Need to replace your clad-wood windows in or near the Seattle area?
Lake Washington Windows has the wide selection and installation expertise that you’re looking for!
Clad-Wood replacement windows are often chosen by Seattle homeowners seeking the classic good looks of an interior wood finish. By definition, a “clad” wood window features wooden frames on the interior side, while the exterior is protected by cladding made of aluminum, fiberglass, or vinyl.
Before cladded window products were introduced, homes were commonly fitted with solid wood windows. Problems including wood rot, warping, and overall high maintenance led manufacturers to add an exterior cladding to protect their wood windows and improve durability.
Today, clad wood products remain very popular with many consumers as they offer traditional styling, historically-accurate features, and multiple color options. Although clad wood products still require some degree of maintenance, they are a great choice for homes and homeowners who are seeking classic style with modern improvements.
At Lake Washington Windows & Doors, we are proud to provide our customers with the Milgard Essence and Andersen Windows Aluminum Clad product lines. Both manufacturers have consistently offered excellent versatility, style, and customer service that are among the best in the window industry.
