Wooden windows can be made from a variety of different species including pine, oak, cherry, hickory or cedar. This wood is sometimes pretreated to help it resist rotting and damage from insects as well. The beauty of wooden windows is the fact that creating ornate trim and sills around the opening is much easier to do than with metal or vinyl. For this reason, wood is often the preferred choice for updating many historical homes.
Average wooden window costs will largely depend on the type of species used to build the frame. The price of lumber continuously fluctuates based upon availability, which is why some varieties cost more than others do. Pre-treated lumber may cost more, but will also last longer, meaning that it will pay for itself in the long run. Timber framed windows can also be affected by the size of the opening, thickness of the glass, and the type of paint or stain used to coat the outside of them. When old windows need to be removed first, this could also result in increased prices for labour.

Q. Why choose wood over other window materials?
A. According to a recent national survey, the replacement of wooden doors and windows is the biggest threat to a property’s value. The main reason wood is an ideal candidate for many homes is that it has aesthetic appeal and can easily be adapted (and later altered) to suit the look of any property. Wood is also a good insulator with very low thermal conductivity properties, which makes it thermally efficient. Wood is also a renewable material which makes them a good choice for environmentally conscious home owners.
Q. Are wooden windows still being used on new homes?
A. Yes, wooden windows are still being installed on new homes, particularly those being built in historic neighborhoods. They may also be used on rustic cabins or timber homes because they present a more uniform appearance. People also choose them for miniature homes and guest cottages because they are readily available at home improvement stores, and are therefore ideal for DIY projects.
