Can Wood Windows stand up to the Hot and Humid Annapolis Climate?
Wood windows are known for their natural beauty, an aesthetic appeal vinyl and aluminum just can’t compete with. However, where wood has fallen short in the past is performance, especially in hot and humid conditions, like those in Annapolis, Maryland. And don’t get us started about rot and termites. Yikes! But JELD-WEN is changing the game with its products made with solid pine AuraLast® Wood. Not only is JELD-WEN now offering a new industry-leading lifetime limited warranty against rot and termites, but the company has partnered with OSI to offer a premier installation system that helps ensure proper window installation to prevent energy loss and water penetration.
“We’ve taken a three-prong approach – the best warranty, installation method and technology – to deliver the most reliable wood window and door products on the market,” said JELD-WEN director of product management Elizabeth Souders.
AuraLast® Wood stand up to the Annapolis Climate
Introduced nearly 12 years ago, AuraLast Wood helped revolutionize the wood window industry. Because of its vacuum-pressured treatment process, which helps protect solid pine wood all the way through to the core, these wood windows have a unique ability to stand up against rot, termites and water saturation. This makes AuraLast® Wood windows ideal for a wide variety of applications:
- Rainy climates
- Humid climates (like Annapolis in the summer)
- Areas where termites are a constant threat
- And More!
“AuraLast Wood delivers the richness and beauty of real wood, without the high maintenance and worry,” said Souders. “Now, we’ve added even more peace of mind with an even better warranty and a great installation offering.”
