As we shift into the colder months of the year, some people tend to hesitate when it comes to buying wooden windows. But why are people afraid? What causes some to hesitate to upgrade their home? You see, there’s the idea that wood shrinks in the cold weather and expands in the hot weather. However, as professionals of our craft, we are here to tell you that that’s not exactly the case. Discover more about how cold weather affects wood windows and see why you shouldn’t hesitate on your next purchase. 

Is The Weather An Issue?

No matter if you’ve never left the state of Louisiana or if you’re a more recent resident—it’s common knowledge that the weather is temperamental. Although, because the humidity is nearly year-round, we have very short winters here. And, even while cold for us, they’re very rarely below freezing. 

On the other hand, if you live in Mississippi or Texas, you also know the winters are less likely to drop below freezing temperatures. Since these are not extreme, there’s very little chance of your windows contracting at all. And, even if they do, it takes many years for them to cause any damage.

How Can I Protect My Wood Windows?

The thing is, damage to your wood windows due to weather only occurs in extreme cases. And this damage can easily be avoided when they’re bought from the right professionals. In this case, professionalism matters. “Why?” you ask? 

Thanks to the wood windows we use at Relief Windows, our products are made to protect from water, wood rot, and termites for years to come. It’s all thanks to the treatment on the wood. With this water-based treatment, the wood in your windows has protection all the way to the core, instead of a surface-level treatment like most other wood windows. With this, there’s very little you have to do to protect your wood windows.

Our professionals know that wood windows are an art. In fact, you could say that we’re artists, adding the finishing touches to your masterpiece of a home. Trust in the right professionals to provide and put in your wood windows today.
