows, like sliders.

Picture Windows

A picture window is typically a large, fixed window with large panes that allow for grand, unobstructed views. Picture windows do come in a variety of sizes and shapes, but are most common in homes with high ceilings or vaulted ceilings. While picture windows don’t offer any ventilation, they do provide rooms with an abundance of natural light.

Features of Wood Windows

There are other reasons to choose wood, though. Besides offering natural beauty and warmth, wood windows also provide some other nice features:

  • Aesthetics: Nothing beats the natural elegance and warm look of wood. Wood can also be painted or stained to create a number of different looks to match your particular style.
  • Custom Design Options: Wood is a fairly easy material to work with, and can be milled, fashioned, and finished in any number of intricate and original designs.
  • Good Insulator: Wood is a much better insulator than aluminum or steel, and a quality wood frame provides insulation properties that most other materials simply can’t match. Wood’s insulating properties can help keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Wood is more effective at buffering outside sounds, too.
  • Wood Lasts: Wood does require a little maintenance (including periodic painting or staining), but if you’ll take care of your wood windows, they can last you a lifetime. Wood won’t rust or corrode like metal, either. And with proper painting and treatment, your wood frames can be protected from the potential threats of humidity and insects.
