When builders and homeowners visit our showroom in Winter Park, FL one of the most common questions that is asked is "why would you buy wood windows over vinyl or aluminum"? Wound't you be worried about rot? Wouldn't they expand with the extreme heat and moisture in Florida? Wouldn't they need to be replaced sooner than others? These are all valid questions and we are here to answer them for you.
The reality is that all of these concerns would become actual problems if and only if you are buying windows from any other company other than JELD-WEN. JELD-WEN is the only window company that uses their patented AuraLast technology for treating their exclusively grown wood (pine).
AuraLast is JELD-WEN’s proprietary water-based wood protection process. Unlike traditional chemical dip-treatments that only coat a thin layer on the wood’s surface, AuraLast delivers virtually 100 percent surface-to-core protection. JELD-WEN wood windows, patio doors and door frames with AuraLast Wood can protect you from the expense, damage and inconvenience of decaying wood.
