What is Window Cladding?
When it comes to window options, wood is a timeless and highly coveted choice. After all, wood windows provide a warm, sophisticated, and polished look that instantly elevates a home’s interior and exterior appearance. However, for all of its beauty and benefits, wood windows are not moisture resistant, which leaves them vulnerable to issues like warping and rotting over time. The solution? Window cladding.
Wood Without the Drawbacks
Window cladding is a vinyl or metal cover that protects a wooden core. It is found on the side of the window that faces the home’s exterior, and it helps preserve the wood and protect it from the elements. Some of the benefits of window cladding include:
- Weather resistance – Cladding prevents water, wind, and other natural elements from penetrating the original window material.
- Low maintenance – Since cladding prevents wood windows from rotting and sustaining other forms of wear and tear, it’ll require virtually no maintenance to keep them looking like new.
- Long-lasting beauty – Windows that have cladding will allow you to enjoy all of the beauty that wood windows provide for decades to come.
